Modern Day Romeos

THE BAND

Every weekend for the past decade, Modern Day Romeos has remained THE quintessential party band. Based out of Chicago’s Suburbs, its six members have come together from different musical backgrounds to create the most fun and high-energy show you can experience. MDR continues to play before impressive crowds and remains a top drawing show due to its massive online presence. In 2012 they proudly received the largest corporate sponsorship of any local band through Coors Light. MDR has shared the stage with Vince Neil, Slaughter, Jimmy Van Zant, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Lucky Boys Confusion, and countless other local bands. MDR has been endorsed and praised by many in the media including: 95.1 WIIL Rock, STAR 105.5, 102.3 WXLC & 1220 WKRS along with countless newspaper and magazine publications.

THE SONGS

MDR’s musical spectrum includes motown classics, classic rock jams, 80’s favs, 90’s gems, and the tops of pop, dance and rock of the 2000’s. We alter most of the songs with our own style, and add a lot of comedy and medleys to make your favorite songs new to you again. Our fan base ranges from 21 to 61 on a regular basis and we want to make sure we have something for everyone. Our challenge this year is to add even more original songs to iTunes.

THE EXPERIENCE

Put on your partici-pants!! MDR strives to be the most entertaining band you will see. Jim is often in the crowd, separating and assigning singing parts and leading “bad dancing” contests, while Justin displays his majestic cowbell moves. Even if you attend by yourself, we will make sure that you meet the people next to you and high five and cheers the rest. We don’t want you to come see a show, we want you to be a part of it!!!
