About Failure to Launch

2020, 2019, 2018, 2017 BEST COVER/TRIBUTE BAND IN MILWAUKEE FINALISTS (Shepherd Express 'Best of Milwaukee' and Milwaukee A-List).

Failure to Launch is a popular high-energy cover band that have been rockin’ together for nearly two decades. You can expect to see a dynamic show of some of the most upbeat and danceable pop, rock, hip-hop, and country music of the past 60 years!

Made up of three incredibly talented and engaging vocalists, an impressive two-man percussion section, an animated keyboardist, gifted guitar and bass players, as well as a professional dj, FTL is unlike any other cover band you’ve seen! Starting from modest beginnings in their parent's basements, they've grown from playing their first show at Whitnall High School's Battle of the Bands to rocking out for huge crowds at Summerfest, Oktoberfest, and everything in between! They pride themselves on an extremely diverse repertoire of songs and mashups, and make sure that there's something for everyone in the audience to dance to- from Backstreet Boys to Beastie Boys :) Get ready to party as they perform hits ranging from the 60's all the way up to current top 40. They can't wait to put on an unforgettable show for you!

  • I have had so many people tell me that our wedding was the best wedding they had ever been too, mainly because Failure to Launch was so fun and interactive. Young, old, male, female, everyone was on the dance floor...even my 95-year old grandmother-in-law!
