From folk to progressive rock they cover a spectrum that spans from front porch hoe-downs to traditional garage rock offering something for everyone. The Mississippi Stranglers truly are an original “American band.” If anyone out there knows, I am really good friends of the Sonic Americana band Mississippi Stranglers.  Lately, the band has been playing a lot of shows around the McHenry County area and beyond. I got to catch up with the singer and guitar player, Kurt Carlson, to ask what is happening for the rest of the year with The Stranglers. Here is what he had to say: UnRated Coren:  I heard there is a big festival you guys will be playing soon…  Tell me about that… Kurt:  Yes.

WAH30 is a 4 piece original rock band from Chicago, IL. Frontman James Duich and lead guitar player Anthony Defilippis met and began writing music nearly fifteen years ago. Through the years, they have evoked a bond of musical styling that flows into the songwriting of WAH30. Two years ago, a jam session would create the applied named first WAH30 song “I Start Fires.”       Art Wito’s hard hitting drums created a rhythmic backbone for the layered guitar and hypnotic bass lines. Recently, bassist Andrew Mishler of Kinda Good/King Garbage joined the group to round out the rock quartet with his own thunderous brand of bass fuzz. “We wanted to create something unique,” says Frontman James...

Jeremy Mansfield is one of those people to me.  This guy is a beast when it comes to playing the drums.  Jeremy truly impresses me with his energetic and precise banging of the drums when he plays with the astounding band Meka Nism…  When he plays the song “The Shift” I get chills watching him go crazy like a mad man on his drums and I love it! As of recent, the wonderful Jeremy got a great new endorsement from the one and only DDrums!!!!  I had the great opportunity to speak with Mr. Mansfield and here is what he had to say about this great accomplishment…. UnRated Coren:  Who are your influences? Jeremy:  Almost too many to name! I’d start off with Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa and definitely Vinnie Paul from Pantera.
