My Girl My Whiskey & Me

My Girl My Whiskey & Me was named after a song written by Cam Shriver of the Rayado Ruffians. This song represents George's love-at-first-sight experience with bluegrass and the mandolin. We are a progressive bluegrass duo that got it's start in Naples FL. The band has played for a large number of different audiences, from caviar bars, to sports bars, and was recently featured in the Naples Daily News, with another local duo called, The Good Bad Kids.

Despite their rising success in the South Florida area, on 1/11/2014, MGMWAM (extremely long acronym.) bid a bittersweet farewell to their home for a new beginning in Greenville, South Carolina.

Shannon LaBrie

Music by Nashville chanteuse Shannon LaBrie defies genre and brings to life insightful stories of a woman who remains true to herself in a life where uncertainty is certain. The Lincoln, NE native instantly became a favorite among music fans and critics alike with her powerful 2013 debut Just Be Honest. With her lead single, “I Remember a Boy,” the independent release reached inside the Top Ten on iTunes and the Triple A Radio charts. Famed music blogger Bob Lefsetz wrote, “This track affected me. Made me believe like the great singer-songwriters of yore, maybe this woman has something to say. That in this crazy, mixed up, shoot-up world she can illuminate her story and people can relate.”

In April 2016, LaBrie returns with her introspective sophomore album, War & Peace. Tracked live at Nashville’s House of Blues Studio D with producer Tom Michael, War & Peace is an emotionally-charged collection of deep Americana soul that gives voice to the love and loss Labrie experienced throughout her life. “When I listen to music,” Labrie says, “a lot of times, it’s to make me feel good. But a lot of other times, it’s to make me not feel alone. I started writing this album after a loss that put me at war with everything in my life. These songs are small doses of the war I feel inside and the peace I long to find.”

The title track "War & Peace," is inspired by the unwavering love and commitment she experienced while dealing with a tragedy that continues to shake LaBrie’s heart to this day. “I feel very fortunate that I made it through the past five years.” LaBrie continues to explore love in the stirring rocker “It Took My Whole Life.” The smooth and steady “Crumble” addresses how consuming love can feel, and the soulful “Ain’t Just a Feeling” captures the solace love provides. “There was a time when love was a far-off dream,” she says. “Feeling good, feeling like a woman, feeling beautiful wasn’t something that came easily. ‘Ain’t Just a Feeling’ came from a moment when I was able to step out of the sadness and just be happy.”

LaBrie calls out American politicians in the fiery opener “It’s Political,” while “American Dream,” celebrates feeling thankful to live in a country that offers its citizens a life of endless possibility as a basic human right. Anchoring the soul of the album are the deeply emotional “Alcohol” and "Heaven Crashed Down.” “Alcohol” is a moving ballad about trying to save a loved one from a life of addiction, but in trying, only kills the savior. In LaBrie’s own words “There are people who are addicted to alcohol and there are people addicted to trying to fix the people addicted to alcohol. It’s all addiction.” In “Heaven Crashed Down,” LaBrie gives a visual account of the painful loss of her father to cancer when she was only 13. She sings, “He was all we had, he was all I’d lost. The morning heaven crashed down, I grew up."

Austin Chronicle calls LaBrie, “a true guitarist singer/songwriter whose soulful voice’s sensual honey-crisp highs brings to mind the late, great Jeff Buckley.” Rolling Stone says "It's as if Norah Jones and the great late Jeff Buckley started a band and went a tiny bit country."

She has opened for Gabe Dixon, Phoenix, ZZ Ward, The Head and the Heart, The Wild Feathers, Michael Franti and Valerie June. Her résumé includes Triple A Radio Conference, Lightning 100 Sunday Night Showcase, World Cafe, Hotel Cafe, South By Southwest, the Austin City Limits Festival, Road to the Hangout and Road to Bonnaroo.

All members call Lincoln Nebraska their home, which has recently been labeled as a music city by it’s mayor.

The Fattenin' Frogs

Born out of love for the back roads music of America’s past, The Fattenin’ Frogs play rock & roll in its original spirit by cranking up the electricity on the music of the juke joints, hootenannies, medicine shows and tent revivals of yesteryear. The Minneapolis sextet puts their heart and soul into every song so come on out, sing, dance, and clap along!

Gritty, soulful, and always danceable, The Fattenin’ Frogs have been described as Davina and the Vagabonds meets Howlin’ Wolf. Lead vocalists Amanda White and Chris Holm generate a freight train of emotional excitement over a landscape of multi-layered harmonies, scorching electric guitars, thundering drums, wailing harmonica, grooving bass, rollicking piano — and even a little banjo or accordion from time to time. A band in the truest sense, each member is a contributing songwriter and vocalist and injects their own personality into the music. Never safe or stamped out, they are not afraid to cap off a hot night of rock & roll with a zippy little kazoo solo because above all, rock & roll is supposed to be fun!

In 2008, founding members Chris Holm and Mark Larson set out to dig deep into the American roots music that inspired their heroes. Within a year they had assembled a rock & roll band to put what they had learned to work. Six years and two albums later, they are still hard at it, bringing their brand of roots and blues inspired rock & roll to the masses. The band tours regularly throughout the Upper Midwest and has become staples of the music festival circuit including a 2015 Bayfront Blues Fest main stage performance and a performance at the 2014 Deep Blues Fest in Clarksdale, Mississippi.

Earlier this year, the band teamed up with engineer Zachary Hollander at Pearl Recording Studio in Minneapolis to produce their third full length album, Ribbit Rhythms. Their most personal record yet, the album successfully blends a carefree energy with down and dirty unapologetic blues and hearkens back to the glory days of rock & roll. Ribbit Rhythms is set for released on October 10, 2015.

The Fattenin’ Frogs are: Paul Delong (bass guitar, vocals), Mark Larson (drums), Danielle Scofield (vocals), Chris Holm (vocals, guitar, harmonica, banjo), and Amanda White (vocals, kazoo)
