VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy With Jeremy Zelman
One of our contributors, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
For this episode, Ben sat down with Jeremy Zelman, who plays guitar in the bands The Anytime Leslies and The Nameless Travelers, and bass in Angry Fix (who just had their debut show). He is also a music lecturer at UWM and guitar teacher at Guitar Center. They discussed UWM’s music composition program, political music, egos in the music scene, different projects with the same people, and tikun olam.
