Pin Ups, Hot Rods, Beers and Bands.    Kochanski's Polish Pile Up has it all, and in 2018, it also has R. Mutt.    We have played here for Andy a bunch of times and always have a blast.    Getting asked to play the Polish Pile Up is the icing on the cake.

So, whether you are a fan of fast cars, pin up girls, beer, pierogies, R. Mutt, or just spending a Saturday hanging out in Milwaukee, come on out to Milwaukee's best beer garden and join in the fun.



Kochanski's Concertina Bar is aVintage old-school venue with lots of Polish & German beers on tap, plus live polka & other music located at 1920 S 37th St, Milwaukee, WI 53215

Thirty Year Anniversary Spectacular: Don't Call it a Comeback...

...we've been here for years.   In truth, some of us have come and gone over the years, but this May marks the 30th anniversary of R. Mutt's birth.  We are pulling out all the stops with full up invitations to everyone who has ever played with R. Mutt going back to 1988.   Club Garibaldi's in Milwaukee's Bayview neighborhood will host as we run through 30 years of songs and line ups.   Come on out and flashback to a time when bad decisions were just part of your weekend plan.

(Don't) Stop the Presses!

A printing plate fitted to a cylinder of a rotary press during printing at Thomson Newspapers London Office circa 1950.

The reviews are in, and we could not be more humbled.  (Well, I suppose we could skip the part where we repost our favorite compliments...)  2017 was a great year for R. Mutt.  The reaction to our new record, The Dash, has been stellar, local support from both WMSE and 88Nine in spinning our songs has introduced us to new fans, and we shared stages with great bands like Stereoactive, The Dexateens, The Gyps and dada.

If you have not seen any of the reviews of the record, most of them are linked below.   You can also hit our PRESS page to see reviews of our past records. 

We are looking forward to another great year and hope to see you out in MKE or Chicago.   Say "Hi."  We might buy you a beer.

--------------------------

"From start to finish The Dash is a solid record that is a blast to listen to."

"Wafts of Springsteen and Rush will hit you like a blast furnace"

"Screaming roars of vocals combine with raucous guitar and thumping that sucker down drums to provide music that begs for answers to many fundamental questions." 

"...the band locks down into a pummeling rock groove that one could equally equate to The Stones and the better glam rock bands of the seventies and even, dare we say it, KISS." 

"Rare is the musical classicist who can inhabit a genre without coming off as a revivalist. On their fifth full-length album, The Dash, Milwaukee’s R. Mutt achieves that sort of classicism when it comes to classic rock."

Innisfree/R.Mutt reunion!


Saturday, April 28th, 1990 was the last time R.Mutt and Innisfree shared a stage.   October 2017 we are going to do it all over again.   Andy Kochanski has rolled out the red carpet for us and we are excited to again share the stage with some of our good buddies from the old college days.  Unofficial master of ceremonies, Tim Nau, has taken a break from his full time social media job to reunite a classic Innisfree line up, including Brian Kelly (vocal) Dave Moser and Colin Watts (guitars), and Peter Carr (drums.)

Come on out to relive your favorite black out.   We may have some old school Mutt cassettes to give away and maybe some Avalanche t-shirts for sale.

Doors at 7:00, bands will start about 9:00pm.    Kochanski's is a quick Uber away at 1920 South 37th Street, Milwaukee.

Saturday, May 20th: Linneman's Riverwest Inn Fight Nite!


Jim Linneman has built a real Milwaukee institution.   A great room, with a proper stage, and great sound that hosts local and regional performers on the steady.  We are super excited to be returning to Linneman's Riverwest Inn for our Milwaukee Vinyl release party for our new record, The Dash.

Choosing who to split the bill with was as easy as a phone call.  It's a rematch of the March 2012, epic throw down between the fresh, young upstarts, Stereoactive and the grizzled old men of R. Mutt.  Punches were thrown, lines were crossed, blood was drawn.   We expect more of the same at this match.
