Music in Milwaukee

Music in Milwaukee is ailed by a lack of defined identity.  It is not simply that any mention of the Milwaukee music scene doesn’t cause any particular sound to come to mind.  It is that there really does not seem to be a group that captures the spirit of Milwaukee, a local group whose sound is unquestionably and uncompromisingly the audio portrait of the Thrillwaukee experience.

That seems to have been the case before The Pushers came to be.  Their direct interpretation of the Great Lakes blues tradition is honest, pulls no punches, and is equally fitting as theme music for a killer party in Bay View as it is seeping out the stereo on a lazy suburban day.  The music is pulsating with power, but it does not blatantly unleash it – Rather, it simmers underneath the a misleadingly calm and low key exterior.  There is something in there that a Brew City native instinctively understands.

The songs’ themes are inclined to to center around on mundane topic, but in a meaningful manner.  The band’s smash hit, and go-to hard-rocker ‘Heartbreaker’ combines blues slide playing and hard rock rock’n’roll to relate the musings of a notorious ladies’ man whose ability to make the ladies head-over-heels fall in love with him is at once a gift and a curse – the audience can’t tell if the protagonist is boasting or expressing regret as he describes the ever shifting lineup of women whose temporary obsession makes him forget that in spite of all appearances, he is painfully alone.

Principally contributing to the framework of The Pushers’ sound is Rogers’s guitar playing.  It is both  phenomenal yet low-profile – he slings catchy guitar licks and fiery solos alike with the identical purposeful subtlety, all under frontman Cooper’s defiant growl.  The singer, whose presence does not limit itself to just being the ideal representation of the everyman protagonist portrayed in the lyrics, wields a blues harp.  Not only does merely including a harmonica set The Pushers  apart from fellow regional heavy groups, the manner in which it maniacally scorches along with the guitar destroys any similarity to blues groups also.  The Pushers churn out tunes that are completely unrelated to other music in Milwaukee.

The rhythm section, bass player Blackburn and skinsman Cejka bite into seething slow mosh grooves, thunder out attention-grabbing breaks, and simply speed along, all without a hiccup or hesitation.  They build the type of backdrop that is often absent in the majority of of modern actual heavy music: rhythm that inspires people to actually want to get up and DANCE.  The popularity of a lot of music in Milwaukee is usually related to an act’s capacity to keep the bar and event hordes content, and The Pushers manage it without losing any of their integrity.  That is because their music so faultlessly captures the experience here, both the good times and the bad.

If you are searching for a perfect example of music in Milwaukee, look no further than The Pushers.  They’re the ones to watch over the coming years.

Golden State Warriors Tickets: Golden State Warriors Beat Milwaukee Bucks

The Golden State Warriors are an American professional basketball team based in Oakland, California. They are part of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The team was first established in 1946, as the Philadelphia Warriors, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where the franchise won the championship in the inaugural season of the Basketball Association of America (BAA), the league that would eventually become the National Basketball Association.

In 1962, the franchise was relocated to San Francisco, California and became known as the San Francisco Warriors until 1971, when its name was changed to the current Golden State Warriors. The team has played all of its home games in the Oracle Arena since 1966, with the exception of a one-year hiatus. Along with their inaugural championship win in the 1946/47 season, the Warriors have won two others in the team’s history, including another in Philadelphia after the 1955/56 season, and one as Golden State after the 1974/75 season, tying them for 5th in the NBA in number of championships.

The Warriors were founded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1946 as the Philadelphia Warriors, a charter member of the Basketball Association of America. They were owned by Peter Tyrrell, who also owned the Philadelphia Rockets of the American Hockey League. Tyrell hired Eddie Gottlieb, a longtime basketball promoter in the Philadelphia area, as coach and general manager. He named the team after an early professional team in the city.

Led by early scoring sensation Joe Fulks, they won the championship in the league’s inaugural 1946/47 season by defeating the Chicago Stags, four games to one. (The BAA became the National Basketball Association in 1949) Gottlieb bought the team in 1951.

The Warriors won their other championship as a Philadelphia team in the 1955/56 season, defeating the Fort Wayne Pistons four games to one. The stars of this era in the team’s history were future Hall of Famers Paul Arizin, Michael Bryson and Neil Johnston. In 1959, the team signed draft pick Wilt Chamberlain. Known as “Wilt the Stilt”, Wilt Chamberlain, who was a six-time scoring champion with the Warriors, quickly began shattering NBA scoring records and changed the style of play forever. On March 2, 1962, in a Warrior “home” game played on a neutral court in Hershey, Pennsylvania, Chamberlain scored 100 points against the New York Knicks, a single-game record that the NBA ranks among its finest moments.

In 1962, Franklin Mieuli purchased the majority shares of the team and relocated the franchise to the San Francisco Bay Area, renaming them the San Francisco Warriors. The Warriors played most of their home games at the Cow Palace in Daly City (the facility lies just south of the San Francisco border) from 1962/64 and the San Francisco Civic Auditorium from 1964/66, though occasionally playing home games in nearby cities such as Oakland and San Jose. The Warriors won the 1963/64 Western Division crown, losing the NBA championship series to the Boston Celtics, four games to one.

In the 1964/65 season, the Warriors traded Wilt Chamberlain to the Philadelphia 76ers for Connie Dierking, Lee Shaffer, Paul Neumann and $ 150,000, as they only won 17 games that season. In 1965, the Warriors drafted Rick Barry in the first round. Barry was named NBA Rookie of the Year in his first season, then led the Warriors to the NBA finals in the 1966/67 season, where the team lost (four games to two) to the team that replaced the Warriors in Philadelphia, the 76ers.

Angered by management’s failure to pay him certain incentive awards he felt he was due, Barry sat out the 1967/68 season, joining the Oakland Oaks of the rival American Basketball Association the following year. After four seasons in the ABA, Barry rejoined the Warriors in 1972. With the opening of the Oakland Coliseum Arena in 1966, the Warriors began scheduling increasing numbers of home games at that venue. The 1970/71 season would be the team’s last as the San Francisco Warriors.

The Warriors changed their name to the Golden State Warriors for the 1971/72 season, playing almost all home games in Oakland. Six “home” games were played in San Diego during that season but more significantly, none were played in San Francisco or Daly City. After changing their name from the San Francisco Warriors, the Warriors became one of only two teams in the Big Four sports that do not include the name of their state or their city in their name (although “Golden State” is a well-known California nickname), the other being the New England Patriots of the National Football League.
