My band, Mandolin Whiskey, formed a little over a year ago. It’s still going through birthing pains but for the most part, has remained strong and viable in the local music scene.
I’ve been pluckin a guitar for the better part of my 56 years, and have played in a number of bands. But MW is closest to an actual “child of mine” than any other band I’ve been associated with. And this summer, 2012, is one that finds us performing most every weekend. I guess that means we’re doing something right, but it also means that I’m feeding off what our audience is experiencing at our gigs.
It’s no secret that musicians feed off energy emitted by live audiences, and that energy is like a drug, and I’m addicted to it.
Thanks to all the fans of our music! I do it for you!!
