VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Brendan Demet
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 Brendan Demet, whose solo album “B-25” came out last year. He plays in jazz band Birdbrain and funk band Conscious Congress, plus he runs the studio Riverwest Records. They discussed Brendan’s middle school cover band gig promoting drinking milk, his obsession with theory and improvisation, the making of “B-25”, having the capacity to adapt and change by learning from every person you meet, and what Riverwest Records is up to.
