Welcome fans! The month of June has ushered in a steady flow of exciting oppurtunities, surprises, and achievements for Fforte Adore. We completed our second album, Fforte Adore - Too Fast For Curve, featuring 13 original tracks, and our release at Milwaukee's Miramar Theatre was a huge success. After qualifying as a top finalist in WSMA's Launchpad Milwaukee Regional Battle of Bands, we advanced to the state final at Madison's Wisconsin Union Theater. The Competition drew over 50 of Wisconsin's most talented high school bands. After a great set we finished 2nd overall, congratulations to Arts & Crafts on their victory! But it did not end there- we are looking forward to scheduling our first professional recording session towards the end of the summer with Smart Studios in Madison. In addition, we booked 2 shows on the Grand Stand at this summer's Wisconsin State Fair and 1 show at next year's Sheboygan Brat Fest. We returned to Strawberry Fest for a second year and performed outside of Cedarburg's Java House, spreading our music to a new crowd. We also returned to Summerfest for a second year, and performed one in Potowatomi Pavilion stage. Video of our Summerfest set will be posted soon! Thanks for tuning in, if you have not gotten your hands on the new album, talk to any band member or shoot us an email for your coppy. We are looking forward to a great rest of the summer!
Fforte Adore today - We have two albums under our belt featuring over twenty original compositions. Our hit from the first disc, New Dash, has been aired several times on FM 102.1 Milwaukee. We have won several competitions, including the 2008 Brass Bell Battle of the Bands. Our second place finish at 2009 WSMA Launchpad State Competition has lead to many new oppurtunities, including our first proffesional recording session with Smart Studios. We have performed on stages at State Fair, Discovery World, Glendale Days, Strawberry Fest, Summerfest, and the Rave.
A Word from Fforte: As we have discovered like so many others before us, music is everywhere- love and loss, frustration and triumphs have inspired us to recreate memories of the past, perpetuate memorials in the present, and work towards our hopes and dreams for the future. We always look forward to sharing our unique style, and hope to expand our growing fan base as we move on through the summer of '09.
Take a look around and drop us a line or two. We look forward hearing from you.
