Biography

TEST PILOT IS A THREE PIECE FULL OUT AUDIO ASSULT
• Fans often say they have never seen a local act with so much dynamic power and presence.
• Test Pilot was reformed in 2006 after several years of dormancy, and member changes. Founding members Bill Arthur and Brian Niggemann, recruited friend and local drummer Bill Glass to complete the line up.

TEST PILOT, was soon sharing the stage with national acts, such as Less Claypool, and Local H, as well as securing slots on the taste of summer festival in Wisconsin, as well as the Windy city motor rally in Chicago. Hard work was paying off, and was about to land Test pilot in Chicago on July 24th when they won the first round of the Bodog Battle of the bands in Chicago. Not taking the win for granted, they went straight into the studio with Shane Olivo to record their first ever E.P entitled “Metalfunkapunkedelic”, and handed it off to Grammy award winner Trevor Sadler at Mastermind productions to be mastered. With so much success in as little as a few short months, 2006 was an explosive year for TEST PILOT. Their dedication and hard work ethic has cemented there name in the local Milwaukee scene as a force to be reckoned with, as well as placing the band in several Milwaukee papers.

TEST PILOT harkens back to the days of booming rhythms, and solid guitar leads made famous by bands like LED ZEPPELIN.

Their music is a funky mixture of soul, punk, alternative and reggae, with hints of metal, folk, hip hop and psychedelic rock, blended with an over the top stage show and dancability that leaves the crowd begging for more.

• “Their performance was tight, their songs original, and their fans committed. The guys did not disappoint, and will be hard to beat in the latter rounds.” Gus Capone Bodog music
• “One of my favorite local bands” Dominic Ceci WMSE 91.7 Milwaukee
