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, like many musicians, have lost gigs since the beginning of March.  With Wisconsin businesses slowly opening up again, we will soon be playing live again.  However, we're going to be taking it slow and safe.  To find out where you can catch us live, head on over to our shows page.  If you aren't ready go out to public in seeing the band yet, 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.
