Attuned Soulutions Milwaukee

By Aaron S. Robertson

If you're looking for a guitarist for your Milwaukee -area wedding, cocktail hour, farmer's market, festival, private party, or other event in need of music and entertainment, I highly recommend Mike Guzman of Attuned Soulutions.

I've known Mike for quite a few years now. We are friends and former co-workers. I always knew he played guitar, and I had the pleasure of hiring him for the first time to perform at an outdoor event in Hales Corners called "Highway to Hales" back in September 2018. Wow! Mike did an awesome job. He provided a diverse repertoire of styles and genres, ranging from folk and blues to popular covers from classic rock and oldies. I highly recommend him for anyone looking to further enhance their event. Mike is very friendly and professional, easy to work with, and he really knows his material. I hope to work with him again real soon!

An open letter to Hales Corners

An open letter to the Hales Corners community regarding Highway to Hales

September 27, 2018

For those of you who participated in the Highway to Hales event this past Saturday, September 22, in any way – whether your business or organization had a booth or display, or your business in the shopping center came up with a deal of some sort to entice consumers, or you donated money to help defray our costs, or you merely came on out to see what it was all about – we cannot thank you enough. The feedback we have heard has been overwhelmingly positive and encouraging, with many calling for an annual event. We are humbled and filled with gratitude.

It took a lot of minds, talent, and cooperation to make this event happen, and it was really the small things behind the scenes that compounded to make the event as great as it was. It was Re/Max Realty 100 allowing us to plug into their power source in the parking lot if we needed it. It was Emanuel Church / Park’s Edge Preschool loaning us folding chairs to accommodate the Whitnall High School Jazz Band at the last minute. It was the Village of Hales Corners waiving the fee for a seller’s permit and covering the costs for renting a couple of generators, and it was also a long-time member of the Hales Corners Lions Club running home to get his own generator when we ran into some unforeseen challenges accommodating our main music act, Boondock Boogie. It was Prime Printing & Signs loaning us display stands for our sponsor signage, and it was multiple Chamber members helping with parking, vendor setup, and other logistics the day of the event – members like Don Paulus of Syn-City Service and Richard Erpelding. But while the event was ultimately built on all these small pieces coming together in harmony, we must also acknowledge here our sponsors:

Hales Corners Chamber of Commerce
Village of Hales Corners
Outlook Management Group
Festival Foods
Whitnall Park Rotary Club
Hales Corners Lions Club
Jim Gilboy
Colleen Resendiz – Benefit Realty
Richard Erpelding
Aaron S. Robertson

Without the cooperation and generosity of these sponsors, this event simply could not happen.

While the event was filled with fun and laughter on a beautiful sunny day, though, we hope that the purpose of the event continues to resonate well into the future – that our business community really needs our continued support and patronage through the road construction. These are immensely challenging times right now for Hales Corners businesses, both large and small, family-owned and corporate. The business base does so much for our community, and if there was ever really a pressing time to increase our level of attention and support in turn, this is it. Thank you again for helping to make Highway to Hales a fun and successful event, and stay tuned for additional opportunities as we continue to cultivate ideas to further support our local business base through the construction!

All the Best,

Highway to Hales on 9/22/18

“Highway to Hales: A Showcase of Hales Corners” to be Held on September 22, 2018

Celebration meant to raise awareness for the local business base, serve as a reminder that continued support and patronage is critical during road construction.

Hales Corners, Wisconsin – August 22, 2018 – The Hales Corners Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Village of Hales Corners and numerous community service organizations and individual businesses, presents a one-day event named, “Highway to Hales: A Showcase of Hales Corners,” to take place on Saturday, September 22, 2018, from 10am-2pm in the parking lot of the future Festival Foods on Hwy. 100.

“Highway to Hales” will bring a variety of area businesses and vendors, community groups, food, and entertainment to the site of the former K-Mart store at 5600 S. 108th Street, for the purposes of both celebrating the community and what it has to offer, as well as to bring much needed attention to the fact that businesses, particularly those along Hwy. 100, are feeling the impact during the road reconstruction project.

“Supporting our local business base is always important, but particularly at a moment like this, where you have a major highway construction project going on that’s severely impacting the ability of consistent economic activity to take place. We hope this event shows everyone just how valuable their continued support of our local businesses really is. It’s priceless,” said Mike Clavette of Clavette Insurance Agency and current president of the Hales Corners Chamber of Commerce.

Village president Dan Besson could not agree more with Clavette’s remarks. “These businesses mean so much to our community, in so many ways. They provide employment. They sponsor youth sports teams and support local service organizations. They provide critical tax base. We can go on and on. We all have an obligation to do what we can to show our appreciation and pay it forward,” he said.

James Huot, branch manager of Tri City National Bank and currently vice president of the Chamber, added, “It’s a day of coming together as community, raising awareness, and having fun. It’s all hands on deck, and we’re all in this together for Hales Corners. Come join us.”

For your safety, health, well-being, and quite frankly, your life, as well as the safety, health, well-being, and quite frankly, lives of others, we strongly encourage you to *not* try any of the following.  

1) The hot water challenge

2) The Tide Pod challenge

3) Calling 911 on black people and even entire black families going about their daily business - you know, like having dinner at Subway, or meeting a business partner at Starbucks, or eating lunch while on break at a student job on campus, or giving the cashier a coupon that the cashier hasn't seen before, or grilling on a beautiful sunny afternoon at a park on the lake, or trying to get into their own vehicle but encountering problems with their key or remote control, or shopping while pregnant with twins and accusing her of trying to walk out of the store with stolen merchandise under her shirt.

4) The condom snorting challenge

5) Leaving your baby to fry in the car

6) Calling the police on hardworking entrepreneurial youngsters selling lemonade, water, or homemade cookies without a permit; or mowing lawns for pay- usually black, but not always (see item # 3)

7) Attempting to wash and then reuse condoms, prompting the CDC to weigh in with a safety advisory

8) Daring the police to send you into the afterlife by constantly refusing orders and/or running away while armed

9) Parking in disabled parking spots without a permit, usually leading to confrontation, and in some cases, death

10) Going apeshit on a commercial airline flight, like thinking you're entitled to sit in business class on an economy ticket, or demanding more beer after being cut off because you're already drunk and disorderly

11) Taking selfies to the point where you are not aware of your surroundings and literally fall off a cliff and die

12) Throwing a $60,000 wedding and then demanding $1,500 from each of your guests to pay for it because you only have $15,000 of your own money to put toward it

13) Visiting MilwaukeeBusinessOpportunities.com for exclusive interviews, valuable business advice and resources, fun things to do around the metro-Milwaukee area, occasional click bait like this post, and a whole lot more!
