VIDEO: Mr. nice Guy With Steve Peplin
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 multi-instrumentalist and composer Steve Peplin, who plays in numerous projects in Milwaukee’s jazz, funk, and rock scenes. Among them include Invocation Trio, Strangelander, Dinosaur Rocket, Match Stick, Neil Davis Duo, De La Buena as well as a few others. They discussed Steve’s lineage of musicians he comes from, teaching at MATC and Lawrence University, what each of his bands are up to, trimming down how many projects he’s in, and his interest in fantasy and folklore.
