0:00:53.250,0:00:56.400
bit about yourself welcome use ition

0:00:54.720,0:00:59.519
that grew up in Lakeville as the judge

0:00:56.400,0:01:02.000
we’ve known each other forever but I

0:00:59.519,0:01:04.980
don’t really stumble on music until I

0:01:02.000,0:01:08.190
went to college

0:01:04.980,0:01:10.290
I fell in love with it hard and I just

0:01:08.190,0:01:14.340
started playing out playing little shows

0:01:10.290,0:01:18.000
here and there and eventually turned it

0:01:14.340,0:01:19.280
into my career and now I play about 250

0:01:18.000,0:01:23.810
shows a year

0:01:19.280,0:01:26.900
all over Twin Cities tri-state Wisconsin

0:01:23.810,0:01:31.490
the Dakotas a little bit Iowa and down

0:01:26.900,0:01:34.310
to Nashville and Lake Tahoe and yeah

0:01:31.490,0:01:36.430
just feel very fortunate love what I do

0:01:34.310,0:01:36.430
and

0:01:36.640,0:01:41.890
I love that it’s a drink beers with guys

0:01:39.250,0:01:45.490
like you and of course I knew most of

0:01:41.890,0:01:48.180
that so the magic isn’t exactly there

0:01:45.490,0:01:52.540
but I do want to talk about a brief

0:01:48.180,0:01:56.170
moment that I saw Lars the drummer from

0:01:52.540,0:01:58.000
Metallica interviewing Dave Grohl yes

0:01:56.170,0:02:00.340
did you watch that think I’ve seen this

0:01:58.000,0:02:01.960
okay so he did girl just released some

0:02:00.340,0:02:05.320
album and so one of these youtube series

0:02:01.960,0:02:07.630
we’re talking about how many can shows

0:02:05.320,0:02:12.310
to you play consecutively Dave thought

0:02:07.630,0:02:16.209
for a second and he goes one or two and

0:02:12.310,0:02:18.760
Lars goes you played doubles yeah how

0:02:16.209,0:02:21.300
did you give you and meanwhile I’m just

0:02:18.760,0:02:23.830
floored and flabbergasted because

0:02:21.300,0:02:28.570
because we are we’re guys that play like

0:02:23.830,0:02:30.760
six seven shows in a row yeah and Dave’s

0:02:28.570,0:02:32.490
response was yeah and even sometimes

0:02:30.760,0:02:34.599
three

0:02:32.490,0:02:38.659
[Music]

0:02:34.599,0:02:42.290
right like I’d like to get to that that

0:02:38.659,0:02:46.219
spot in my career where I’d like floored

0:02:42.290,0:02:47.780
by guys like me who play the piece I’ve

0:02:46.219,0:02:49.250
talked to some other musicians that you

0:02:47.780,0:02:49.819
know they might just play meat dancer in

0:02:49.250,0:02:53.420
there

0:02:49.819,0:02:54.769
and when they ask me about like my

0:02:53.420,0:02:58.129
sketch I’m like yeah I basically have

0:02:54.769,0:03:00.680
Mouse gigs like five nights a week the

0:02:58.129,0:03:02.900
occasional like Sunday or Tuesday thrown

0:03:00.680,0:03:06.439
in there and they’re like you play like

0:03:02.900,0:03:08.959
every night basically pretty much I

0:03:06.439,0:03:11.720
think the most ever did one month was 33

0:03:08.959,0:03:13.879
shows that’s if you count that that is

0:03:11.720,0:03:15.379
more that shows in there are days in a

0:03:13.879,0:03:17.439
month there are at least year in America

0:03:15.379,0:03:20.069
there were some doubled up for sure yeah

0:03:17.439,0:03:21.900
that’s incredible yeah

0:03:20.069,0:03:24.870
all right so let’s get this started here

0:03:21.900,0:03:27.959
to tell us what your worst musical or

0:03:24.870,0:03:30.900
entrepreneurial experience was playing

0:03:27.959,0:03:31.499
shows for venues where you don’t end up

0:03:30.900,0:03:34.349
getting pitted

0:03:31.499,0:03:40.650
that’s probably I think to be honest I

0:03:34.349,0:03:44.069
really enjoy but that’s maybe the one or

0:03:40.650,0:03:45.480
two times where you know you’re

0:03:44.069,0:03:47.939
expecting money you put in work for

0:03:45.480,0:03:49.919
these people and then all sudden they

0:03:47.939,0:03:52.349
bet kind of it never shows up yeah and

0:03:49.919,0:03:55.170
you’re just like you know unfortunately

0:03:52.349,0:03:58.240
I don’t ask for enough mony

0:03:55.170,0:04:00.940
like I’m gonna take you to court because

0:03:58.240,0:04:02.980
I would lose out for fun you get burned

0:04:00.940,0:04:05.800
and it’s happened a few times and it’s

0:04:02.980,0:04:10.060
it’s always terrible or on the flip side

0:04:05.800,0:04:12.790
like a last minute cancellation yeah

0:04:10.060,0:04:15.760
well that just happened a couple of them

0:04:12.790,0:04:17.500
yeah but and we’ve all been there yeah I

0:04:15.760,0:04:21.160
mean then you and you’re just out and

0:04:17.500,0:04:22.810
you’re like you know I if they give you

0:04:21.160,0:04:25.750
ample time then you may be planning on

0:04:22.810,0:04:28.420
the show but I think for me those

0:04:25.750,0:04:32.470
cancellations at least at this point in

0:04:28.420,0:04:34.720
my career are less about oh shoot I I

0:04:32.470,0:04:37.450
don’t have any shows this weekend and

0:04:34.720,0:04:39.430
more about I spend telling people that

0:04:37.450,0:04:43.450
come to this site get to come to your

0:04:39.430,0:04:47.150
venue to play this show and most people

0:04:43.450,0:04:50.070
are going to show your place

0:04:47.150,0:04:52.470
discipline then I’m not there

0:04:50.070,0:04:55.860
coincidentally there was a situation the

0:04:52.470,0:04:58.670
same weekend where another musician I

0:04:55.860,0:05:02.940
knew one named names instead of work but

0:04:58.670,0:05:05.460
they had a show that they were playing

0:05:02.940,0:05:07.460
cancelled and they received a voicemail

0:05:05.460,0:05:12.590
from the number they didn’t know

0:05:07.460,0:05:14.060
about it was basically a complaint about

0:05:12.590,0:05:16.280
the fact that they weren’t there and

0:05:14.060,0:05:17.930
they drove all the way there and no one

0:05:16.280,0:05:19.280
let them know that mikeg was cancelled

0:05:17.930,0:05:22.370
and I mean it was the last second show

0:05:19.280,0:05:24.710
so even updating your social media you

0:05:22.370,0:05:26.450
know not not Facebook or anything that’s

0:05:24.710,0:05:28.640
pretty instantaneous but to say to your

0:05:26.450,0:05:32.000
website sometimes there’s like a delay

0:05:28.640,0:05:35.360
on the update kind of notice yeah and so

0:05:32.000,0:05:39.490
yes she received basically like pizzas

0:05:35.360,0:05:41.750
man because he wasn’t there and after

0:05:39.490,0:05:44.120
calling the person back and explaining

0:05:41.750,0:05:46.100
the situation was fine but like yeah I

0:05:44.120,0:05:48.800
mean that that happens and it sucks

0:05:46.100,0:05:52.220
I definitely been there yeah okay and

0:05:48.800,0:05:54.320
tell us the moment that you realized I

0:05:52.220,0:05:58.420
want to be a musician I want to pursue

0:05:54.320,0:06:00.730
this you know full-time yeah this is my

0:05:58.420,0:06:03.820
to be a musician sure that was working

0:06:00.730,0:06:05.890
several odd jobs I graduated in 2008

0:06:03.820,0:06:08.140
like right at the beginning of the

0:06:05.890,0:06:09.580
recession really any part and I went to

0:06:08.140,0:06:12.220
school for a graphic design and studio

0:06:09.580,0:06:14.770
art so that was originally my intention

0:06:12.220,0:06:16.210
that was my career goal but I started

0:06:14.770,0:06:19.030
picking up music when I was in college

0:06:16.210,0:06:21.520
and I knew I loved it and I wanted to be

0:06:19.030,0:06:22.870
wanting to be part of my my life in one

0:06:21.520,0:06:24.910
way or another and whether it be playing

0:06:22.870,0:06:28.870
open mic nights or the occasional show

0:06:24.910,0:06:32.160
here and there but at the time I was

0:06:28.870,0:06:34.490
applying for jobs hundreds of jobs and

0:06:32.160,0:06:36.740
serving in bartending

0:06:34.490,0:06:38.810
to try and make ends meet but I plan to

0:06:36.740,0:06:40.370
play a show here in there and then all

0:06:38.810,0:06:42.979
of a sudden through word-of-mouth they

0:06:40.370,0:06:45.410
started getting more show opportunities

0:06:42.979,0:06:46.940
and loving it even more playing through

0:06:45.410,0:06:51.919
crowds that were really really into what

0:06:46.940,0:06:54.530
I was doing and eventually I looked at

0:06:51.919,0:06:57.020
my schedule with my work and my schedule

0:06:54.530,0:06:58.849
with music and music was conflicting

0:06:57.020,0:07:01.580
with my work because I was getting

0:06:58.849,0:07:03.349
booked out so much and that in my head

0:07:01.580,0:07:06.500
that was like the moment where I thought

0:07:03.349,0:07:07.880
you know why don’t I just do this when I

0:07:06.500,0:07:09.530
give this a shot at making more money

0:07:07.880,0:07:13.340
doing this I am bartending or doing

0:07:09.530,0:07:15.500
anything else and I love it and and I

0:07:13.340,0:07:19.550
just dove in at first that was about

0:07:15.500,0:07:21.620
nine years ago I suppose and I haven’t

0:07:19.550,0:07:25.030
looked back it’s been been able to

0:07:21.620,0:07:28.039
sustain myself and play and get out I

0:07:25.030,0:07:30.470
mean seriously I I feel so lucky and I

0:07:28.039,0:07:33.830
loved every second of it there you go

0:07:30.470,0:07:36.139
kids just do it follow your dream just

0:07:33.830,0:07:39.229
just do it what are you waiting for

0:07:36.139,0:07:41.449
yeah all right so let’s go to the

0:07:39.229,0:07:43.729
Lightning wherever that just I’m gonna

0:07:41.449,0:07:45.560
ask you a bunch of questions and without

0:07:43.729,0:07:46.490
thinking I want you to go there like the

0:07:45.560,0:07:48.409
first thought that comes to your mind

0:07:46.490,0:07:50.810
don’t even think about it just just

0:07:48.409,0:07:55.090
answer it what was holding me back from

0:07:50.810,0:07:57.169
becoming a professional musician work

0:07:55.090,0:08:01.009
that was probably the biggest thing well

0:07:57.169,0:08:02.839
earning that solid money yeah consistent

0:08:01.009,0:08:04.849
it was terrifying to dive in and be like

0:08:02.839,0:08:06.860
well now if you’re not playing you’re

0:08:04.849,0:08:08.360
not making money but at the end of the

0:08:06.860,0:08:11.210
day when you know that you can

0:08:08.360,0:08:14.550
accomplish something you can earn money

0:08:11.210,0:08:16.710
you can accomplish it by this means

0:08:14.550,0:08:18.870
you know play music or whatever then

0:08:16.710,0:08:20.750
aren’t you except this the one thing

0:08:18.870,0:08:23.560
that stays in

0:08:20.750,0:08:27.460
and with bottling what you want to do is

0:08:23.560,0:08:30.440
literally just doing it right that’s it

0:08:27.460,0:08:32.810
because if you’re if you know that

0:08:30.440,0:08:35.120
that’s on the line whether or not you

0:08:32.810,0:08:38.090
eat is on the line you’re gonna make

0:08:35.120,0:08:40.969
money yeah you have to what’s the best

0:08:38.090,0:08:42.570
piece of advice human ever received what

0:08:40.969,0:08:44.440
it can to is

0:08:42.570,0:08:46.810
[Music]

0:08:44.440,0:08:48.879
I mean if your that’s got to be the

0:08:46.810,0:08:50.639
biggest you don’t say you’re playing a

0:08:48.879,0:08:53.379
song and you maybe mess up before you

0:08:50.639,0:08:55.990
just be confident in that mess up just

0:08:53.379,0:08:58.149
keep playing through it or immiscible

0:08:55.990,0:09:00.670
like a lyric or something you know if

0:08:58.149,0:09:02.319
the less attention you draw to it the

0:09:00.670,0:09:04.750
less anyone else is gonna know I can’t

0:09:02.319,0:09:07.480
say fuck up in the show right

0:09:04.750,0:09:09.629
I I would say that’s the biggest thing a

0:09:07.480,0:09:13.779
mutual friend of ours

0:09:09.629,0:09:15.430
Todd Douglas the first time he ever saw

0:09:13.779,0:09:17.920
me play was at an open mic right

0:09:15.430,0:09:20.350
he’s like you’re the most timid like

0:09:17.920,0:09:21.459
quiet in a microphone like I mean that

0:09:20.350,0:09:23.319
granted I was getting up playing

0:09:21.459,0:09:27.699
original songs and I was like trying

0:09:23.319,0:09:30.759
them all on you know it’s scary yeah and

0:09:27.699,0:09:32.620
so I got up there and you know yours

0:09:30.759,0:09:36.189
down the line after the play about shows

0:09:32.620,0:09:39.620
everything is like it’s nice day oh but

0:09:36.189,0:09:42.650
little timid Tim all the sudden soup

0:12:10.739,0:12:15.079

0:12:20.189,0:12:28.589
if you could recommend one book to

0:12:25.619,0:12:30.440
anybody that’s that’s thinking about

0:12:28.589,0:12:38.180
diving into the music career

0:12:30.440,0:12:41.030
or an online resource you know to be

0:12:38.180,0:12:44.150
honest I really haven’t dumped into a

0:12:41.030,0:12:47.330
lot of literature I think for me I’m I’m

0:12:44.150,0:12:49.490
fortunate that the people I saw my work

0:12:47.330,0:12:51.830
like at a local music scene I mean

0:12:49.490,0:12:54.140
they’re probably my best resources are

0:12:51.830,0:12:55.310
it’s like trying new things different

0:12:54.140,0:12:57.050
things because there’s so many people

0:12:55.310,0:13:00.260
especially the Minnesota

0:12:57.050,0:13:02.510
yeah and the local scene here that it’s

0:13:00.260,0:13:03.800
have so much information I’m you know in

0:13:02.510,0:13:05.420
the grand scheme I’m still kind of a

0:13:03.800,0:13:07.980
rookie when it comes all my stuff right

0:13:05.420,0:13:09.750
and so

0:13:07.980,0:13:12.790
you know Adam Daniel he’s played in his

0:13:09.750,0:13:14.710
multiple bands travel oh geez

0:13:12.790,0:13:17.560
Tim Mahoney all those you know so you

0:13:14.710,0:13:19.750
mean on your network connection I would

0:13:17.560,0:13:22.030
say more than anything but as far as

0:13:19.750,0:13:23.200
like I mean this really isn’t music

0:13:22.030,0:13:26.890
related but as far as like an

0:13:23.200,0:13:28.930
inspirational book that kind of made me

0:13:26.890,0:13:31.000
dive harder into life

0:13:28.930,0:13:34.360
going after it I’ve always been such a

0:13:31.000,0:13:35.950
huge man into the wild that counts

0:13:34.360,0:13:39.850
yeah that’s I mean that’s an amazing

0:13:35.950,0:13:41.950
that would be I’ve I read it I mean I

0:13:39.850,0:13:44.980
read it probably won’t you twice it here

0:13:41.950,0:13:48.010
just because I love and the whole idea

0:13:44.980,0:13:50.230
of like just giving up on everything

0:13:48.010,0:13:52.480
just going after what what you want

0:13:50.230,0:13:53.830
right you know that’s that was basically

0:13:52.480,0:13:56.610
what you did when you dive in a music

0:13:53.830,0:14:00.269
scene so you’re right you are literally

0:13:56.610,0:14:04.889
