Originating in Columbia, SC, Whiskey Mikes was formed by three best friends that wanted to turn fun times jamming together into something more, as well as let people hear their original style. With the help of William Clark (Circa 2015), the three friends did just that. Whiskey Mikes has played a multitude of shows, growing in popularity with their unique covers and display of diversity in music genres.
After decades in the local Columbia, SC music scene fronting the popular party band Tootie & the Jones, singer and guitarist Murray “Don't call him Tootie” Baroody decided to mark his 50th birthday by writing and recording some of his own songs. Once he enlisted the assistance of Jam Room Studio owner and local bassist Jay Matheson and drummer Steve Sancho, a surprising thing happened – the trio became the band, The Distributors. The collective experience of the players shows in every riff, every groove, every beat of these songs. They are not trying to be fancy, hip, or even all that current; rather they capture the timeless essence of simple rock 'n' roll pleasures like nothing since the glory days of 70's rock.
Wurst Wagen and Yesterday's, with sweet treats from Brain Freeze Italian Ice!
