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!

Mike and the band travel to tropical Iowa City to record their 4th studio album. According to the band the theme of the album is “good” so we will see what kind of inspiration they can till from that. More info to come along with some video bloging of the experiance. Stay tuned.
Also, the band returned from Spain tired, sweaty, 5 pounds lighter and filled with tapas (weird juxtaposition). While over seas they ran into one of their favorite people and top blogs You sing I write. Check out the love from writer Annie Reuter
