Yes….it is… MM&TU head out.. oh, yea, by the way this year we refer to Mike Mangione & The Union as MM&TU..its faster and a WHOLE lot cooler. MM&TU had their time off, drank their coco (although winter still has not hit the Midwest..), opened their gifts, gained their pounds, fell in love/out of love and back in love with their families and now its time to share what they have learned with you. The band hits the road this Friday with a show in Excelsior, MN and then Eau Clair… both known for their beaches and tropical climate. Then they play some hometown love shows in Chicago and Milwaukee…and Cedar Rapids and Dekalb…and.just check out the tour section.
See you on the road!
XOXO MM&TU HQ
Big thanks to WGN, for a great time as the Midday Music artist. We had to play a little earlier due to the post-election mayoral coverage so for those of you who may have missed it, or wanted to see it again, here’s the link to the WGN TV page:
Thanks to the Morning Blend for having us on again – we’ve got the record for most appearances and we’re not going to stop now. If you liked what you heard then come on down to Summerfest and see us at 5PM today. We’re on the Potawatomi Rock stage opening for Robert Randolph and The Family Band.
