Singer/songwriter Mia Montenegro has an energy on stage so contagious that the audience can't help but get involved. Whether delivering another jaw-dropping rendition of a cover tune, or pouring her heart into one of her own many originals, she always leaves her audience wanting more.

Mia has been a prominent figure at the forefront of the Wisconsin music scene for over fifteen years, and whether she's playing in a trio, duo, or as a solo act, her energy and passion for the music has never faded.

Her trio, "Suburban Gypsies" has received WAMI nominations (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) for awards in the "Best Folk-Rock Group" category and Mia has also been nominated for "Best Female Vocalist."

As both a solo artist and in the many configurations of bands she has played in, Mia has played all of the major Wisconsin music festivals such as Summerfest, Wisconsin State Fair, Bastille Days, Waukesha County Fair, Waukesha's Riverfest, Zoo A La Carte, Harley Fest, and Maritime Days, among others. Her music career has taken her all over the Midwest, playing extensively throughout Wisconsin, as well as Illinois, Minnesota (including several trips to the Canadian border), Michigan, Iowa and South Dakota.

Mia's long-awaited solo CD, "Somewhere In Between" is available for purchase directly from her website - www.miamontenegro.com - just click on the MERCHANDISE link. Digital downloads from the entire CD can also be found at such popular sites as Music Match, Napster, Apple iTunes, Buy Music, AOL's MusicNet, and MSN Music along with many other of the most popular digital download sites. Direct links are not included here because many of those sites require either some sort of subscription or a download of their program or player - but if you already download from those sites, then you're good to go, check 'em out!

The song "I Wanna Go South," from that CD received a Certificate Of Appreciation In Songwriting from Billboard Magazine. That same song was also chosen for a compilation CD, "Oasis Rock & Roots:Volume 6," that featured a number of prominent acoustic/alternative rock artists from all across the country.

Don't forget to check out the calendar and make sure to bring some friends out for an evening of fantastic live music with Mia Montenegro - whichever configuration she's playing in!
