If you would be so kind, please take a moment and LIKE us on our FaceBook page. The more you like us, the more we show all these places that we're a fun and talented group!
Also, if you'd like to simply send us a compliment, please fill out the Contact form on this website. Please include your full name and phone/email....BUT -
Montage WILL NOT use your full last name or phone on this site without your permission. Montage keeps the info in our records for those places that want references from good people like you!!
Montage is about to play its final gig for the summer at State Fair on August 10.
We can’t THANK all of our new and current Montage supporters enough! You guys have come to our gigs, raved about us to friends, danced to our tunes and had a wonderful time with everything! Our energy feeds off of yours! Never forget that. We’ll give you the best performance we can and all we ask in return is for you to have a great time!!
Behind the scenes:
Jude is our sound man. He’s the guy that makes us sound good. Quite honestly, without him we would be less of a great sounding band. So, if you happen to be at one of our future gigs, say hello to JUDE. He’s a great guy, oh AND SOUND MAN!!
Please visit our PIX page. Usually, pix are posted of the most recent gigs we’ve performed.
Who knows? You might see someone you know - or even YOURSELF!! :)
Shout out to Shirl. She IS part of Montage! She takes the videos you see on our Facebook page and some you see here on this webpage. The majority of PIX you see were taken from her.
Chances are you’ve seen her focusing on a bit of Montage history for these pages.
Also, Montage does receive pictures from people who are close to the band.
Michelle (one of our wonderful followers) submits the other percentage of pictures you’ll see on both sites. You can’t miss her at Montage gigs. No shoes and dancing up a storm!
Say HI to her too.
Montage is being searched out for playing private events.
We’ve already played Corporate Christmas parties and for wedding receptions at places like Miller Park.
We’ve had a ton(!) of interest for next summer and we’re just getting started for the fall.
If you’d like more info on hiring Montage for your event, please send us an email through the CONTACT page here.
Stay tuned to our Upcoming Events page for more info.
Summer’s well underway and Montage has been playing festivals and Miller Park!
We’ve made new friends, added more tunes to our lineup and are giving back our talents to you in the form of GROOVES!!
C’mon out and see Montage at a performance venue near you. As of this date (7.21.19) we still have the Washington County Fair, Pewaukee on the Lake and State Fair [TWICE] (Double “K” Ranch stage) in our sites!
So, take a break from that “farmer tan” and come on out and burn a place out on the dance floor! Have a cold one and as always, enjoy the COOL music brought to you by one of Milwuakee’s top UNKNOWN bands - MONTAGE.
Montage welcomes our new female vocalist - Nicole!!
Nicole has been met by many friendly faces and compliments from our Montage fans! Thank you all for the warm and wonderful “Welcomes" to her!!
Montage is ready for some SUMMER fun and music!!
Come see our shows this summer! Visit our Upcoming Events page for more information on where and when we’ll be playing next. It’s always a dance party when MONTAGE is in the house, or, at a Festival near you!!

Thanks to all the people (new friends and many familiar faces) that came out to hear Montage at Suburban Bourbon. It was a great and wild time!! Check out the Pix section to see what went on for that gig!!
Stay tuned for our next show at Suburban Bourbon on April 13th!
We’ve had inquires as to who takes many of the pix and vid’s for us. That person is Shirl! She’s been doing all these for Montage for over 3 years. You can see her Pix and vid’s on the website. Don’t be afraid to say “hi” to Shirl, you might get your picture taken and it could show up on the website!!
Stay Tuned!! More new venues, music and surprises await all of you who support Montage! Thanks for being there for us!!
What a year it’s been!
Wait? It just started!!
Montage is off to a wonderful start of the New Year!
We played for Pabst, had our one year anniversary at Mezcalero’s restaurant (with a record crowd in attendance) and have some new places that we’re going to be performing at in the near future!
Thanks to the people that have become Montage supporters and a hearty “WELCOME” to all the NEW faces that we’ve met at our recent gigs! More and more musical things are coming your way through your favorite band: MONTAGE.
We’re also adding more and more tunes to our set lists, majority by YOUR request.
Keep an ear out for the new songs and your feet ready to dance to them.
See you at our next gig!!

The eve before Christmas with gifts and more to be prepared, Montage says “Thank you” -to you- through fun and its music that we have shared.
It’s time to be together, perhaps “sit” all a glow, at least for today given it’s Christmas, there isn’t a lot - if any snow.
Here’s a toast to those of us as we bring in the NEW YEAR! May it bring joy and happiness and less - one tear.
Montage hopes to continue to share its music and talents with you and with those that are new. You’ve allowed us to share our musical gifts, and you’ve danced - the many and the few!
Holiday Greetings to you and yours! May it still be full of wonders and happiness, but still to take time and reflect on the reason for the season.

Montage has some great things coming your way!
First, our next gig is our Halloween Costume Ball at Mezcalero’s Mexican Restaurant.
Come dressed as .. er..whatever you like and join Montage for a Ghoulishly Fun & Dancing evening. There will be prizes for the best costumes, so come join the FRIGHTivities!!
Second, and speaking of Mezcalero’s Mexican Restaurant..
Montage will have it’s ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY at Mez’s this January!!
Mezcalero’s opened their doors to MONTAGE and allowed us a centrally located Milwaukee base to perform our musical styles for you. Check the UpComing Events page for info. Montage has built its reputation at providing you with a wonderful evening of dance music and we’re not about to stop. Help us celebrate our anniversary at Mezcalero’s this January!!
There are performing venues in the Milwaukee area that are looking for bands. Many of our followers have suggested places for Montage to try and get into to perform. We ask that you take a few of our Montage “cards” and get them into the hands of the people that are in positions of hiring for those establishments. YOUR WORD has more pull that anyone of us in Montage going into that venue and trying to sell ourselves. This is simply being honest and it is a true statement. We’re just “another band” to these places, but with Your help Montage can continue to become a stronger named band in the area.
Thanks for reading AND supporting Montage!!

"I" am a musician.
- We are the people that stay up half the night to finish that song we can't get out of our heads.
- We're typically misunderstood and always underpaid.
- We spend more time packing, driving, and unpacking vans full of gear than we do on stage playing.
- BUT, We bring entertainment, healing, love, and passion to a world that desperately needs it, and I wouldn't change a thing.
