Jonny T-Bird & the MPs belt out a soulful mix of blues and originality. The MPs stands for MARINATED PUPPETS, which was the name of a band that a few of its members were a part of before they gave birth to this Milwaukee combo.  The band’s founding members met while they were studying music at Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC).   Since 2009, their performances included some of southeastern Wisconsin's well-known venues and festivals (Summerfest, State Fair, Miramar Theatre, Cactus Club, Up & Under, The Domes, etc.). With three albums and a WAMI nomination, these guys will never disappoint if you get the chance to hear them live!

Like so many of us today, we at Jonny T-Bird & the MPs have been affected deeply by the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic.  Gigs have been canceled since mid March.  Our last gig took place on Sunday March 15th at The Outpost in Sherwood, WI.  We also lost a beloved member of the band, MARCUS "MG" GIBBONS after what started out as a flu.  We've yet to receive an obituary on him, but we will keep you posted if we find anything.

We're uncertain on when it will be safe for the band to continue working again, but we sure as hell do miss playing for the people.  You can still support us during this pandemic.  You can purchase any of our merchandise from our store page.  We're also accepting virtual tips @  And on April 7th, we have released a new original song to be expected on our upcoming album.  Since it is both Jonny T-Bird and Cadillac Craig's birthday, we figured why not?  BIRTHDAY BLUES.
