Private Party in Michigan City, IN on 07/06/2013
"It's hard to believe that so much music could come out of two guys!?!?! Even my guests who are musicians said the same thing. Their song list is huge and they have a variety that pretty much anyone would be happy with. These guys are also VERY accommodating and flexible. We all had SO much fun and I will definitely have them back! Can't wait!!"

Birthday Party (Adults) in Racine, WI on 06/15/2013
"Second year and a row they out did themselves. They even learned a song that was requested from last year. I am booking them for my birthday party next year and for the company picnic I have already recommended them to some friends for there party.

Community Event in Sycamore, IL on 06/30/2012
"Yesterday's News was a perfect fit for our Museum's fundraiser, Rockin' for the Reptiles. Frank and Art's classic rock produced a fun and festive atmosphere. They sounded great and were the most accommodating and hassle-free group I have ever worked with. They set up quickly, began playing right on time, and broke down smoothly. Volume level was perfect—it was loud enough to set the mood, but did not overpower. I would recommend Yesterday’s News to anyone looking for a big sound for a very reasonable rate."
