Voted 2017 and 2018's top Best Local Bands in Milwaukee (2017 Milwaukee A-List and 2018 Shepherd Express 'Best of Milwaukee'), Failure to Launch is a popular high-energy cover band that have been playing together for over 15 years. 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 50 years!
Starting from modest beginnings in our parent's basements, we've grown from playing our first show at Whitnall High School's Battle of the Bands to rocking out for huge crowds at Summerfest, Oktoberfest, and everything in between! We pride ourselves on a very diverse repertoire of songs, and make sure that there's something for everyone in the audience to dance to. You'll hear hits ranging from the 60's all the way up to current top 40. Many cover bands say that they play "everything", but FTL truly plays EVERYTHING: from A[dele] to [Jay]Z! We can't wait to put on an unforgettable show for you!
It is hard to describe how truly FANTASTIC Failure to Launch was at our wedding, but I am going to try. Music was very important to my husband and I so we really put a lot into deciding who to go with for our entertainment. First of all, they were very responsive - great at answering my 1001 questions. Made the process completely stress free. Their performance was absolutely OUTSTANDING. They had our crowd (ages 18-90) up and dancing the entire night and while everyone compliments your wedding, the compliments on our band have literally not stopped coming in. We lost count of how many times guests asked 'Where did you find this band??!!' We actually heard that more than "Congratulations on your wedding" :) Every single member had their own unique thing about them so when the song came around for them to flaunt it, they crushed it. I can't say enough about how they made our wedding that much more special. Absolutely phenomenal. If you're considering hiring this band, I suggest you book them immediately - you will most certainly not be disappointed. I would even go so far as to say if they were not available and live music is important to you - consider changing your wedding date. Not.Joking.

An absolute blast! The energy, the fun, the dancing.... Failure to Launch brought it all to our wedding reception! They were professional, personable, and detailed when planning the night. Flexible and adaptable- they took care of "wedding details" we didn't think about. Played music of all types to get all ages on the dance floor: non-stop dancing! Our guests complimented us on the music choice all night! We've seen FTL play in various venues and always have an absolute blast- they bring so much energy to a crowd! We are truly blessed to have had a wonderful, talented group of musicians help us celebrate our special day!

Failure to Launch played our wedding and we were blown away. The dance floor was the place to be all night long as everyone was energized by the enthusiasm of the band. FTL received many compliments from our guests and even the catering staff! They really exceeded all our expectations and we couldn't have been happier.

I can't thank FTL enough for playing at our fundraising gala. They rocked it, and we got TONS of compliments on the band! If you're considering anyone else, don't!
