MGC Music 2017

A Band of Gamers is back for our third year at Midwest Gaming Classic hosting the MGC Music Stage. When we added live music to Midwest Gaming Classic in 2015, we wanted to include some of best local bands played on our podcast. Fortunately we were able to accomplish that with bands like Sugar Stems, Evacuate the Earth, The Bang Bang and Atomic Spins to name just a few.

We learned a lot along the way, and excuse me because this is probably quite obvious looking back now, but the video game inspired bands really grabbed the attention of the crowd.

Therefore this year we've put a greater emphasis on video game music. Thankfully there are some amazing and talented video game cover bands in the Milwaukee area. Surprising how many actually. We're also still including a couple of the best non-video game bands played previously on the podcast. Couldn't be more proud of the gig we put together for this upcoming Midwest Gaming Classic and it may just be our best year yet.
