Here are your picks for Best Rock Band.

1. The Remainders

The Remainders repeat as the Best Rock Band in La Crosse County, beating out Monkey Wrench and TUGG in a close race for the second year in a row. A high school reunion band that just kept going, The Remainders have been one of the area’s biggest draws for the last decade, specializing in classic and modern rock. Over the years they’ve opened for the likes of REO Speedwagon, Styx, Huey Lewis & the News, the Steve Miller Band, and Foreigner, just to name a few. Their motto, “Fun, philanthropic, high energy midlife crisis in action,” sums it up perfectly, and you can expect to see The Remainders at any number of community-focused events throughout the year.
