Biography

VonDin is a Milwaukee based band made up of three extremely talented musicians rocking familiar local stages such as: The Main Stage, The Rave, V’Nuk’s Lounge, Linneman’s, The Doctor’ Office and John Henry’s. On occasion VonDin can be found unplugged at local open jams including Linneman’s Riverwest, Bremin Café and Points East. Backed by Royal Records, the band has worked with several production companies including Gorilla Productions, Emergenza and Icon Entertainment. VonDin is currently seeking management and a long-term record deal.

Mike Majdoch (bass and vocals) was practically born with a bass in his hands. Accordingly, Mike’s been with several Milwaukee area bands, learning new styles, while perfecting his proficiency and harmonic techniques. Mike’s hammering, thunderous fingerpicking bass style bridges the gaps between progressive rock, funk, and classic rock while exploring new frontiers in bass melody.

Eric Wennerstrand (guitar and vocals) at age 8 found flamenco guitar and later in college found music theory, with a degree from Cabrillo College. Since then Eric has played in various bands in California and Milwaukee. From modern hard rock, alternative, metal, 70’s psychedelic rock, punk and grunge, Eric’s influences come through loud and clear in both his over the top playing and eclectic songwriting.

Mike LaPlant. (drums and vocals) steady as a rock, holds down the backbeat. Mike has also been in several groups and has become much more than a drummer, Mike is a singer and songwriter credited for writing VonDin’s soulful ballads. Paradoxically, Mike’s drumming is bombastic, well structured with; lighting-fast fills, layered tom work and well placed accents. Mike rocks the house.

When you go to a VonDin show, expect your adrenaline to flow, expect fist pumping, expect catchy and intriguing music. Also expect a blog of reflective lyrics concerning life issues, introspection and the world, as we know it. When you hear VonDin don’t expect all the songs to sound alike. VonDin is a band with three excellent musicians whose personalities are as different as their diverse playing styles and repertoire; it is this diversity that creates the VonDin cornucopia of sound that often penetrates your mind and infects your soul.
