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!!

After some very successful performances at outdoor festivals (including a showcase with the East Troy Jazz Symposium band) Montage has decided to share our videos and pix a bit more freely between this webpage and the Facebook page. So, if you're looking for some info on the band, some music excerpts, or simply to read what Montage is all about, take a look at both of our social medial sites: This webpage and Facebook.
Sharing IS caring and Montage tries to share music, pix and more with all of you!
Come out and see us, you might end up seeing a pic of yourself on one of the media sites!!

Summer is hot and so is the band MONTAGE! We've started our festival season by performing at the Nixon Park "shell" in Hartland. The music of Montage was a huge explosion at this event and so were the fireworks!!
Come on out and see us at a venue near you! Check our Coming Events page for performance dates. Bring a few friends and dance the evening away!
Don't forget, we're also on Facebook! You'll find some live videos of us from the Nixon Park gigs to a few past ones at recent performances in the area. Take Montage with you on your mobile device! Hope to see you at one of our "gigs"!! :)

Montage set a record at a recent Mezcalero performance on 5.19.18! Seven birthdays, count 'em - "7" birthdays were in the HOUSE celebrating with Montage at this gig! We also had a singles group visiting and definitely enjoying the music Montage was playing. Add to this some newbies that saw us for the first time and they promised to spread the word about us and most importantly: To Return!! WOW! Was that a night!!
Thank you for supporting us! Many of you have been talking us up at some local clubs to try and get Montage in there. We will be visiting a few of them in the area. Thanks for the suggestions and for the recommendations!
If you have some "danceable" tunes to suggest for Montage, write them down with your email address and either give these to a member at a band gig or through the email address on this site. We can't do every one of the suggestions, but we promise to discuss and pick from the favorites that you've suggested.

"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.
