COLD SODA CLUB
We’re the Cold Soda Club from Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

This is what gives us the unique variety of covers in our set. We also enjoy bringing our personalities to the stage so people can really see who we are and how poor our dance moves are. Our favorite places we’ve displayed these moves have been at Summerfest, the nationwide Levitt Amp Series, and the WIXX Back to School Show.

The players come from Wisconsin’s elite ensembles that include: The Groove Hogs, Separate Ways and Short Stuff (2017 WAMI Hall of Fame inductee). A fresh and powerful sound that is familiar and fun.

SIDESHOW is directly affiliated with the Wisconsin Fox Valley Rock N’ Roll band, Sonic Circus – being made up of 3 of that band’s members: Rico Jaeger / Vocalist, Drummer & Guitarist, Johnny Palecek / Keyboardist, Bassist & Vocalist and Tony Navis / Drummer, Keyboardist and Vocalist. Together, this diverse trio brings with it decades of stage entertainment experience, with all 3 members singing and playing multiple instruments. But the real thing that sets SIDESHOW apart from the other “downsized” acts out there is that they are not an acoustic show – they are simply a smaller version of the full Sonic Circus band. Still well-lit with a big sound and tons of energetic classic and current rock, they come to PLAY! But they can fit into smaller venues, set up in less time and attain a higher level of musical diversity due to their small lineup. What does this mean for the buyer? 1) An approachable fee, and 2) the ability to run a live rock band in a setting that may not be particularly conducive to hosting a larger act. But make no mistake about it: while SIDESHOW may be smaller in production and man power, they are nonetheless still very much a REAL ROCK BAND. Ranging in everything from REO to BonJovi to The Violent Femmes, they will consistently transition your toe-tapping barstool patrons into dance floor party people in no time with their dance / party-oriented playlist! Add to that a half-cup of drinking games, a dash of the occasional “guest vocalist” and liberally-pepper the night with witty banter and audience participation, and you have a winning recipe for a very fun & memorable evening for your clientele’!
Put your club in direct competition with the venues running live entertainment. And do so affordably, easily and fun …with SIDESHOW!
