The Uptown Savages are Milwaukee's premier retro/roots rockin' combo. The band, comprised of veteran Milwaukee musicians, performs greasy, rockin', Rhythm & Blues music, 1950s style. Think pulsating piano rhythms, powerful blues shouting, guitar playing that is both hot AND cool, wailing sax and one of the best rhythm sections in the Midwest.
The Uptown Savages have 2 full-length releases with plans to begin a third in 2012. The band also has released a 7â€ single and appears on compilations released by the Rockabilly Hall of Fame in Memphis and Milwaukee's own WMSE 91.7 fm. The Uptown Savages have received airplay and have charted on campus and community radio all over the world. They've performed at clubs, festivals and events from Chicago to Minneapolis including Milwaukee's Summerfest, Bastille Days and Riversplash, among many others. The group has also performed at both of Oneida Casino's Rockin' Fifties Festivals. Sharp dress combined with great musicianship and a fantastic repertoire, the Uptown Savages always bring a party to the stage.
