THE BAND

People Choice Band

The Peoples Choices roots go back to the late 1960s. The original Peoples Choice was formed at the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point, and was made up of members from two other bands — The Chosen Few and The Horde. The band played into the early 70s. The group started as a six-piece, and later became a seven-piece group. The constant of the group was always having a horn section. The group had 13 different members during this time.

The next chapter of The Peoples Choice started in 2002 when several of the original members re-united, and with a couple of new faces, played at a Rock and Roll Reunion Concert in Central Wisconsin. Following this successful event, it was decided to keep playing. This newly formed band started playing under the name, TR and The Baker Boys. After being asked to play another Rock and Roll Reunion Concert in Stevens Point as The Peoples Choice, it was decided to change the name back permanently. Today, The Peoples Choice is a 9 piece group featuring a 4 member horn section. In addition, the group has a professional soundman. The Peoples Choice plays all types of music with their specialty being Classic Rock. Bookings have included weddings, fundraisers, private parties, corporate events, and clubs throughout Wisconsin.
