BandRockClassic Rock

Wasted Talent is a live music experience that bleeds Milwaukee. These home town boys love to play any tunes that rock and anything that will get people dancing...from Zeppelin to Jet, Setzer to Petty, Billy Idol to AC/DC...if it rocks, Wasted Talent rocks it.


Wasted Talent is a band that loves to rock. One of the biggest things that sets them apart from other bands is that they are in it for the music, the fun of playing shows, and drinking beer with their buds.

Wasted Talent is a cover band...and their sound has often been called "hard-pop-rock-abilly." This comes from the fact that they'll play just about anything that rocks...from Zeppelin to Jet, Setzer to Social D, Billy Idol to AC/DC...if it rocks, Wasted Talent rocks it.

Wasted Talent also doesn't take itself too seriously...partaking in "social-ables," cracking jokes, and getting out in the crowd wirelessly are regular parts of a show.

When it comes down to it, Wasted Talent has over 40 years of experience between rocking out in the Milwaukee area. They've played festivals, parties, and local dives...and they've rocked them all.

All our audio clips are LIVE...not recorded in a studio. Many bands spend thousands of dollars recording demo tracks resulting in a sound they can never reproduce at shows. No smoke and mirrors with Wasted Talent....


None...yet...the first Wasted Talent album of original material is slated for release sometime in 2010.
