THE GROVELERS with THE MIGHTY DEERLICK

  • Milwaukee Boat Line (map)

The Grovelers are a four piece band based out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They deliver high energy original rock & roll with influences stemming from late 50’s rockabilly, early 60’s garage rock and early 80’s punk rock.

 The Mighty Deerlick has been rocking the people since its formation in La Crosse, Wisconsin in 1985, having outlived thousands of other bands, primarily due to not being organized enough to actually break up. Originally called The Slow Pedestrians, the band took on its current moniker upon moving to Milwaukee in 1988. Ever prolific, the band's prodigious output includes the full-length cassette "Beneath You" (1989), the four-song 7-inch single “Stag Nation” (1990), and the legendary holiday tour-de-force cassette "Bells to the Wall" (1991). Since 1991, they have written several additional songs. The Deerlick has shared the stage with Soul Asylum, the Replacements, the Violent Femmes, Alejandro Escovedo, 
True Believers, Willie Nile and innumerable local legends. In the second half of 2019, the band will release its debut full-length proper vinyl record album, possibly being the first band in the modern rock and roll era to do such a thing 34 years into its existence.
