      Substitute (Who tribute), Shattered (Rolling Stones tribute)

      With a look and sound that captures The Who at the height of their 70s peak, Substitute plays the songs that have become part of rock legend. From the hits (Pinball Wizard, Who Are You and Won't Get Fooled Again) to lesser-known classics (The Seeker, Bargain and The Real Me), Substitute is becoming a regular at some of the Midwest's most prestigious venues and festivals!

      The Milwaukee-based band was formed by Wisconsin by-way-of Seattle bassist Tom Branigan in 2005, when he found three people who shared his love of Who music and could faithfully replicate the playing styles of its four original members. Featuring veteran musicians Andy Potocic on guitar, Andy Pagel on drums, vocalist Dave Stevens and Branigan, the result is a no-frills sonic attack that brings back the very best of the 60s and 70s.

      Aaron Heffernan - Vocals and Harmonica
      Aaron Heffernan ("Milwaukee Mick") is no stranger to the Rolling Stones' material. For over a decade he's gone to Denmark once a year to prance about the rock stages of Copenhagen. Aaron pours every ounce he's got into Shattered's set list, and insists on "leavin' 'em sweatin'" every time.

      Johnny Majdalani - Guitar
      Yet another member with an international music background. After playing in college in a group called Blanket, Johnny packed up and moved to England where he founded Laughing Sam's Dice, a group influenced by Free, the Faces and Thin Lizzy. He also performed in an acoustic duo for a while in London.

      Dave Vegafria - Bass, Background Vocals
      A veteran of the Milwaukee rock scene, Dave's credits include Compound Red, Koala, the Nerve Twins and Bondo Camaro. Dave is the newest member of Shattered, and looks more like Sid Vicious than enybody else in the band.

      Kurt Weber - Drums
      The voice of reason at rehearsal, Kurt has played and/or recorded with the Rules, the Texas Trailer Trash, Fat Ass Barbie, the Plums, the King Comets, the Tele's and John Steffes. Kurt is ALWAYS in the pocket, and yes, he does that weird little Charlie Watts thing with the high-hat.

      Chris Conrad -- Guitar
      Called "iron-fisted, pigheaded and grossly incompetent", Chris has appeared on over 90 recordings as a multi-instrumentalist, produced a half-dozen albums for other bands, has appeared as a musical guest on television and radio, and produced the opening song for the cult regional indie flick, "The Retarded Way," scheduled for deput at Sundance in January. Chris has made a study of the particular guitar tunings that Keith Richards uses, helping further separate Shattered from other tribute acts.

      "Rodeo" Rob Pfeiffer - Keys
      The final piece of the puzzle, Rob's credits would take up so much bandwidth that their listing would likely crash a Cray CX1. The perfect balance of talent, creativity and levity, Rob is our hero. Worship him.
