"Who Are The Modern Day Romeos"


"Navy Pier Chicago"

"Modern Day Romeos hits the stage, no matter where that stage is and rocks the crowd into a frenzy. With covers ranging from Black Betty, Honky Tonk Woman, Centerfold, Santeria and Dancing with Myself / Sedated medley the party gets kicking. And throughout the show, from that first moment, through everyone doing the “Chicken Dance” through the high fives all around –and just because; if you are at an MDR show and even if you come alone, you will make friends during the performance, Jim and the band will make sure of that… you will be pumped up, energized and wanting more by the end of the show… put these guys on your list of shows to see and no matter if it is during the summer or later before sooner during the fall winter indoor season.” -


Still working on that hot first release.



What exactly is a Modern Day Romeo? By definition it is a male living in the current era using ideals and characteristics shown in older forms of romance and applying to his current state. The Modern Day Romeos use this same ideology and apply it to MUSIC. The Modern Day Romeos take rock, disco, pop, rap, and alternative music from all era’s (60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s.) and blend it together making the music sound fresh and new while not comprising a truly amazing stage show. What sets the Modern Day Romeos apart is their commitment to FANS. Listening to what they want to hear and say, and paying attention to the vibe of the crowd so to be sure that they have spent their hard earned money and gotten something of value in return. Modern Day Romoes believe crowd participation is a key ingredient in the success for any band. Nearly every song performed during the night includes some form of crowd singing or crowd dancing on stage. Not to mention the antics of the band themselves, including Mick Jagger, Michael Jackson, Axl Rose, & Neil Diamond impersonations, cow bell solos, kazoo solos, song segways, over-the-head-guitar solos, there is nothing the band won’t consider to do to please the most important element of any show, THE CROWD. In return the Romeos shower the crowd with free t-shirts, key chains, stickers from their official sponsors, CityBeverage and Bud Light.

One of the bands strength is its diversity. The band consists of 2 members Jim and Justin Wojdyla who were both brought listening to hip hop, rap and modern alternative, 2 members Chris Perfect and Mike Zaitz who have a strong “hair metal” and harder alternative presence and 1 member Steve Gill whom is a classic rock guitarist in its truest sense. With this much diversity the band is comfortable with playing ANYTHING, priding themselves on playing what others dare not to.

All together the Modern Day Romeos have over 50 years of musical experience between them bringing all styles of music to ONE band.
