My Girl, My Whiskey & Me | May 26, 7 p.m. | FREE
My Girl My Whiskey & Me was named after a song written by Cam Shriver of the Rayado Ruffians. This song represents George’s love-at-first-sight experience with bluegrass and the mandolin. A progressive bluegrass duo that got it’s start in Naples, Florida, the band has played for a large number of audiences from caviar bars to sports bars, and was recently featured in the Naples Daily News, with another local duo called, The Good Bad Kids.
Despite their rising success in the South Florida area, MGMWAM (an extremely long acronym) bid a bittersweet farewell to their home for a new beginning in Greenville, South Carolina in January 2014. The band’s folk, rock, progressive bluegrass and Americana notes have been influenced by The Beatles, The Civil Wars, Modest Mouse, The Decemberists, and Old Crow Medicine Show to name a few.
