Hey.......that is US!!!
Ken has been singing and performing in front of live audiences since he was 11. Yes, you heard right, 11! Whether singing in stage productions, fronting original rock bands or playing acoustic guitar in a folk trio cover band, playing live music has been part of Ken's life for decades. Being invited to join 11 One Louder is another fun and exciting step on the musical journey!
Life deserves to be lived at 11!!
Donna has been singing since before she could walk. One of seven children all with musical talent, she began singing professionally when she was a teenager. She graduated from the Milwaukee High School of the Arts and thereafter spent two summers touring with the Kids From Wisconsin. She has been a singer/performer in the Milwaukee area for many years. After taking some time away from music with her family, she began to feel the pull to return to the stage, and she is super excited to bring her powerful high energy vocals to 11. One Louder.
MC went to high school with both Ken and Loppy (although those dudes are waaaaaaaaayyyyyyy older than him) and that opened the door to this venture. MC loves music. He's tried most anything he could get his hands on and play a little bit of everything. He likes most flavors. Jazz, classical, cherry, electronic, grape, classic rock, hard rock, and lemon lime. He's been playing around southeast Wisconsin for more than 20 years and has been lucky to have played with some great people on some the best stages. MC was honored to receive the WAMI Award for Best Keyboardist in 2018. He has been a jack of many and master of none. "I can't wait to crank it up and see what happens next. It's going to get louder!"
Hailing from the city of Racine, WI Michael Inloes has spent the majority of his life in the Southeastern Wisconsin music scene. Playing since he was 9 years old in various classic rock groups around the area, Michael is eager to take his experience “one louder”. Michael also has extensive knowledge and experience with all things audio, working in both live and studio applications; not to mention an assortment of cool guitars, impressive knowledge of Star Wars, and an unhealthy LEGO collection. Michael is very excited to take it up to 11!
Having been around the music scene all over Wisconsin for the last 20 years, if you name a genre of music or a style of band, chances are Rocky has played in that band. Except anything Zydeco. After a very long weekend in New Orleans that time back in the 90's....well lets just say it is his best interest NOT to play that style anymore....plus we are not sure we could pool together enough bail money to get him out. Between he and Ken it can get kinda expensive. Anywho.....it's time to RAWK! "I am very much looking forward to taking the stage with these cats and making music.....and doing it One Louder!!"
Loppy. We found him in a van, down by the river. No really, we think he was living in a van. He bangs on things and make noises. Some people call that drumming. He has spent the last 30 years playing all over the Midwest with some wonderful people. He doesn't really have a style, doesn't really know what he is doing, cant dunk a basketball on a 6 foot rim, and only has 7 hairs on his head, but for some reason we still keep him around. And let him him bang on stuff......ONE LOUDER.....(Maybe we need to get our heads examined!)
