About Us

The Screamin' Cucumbers (Cukes) are a diverse Milwaukee area cover band formed in 2004 and have played just about every Milwaukee venue including Summerfest and State Fair. The Cukes have even taken their show on the road internationally and performed outside the US. The set list consists primarily of great danceable pop, rock and country tunes with a bit of an emphasis on the 80's. If it's upbeat, danceable, and fun it's probably on the set list.
