The Dots

The Dots are a three-piece Rock n Roll band based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Their lineup consists of guitarist Ann Rakowiecki, singer and bassist Rhonda Lucas & drummer/vocalist Nikki Beckman.

The story of The Dots began in 2005, with a random yet fateful ad placed in a Southeastern Wisconsin music magazine by two friends, operatically trained singer Rhonda Lucas and self-taught guitarist and songwriter Ann Rakowiecki. The two were interested in forming an all-female rock band, but were in need of a drummer. Their search came to an abrupt end when the ad was answered by Nikki Beckman, a local drummer who happened to live only a few miles from Rhonda and Ann, despite the two being strangers previously. The chemistry between the three quickly became apparent, and after spending a little bit of time hanging out, they quickly realized they had a unique chemistry as friends.

A short time later, they began to rehearse as a band. The trio continued to hone their skills as a group for more than a year before booking their first gig. The group started by covering songs by artists they were fans of, and slowly began to incorporate original songs. The trio is currently working on their debut album and the first project by The Dots is scheduled for release in Spring of 2017. The release of the album will be followed by a string of shows to support the album's release.

In a little more than a decade as a band, The Dots have built a strong reputation for themselves as a fun, high energy all-female rock band. The Dots have been featured as part of the SheRocks Wisconsin concert series, as part of the local talent lineup of Pridefest Milwaukee, Taste of Wisconsin Festival and have also performed on stage at well-known Milwaukee venues Shank Hall & The Up & Under, in addition to numerous venues across the Midwest
