Our latest album PLAY TIME is coming soon on May 2022! Preorder Now!
MILWAUKEE BLUES AT ITS BEST!
Jonny T-Bird & the MPs belt out a soulful mix of blues and originality. Fronted by Jon "Jonny T-Bird" Neuberger since 2009 while attending Milwaukee Area Technical College. "What does MPs stand for?" you may ask. The answer is quite simple. It stands for MARINATED PUPPETS. The name of a short-lived band featuring Jonny T-Bird and some MATC classmates formed a year prior to the band we know and love today. Many MPs and shows have come and gone, yet the fresh energy delivered by Jonny and the band has stayed. With four albums and a WAMI nomination, these guys will never disappoint if you get the chance to hear them live!

Like so many of us today, we at Jonny T-Bird & the MPs have been affected deeply by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Gigs have been canceled since mid March. Our last gig took place on Sunday March 15th at The Outpost in Sherwood, WI. We also lost a beloved member of the band, MARCUS "MG" GIBBONS after what started out as a flu. We've yet to receive an obituary on him, but we will keep you posted if we find anything.
We, like many musicians, have lost gigs since the beginning of March. With Wisconsin businesses slowly opening up again, we at Jonny T-Bird & the MPs have been slowly and safely getting back into playing live shows again. To view our upcoming gig schedule, click here.
