Description
Taking the Milwaukee music scene by storm, the members of Redeye have toured the Midwest opening for major country acts for the past several years, garnering a large base of loyal fans. Redeye strikes a compelling mix between the old and the new, with a set list of both contemporary and classic hits from artists like Johnny Cash,  Brad Paisley, Chris Young, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Eric Church. Unpredictable, energetic, and ferocious: there is never a dull moment when Redeye takes the stage.Redeye's intense yet refined sound comes from the experienced musicianship of its members.Members George (drums), David (keyboard), and Mitch (guitar) have been playing music together for more than half a decade, and each has over ten years of experience playing their respective instruments. They are all classically trained and have been involved in various blues, jazz, and alternative rock projects. Erik (guitar and vocals) has been playing  in the Milwaukee country music scene for nearly a decade. His distinguished voice rounds out the band's sound perfectly with a sound heavily reminiscent of old style country. Will (vocals), brings his own unique sense of vocal style to the band, providing both powerful lead performances and tasteful harmonies.This free event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff, Wisconsin Union members and their guests. Anyone can become a Union member.
