VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Gina Romantini
Our Music Director, 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.
Today, Ben talks to rock n’ roll fiddle player Gina Romantini, who has played with Milwaukee artists Trapper Schoepp and Whiskey of the Damned as well as national acts The Wallflowers, Fountains of Wayne, and The Doobie Brothers to name a few. Originally from Milwaukee, she currently lives in LA. They discussed Gina’s origins playing music, clout culture, accountability, getting connected in the industry, and what she’s been up to during quarantine.
