Willy Porter Band

Celebrating the Silver Anniversary of the 'Dog Eared Dream' Album

Saturday, September 29


7pm Doors //

8pm Show

» RSVP on Facebook
Milwaukee-based guitarist and producer Willy Porter brings fans the Silver Anniversary of his 1993 release Dog Eared Dream with this celebration show. Porter reunites with the original members of the Willy Porter Band including Dave Adler, Biff Blumfumgagnge, and John Calarco. Bassist Ethan Bender joins the band for this show. 

Produced by Mike Hoffmann and recorded at Milwaukee’s Joe’s Place, Dog Eared Dream helped establish Porter’s unique brand of acoustic guitar-based music on the international stage. Dog Eared Dream featured the break-out radio hits “Angry Words” and “Rita” as well as fan favorites “Jesus on the Grille” and “Flying.”
 
 Original band member and longtime music collaborator with Porter, bassist Steve Kleiber passed away in 2014, which has lead to the creation of the Steve Kleiber Memorial Scholarship Fund (SKMSF). The fund provides funding for financially underprivileged high school students who show incredible music promise and wish to continue their studies. The SKMSF has partnered with the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music and awarded their first scholarship in 2017. A portion of the proceeds of this show will go towards these ongoing scholarship efforts.

Ticket purchasers will receive a free download of the Dog Eared Dream Silver Anniversary Edition including additional un-released material. The album will also be re-released on vinyl and CD.

There are several ticket resellers and secondary markets selling tickets to our events. Ticket resellers often try to mimic our website to appear legitimate. However, the ONLY official website for The Pabst Theater Group venues is www.pabsttheater.org. Please note: we set up occasional offers through sites including, but not limited to: Groupon, Goldstar, official artist websites and their official fan clubs. If you have any questions regarding the legitimacy of a secondary outlet selling tickets to our shows, please call our box office directly at 414-286-3205.

If you are interested in an event that has already sold out, please sign up to become an eMember and follow us on social media - we will announce any releases through those channels. Do not buy from a third party or ticket scalping company.

Purchasing tickets from any other seller or website runs a very high risk of receiving fraudulent and/or invalid tickets.
