The best kept secret in music


"The Shepherd Express"

"Characterized by uncommon time signatures and resounding horn orchestration, Repertoire has a diverse style for many tastes." - 2003

"Maximum Ink"

"This is a band that you need to see live to fully appreciate due to the sheer volume of music they produce. Overall the band is incredibly diverse, not pigeon-holing themselves into a single genre." - 2003

"The UWM Leader"

"Repertoire has an extreme local following; interest in the band and their crowds seem to grow with each performance." - 2003

"The New Perspective"

"Whether you're feeling funky or have the blues, whether you want to dance or chill out, you'll discover Even Sleep fits all your music cravings. If you're seeking something different, something origional, something with genuine quality, look for Repertoire's Even Sleep at Barnes & Noble book stores and the Exclusive Co. or buy it online at" - 2004


Repertoire's first LP "Even Sleep" was released in Fall 2003 and has sold over 1000 copies to date. They were nominated by WAMI for Best Rock Group 2005 and now have the first runner up to 94.5 WKTI's Rockstar Project singing lead. The band will be releasing their sophmore album, "Moving On" in summer 2006.


Feeling a bit camera shy


With a loyal fan base that is rapidly spreading throughout the college circuit and a debut album that is receiving rave reviews,  Repertoire has already achieved the acclaim most unsigned bands spend years chasing.  The band has been booked by UW LaCrosse, UW Madison, UW Milwaukee, Marquette University, Carroll College, and MSOE. They have headlined at some of the biggest venues in the state including Shank Hall, The Rave, Luther's Blues, and most recently, Bastille Days 2005.  

The diversity of sounds and styles spread over the CD's eleven tracks not only showcases the depth of the band's talent base, but further explains the band's name.

While paying homage to diverse  20th Century Masters such as Hendrix, Marley, and McCartney, Repertoire is not afraid to explore diverse musical horizons and push one step beyond.  While the musicians work within the general framework of classic rock history, unique time signatures, multi-layered horn parts, and soul-touching harmonies set this band apart.

As such, Repertoire is not only hard to categorize, but appealing to diverse audiences.  Within the course of one song that is seemingly smooth, a bubbling undercurrent of mounting energy erupts, catapulting us into "another crazy night."  Escape from depression is confronted with clapping hands and a flute that seems to be soaring with monarchs.  Songs are unpredictable without being incongruent and, as such, create compelling sounds that appeal to a wide variety of musical tastes.  Whether you prefer your music smooth or hard-driving, you will be pleased.  If meaningful lyrics are important, they are there.  Those who relish haunting melodies and stirring harmonies will find much to harvest.  Most significantly, the mix is so subtle that you will not realize you've left your most favored genre until after you're hooked.

Quite simply, the music of Repertoire defies written explanation.  You must hear it to understand.
