Ripp Winkler Rocks Peabody's

Halloween, lots of beer, and a
bar couldn’t have been a more perfect setting for Ripp Winkler to show Oshkosh that the true spirit of punk is indeed alive and kicking some major ass.

The band performed at Peabody’s Ale House Saturday with Papa Labas and the Bob Barcaloungers and Otis Coats opening the show. Ripp has always been known to pack a venue but this time they did it with a more unique audience.
Two fluffy man bunnies, the cast of “Anchorman”, Paris Hilton and Steve Martin in “The Jerk” were some of the more memorable costumes of the night. Let us not forget everybody’s favorite garden gnomes and Ripp Winkler bandmates; Gary, Stuart, and Dave.

Thank you, Ripp Winkler, Papa Labas and the Bob Barcaloungers, and Otis Coats for giving downtown Oshkosh one of the best performances over the Halloween weekend.

P.S. More Photos To Come-Check Back Soon and Often!

Gary is leaving Ripp

SHOW HIGHLIGHT: Gary Gose, drummer for Ripp Winkler, is unfortunately leaving the band due to nerve damage in his back.

Gary will be playing his last show with Ripp Winkler this Saturday, Oct. 29 at Peabody's Ale House on Main Street.

Come see Gary rock with the band that, according to Ripp bassist Stew Rossiter will be dressed as lawn gnomes in lieu of Halloween.

Hmm. What is better? Gary in a Speedo or Gary in a lawn gnome costume?

The start of it all

Sleepytime Gorilla Museum show @ the Algoma Club -October 8
This summer I mentioned to one of my friends that I wanted to start a 'zine about the music scene in Oshkosh. Well, that didn't happen because I was too busy and I know jack squat about print publishing.But as the summer days went on, I still yearned for an easier way to find out when and where I can attend some live shows.
Alas! came another idea.
Why not start a website dedicated to music in Oshkosh!!??!!

This is my proposal for this site:

1.Schedule of events in Oshkosh
2.Band list-description-link-public feedback as reviews
3.Band's show reviews-public feedback as reviews
4.Venue descriptions indluding stage. Reviews by musicians (to help other musicians)
and public feedback

Check back often as I will be making update to this site frequently.

The great thing about this site is that it will allow feedback from the public. So anyone viewing this site can see what other people,beside myself, think about a certain band,show or venue.

For any bands or artists looking for some shameless free self promotion-this is a place that you can turn to!!!

Thanks for checking this out!
