About Us

Hold’em High is a duo from the Milwaukee area. The first thing you’ll probably notice when you see them is their enormous sound even though there’s just two people on stage. Hold’em High offers a full band experience in the convenience of a duo which means you get to enjoy the great energy of a live band at any size venue you see them. Just one of the many things that makes this live act a unique treat to the Southeastern Wisconsin scene.

Something else that makes them unique is their energy. Hold’em High is focused on two things: Having some drinks and having a good time! It’s built right into the name!

Zakk Daniel
Acoustic Guitar/Vocals

Zakk has been in Milwaukee’s music scene for a long time and has been mostly known for his solo performances. Zakk has a soulful style of playing but can also be upbeat and edgy in his performance. He also tends to say some rather hilarious things on the mic from time to time…

Alex is a wizard on the electric guitar. From silky smooth country solo’s to blazing fast rock solo’s, he can play just about anything you ask him to do. He also steps up to the mic giving more of bluesy raw vocal that works so well with the rock hits you love to sing…
