Hey MABsters!  I hope everyone had a great St. Patrick’s Day weekend and made it home safe.  A couple of weeks ago MAB performed at the Mousetrap with Mikial Robertson and killed it!  The crowd got some full-on MAB hip-hop with Shaan France coming out from behind the drums to flash some of his MC skills on “NIP”,  plus we debuted our take on the smash hit “Thrift Shop” (videos and audio to come).

Last Tuesday I was invited to be a guest host on WFYI’s The Art of the Matter.  I went to the Eiteljorg Museum where WFYI had their camera gear, lights, and teleprompter set up in the middle of theGuitars Roundups to Rockers exhibit for me to, well, guest host.  I hope you all get a chance to see how much bigger my beard is on TV.  The Art of the Matter will play tomorrow, Tuesday March 19th at 7:30pm on WFYI TV 20 and again on Saturday March 23rd at 6:30pm.  I had a blast doing it and I hope it turns out alright.

Last Friday MAB went up to Muncie to play at Folly Moon with Tonal Caravan.  Muncie was doing a 24 hour music festival and you could see the whole town was jumping with people.  More shows in Muncie will be added to the schedule for sure.

Sunday MAB played an early St. Pat’s Day show at the north side Claddagh Irish Pub.  It was a great show!  Eric Hammes filled in for Dace Robie, who was out of town for the show, and did a great job!  We did a two hour set straight through and he even helped out a little with harmonies.  I just want to say thanks for making it easy on me Eric.

Coming up this weekend, MAB performs at the Famous Duffy’s Place Theater in Valparaiso, IN on Friday, then we head down to 4th Street Bar and Grill Theater in Columbus, IN.  As always, this Wednesday and every Wednesday Max helps host the Mousetrap’s Family Jam.  Bring you’re axe, sticks, sax, or voice and come jam with the fam.
