hey, i'm also in a band of the same area, We're called damascus, and we recently participated in a competition and met a lot of cool area bands. i attached a url for the competition page. The madison regional section is the locals around walworth county. You could google or look for the listed bands on Facebook, and try to contact some of them! specifically i would try "connor curlis band", and "wakin the neighbors" since i recall them somewhat fitting your listed style. Hope i helped! here's the page.
