'Humbling’ | Rockonsin finalist to perform at Midwest Firefest

What We Once Had
Rockonsin June 2022

What We Once Had were selected as one of the top ten finalists in the statewide garage-band competition Rockonsin the past three years.

For his band’s first show, bassist Gray Frandy had picked up the instrument for the first time just hours before going on stage.

And now, that band, a Lake Mills punk group called What We Once Had, has played in Milwaukee’s Summerfest for three consecutive years. The late June performance was the reward for being among 10 finalists at Rockonsin, a statewide garageband competition for middle and high school musicians that form a group outside of school.
