Superior Acoustic Powerpop since 1991...The name Bockenplautz is a combination of Jonnie & Christopher's last names (Bock and Plautz), inspired by the Lowenbrau beer label. Remember Lowenbrau? We sure do. It also ties into our love of the Germanic beer brewing tradition here in Milwaukee, so that's cool. When asked, we usually describe our sound as somewhere between Guster, Tenacious D, Avett Brothers, and Matthew Sweet. Tight harmonies, acoustic instruments, energetic performances of melodic rock songs from every genre, and GUSTO are the key ingredients of every Bockenplautz show.
