Their hair may be grayer and the musicians backing them may have changed, but Sam Llanas and Kurt Neumann remain the heart and soul of The BoDeans. With uncanny harmonies and a dynamic electric/acoustic-guitar tandem, the duo with Waukesha roots has survived record-label politics, an ugly management lawsuit and industry indifference. And Friday night at the sold-out Potawatomi Bingo Casino’s Northern Lights Theater—joined by keyboardist Bukka Allen, bassist Eric Holden and drummer Noah Levy—they proved that age and time have only strengthened them.

Left for dead a decade ago, the progressive-metal band Queensryche has spent the ensuing years reinventing itself. Post-grunge records, a covers disc and a sequel to 1988’s seminal concept album Operation: Mindcrime all entered the fray, as the arena stalwarts became accustomed to smaller . . .

Tonight @ Potawatomi Bingo Casino - 9:00 PM

As studio musicians on nearly all of Motown's seminal psychedelic soul and R&B records of the ’60s, The Funk Brothers claim to have “played on more number one records than The Beatles, Elvis, The Rolling Stones, and The Beach Boys combined." A rotating cast of surviving members has toured under the . . .

Queensryche were never the most popular of the 1980s hair-metal bands, but they emerged from the heyday of heavy metal with a prestige many of their contemporaries lost (or never had in the first place), thanks to their political, prog-metal ambitions. In . . .
