Welcome to Bill Sargent Bands

Bill Sargent Bands exists for one simple reason; I have a passion for music and excellence.

At an early age I became a professional drummer and experienced the satisfaction that comes from making people happy.

As a teenager, I was fortunate to play with some of the most famous musicians on the planet and learned the challenge and satisfaction that comes from the pursuit of excellence.

Soon after moving to Milwaukee, I was employed by all the best that Milwaukee had to offer. For the most part, I found the bands lacking in what I had become accustomed to on a national level. It was, many times, unfulfilling.

The old saying “If you want something done right, do it yourself” became a reality for me. I soon for that only way I was going to get satisfaction out of life in Wisconsin was to form my own bands.

That’s why Bill Sargent Bands was started and why it is here for you today better than ever before; because I love great music and love doing it with excellence with awesome musicians; making people happy.

The bottom line is this isn’t something I just do, this is who I am.

I MAY NOT BE YOUR GUY!

I may not be a good fit for you.

If having excellent music at your event is not a priority for you; if one band or DJ is just as good as another for you, I am not your guy. If you need a laser light show have a great time, I am not your guy. If you’re either of these, you should look elsewhere.

HOWEVER, if excellent music is a priority for you, if you want a classy event, if quality and function is important, if you want your clientele, your friends and their families to rave about the awesome event you put together, if you want everybody to have an excellent time, enjoy themselves and remember it for years to come, then YOU are the one I want to work for. I AM YOUR GUY.
