VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with SaxyCass
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 talks with alto saxophonist SaxyCass (Cass Struve), who has played in several local projects while also making jewelry and art. She now has her own project, SaxyCass&DaBandM8S. They discussed Cass’ first time picking up a saxophone, beer and Toppers Pizza, street performing outside Summerfest, getting around to recording her songs, and using art to cope from trauma.
