The Rave/Eagles Ballroom is a beautiful room and the perfect venue for such a big killer show. It was hot outside in the humid Wisconsin weather but even hotter inside this huge ballroom. Everyone was packed like sardines to see a band all the way from Canada called Theory Of A Deadman. If you’ve ever listened to music before, there’s a good chance you know this iconic band!
Theory Of A Deadman is entertaining live but every band deserves an amazing band to get the crowd hyped before they take the stage. Theory Of A Deadman are lucky enough to have Wilson, a 6 piece band from Michigan to do just that for them. Wilson is such a high energy comedic band. Formed in 2010 Wilson has been touring and taking names ever since. Wilson fans were super ecstatic to hear some new tunes like “Dumptruck” and “Like A Baller” off their new and upcoming album “Tasty Nasty.” 2018 is in for a treat because “Tasty Nasty” is set to be released in just a few short weeks on August 24th! It has been some time since Wilson has released a full album. All night it was very apparent that the crowd had an awesome time jumping and clapping along to Wilson and left a lasting remark on many new and old fans!
Now of course, the big headliners of the night, 4 piece band Theory Of A Deadman! Vocalist Tyler Connolly is a man of many talents. Not only did he blow the crowd away with his amazing vocal capabilities but also his flawless ability to play the piano beautifully. Theory Of A Deadman of course had to play some legendary fan favorite songs.
Fans were in the crowd singing at the top of their lungs to songs like “Straight Jacket,” “Bitch Came Back,” “Echoes,” “Bad Girlfriend,” “Hate My Life,” and way more. All these phenomenal songs are off three great albums titled “Scars And Souvenirs” from all the way back in 2008, “Wake Up Call” released in 2017 and 2011 album “The Truth Is..” aside from Theory Of A Deadman slating all their famous songs, drummer Joe Dandeneau had his time to shine when he laid out a killer drum solo and had the crowds attention the entire time. Theory Of A Deadman did everything they could to ensure everyone got the full experience of their show. From the crowd high fives, to the crowd interaction, to the energy on stage TOADM was a pleasure to witness on stage at The Rave/Eagles Ballroom.
The Wake Up Summer 2018 Tour has been on fire this hot summer. Everyone should go do themselves and a friend a favor and go catch this tour package before it is over! It’s a great chance to test your vocal skills singing along to each and every Theory Of A Deadman song!
