VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Kevin Topel
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.
Ben talked to multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Kevin Topel, who has been involved with the Milwaukee music scene for over a decade. He’s played in bands The Cavewives, The Delta Routine and The Ragadors plus several tribute groups. They discussed Kevin’s origins playing guitar and getting into rock music as a preteen, infiltrating the Milwaukee scene via The Delta Routine, originality and authenticity, bringing a creative edge to tributes, and solo material he’s been working on.
