On Monday, 5/20/2013 from 2-4PM we hosted another special music and wine sampling edition of the Fuzz Sessions series live on the FUZZ Sessions Blog featuring music by Oakland-based soul rockers Whiskerman, wine supplied by the award-winning Napa Valley winery Crosby Roamann, and an appearance by wine celebrity Mark Oldman! The band played a 45 minute set in the BASS-ment studio before Jeff sat down for an interview and wine sampling round table with Oldman, Sean McBride from Crosby Roamann, and the band members!
Oakland-based indie rockers Whiskerman brought their versatile, soulful sound to the FUZZ Bass-ment studio for a session on May 20, 2013, which can be viewed exclusively on the FUZZ Sessions Blog. Growing up the youngest in a family of musicians, the band’s lead man Graham Patzner incorporates a variety of cross-genre influences into his music vision. Patzner is supported by his brother Lewis Patzner (Judgement Day, Devotionals) on cello, Will Lawrence on bass, Nick Cobbett on drums, and Charles Lloyd (Cash Pony) on guitar and sitar. Whiskerman will be stopping by the studio just before heading to perform at the The Pocket in Santa Cruz, CA at 8PM. For more information on when the band will be playing near you, check out their website at www.whiskerman.com and to sample their music, check out their Bandcamp site.
Immediately after the Whiskerman set, Napa Valley-based winery Crosby Roamann poured wines and participated in a round table discussion with Jeff! Husband and wife-team Juliana and Sean McBride closely oversee the crafting and distribution of the wines, and employ a unique, low-intereference philosophy in winemaking that they discussed in detail with Jeff. Needless to say, we were very excited to host them and sample their wines! For more information on Crosby Roamann, check out http://www.crosbyroamann.com/.
Last but not least, author, leading wine personality, and longtime friend of FUZZ Mark Oldman made his third appearance on the FUZZ Sessions, and joined Jeff, the band, and Sean McBride of Crosby Roamann for a discussion of wine and music. Additionally, Oldman discussed a few of the wines he is excited about at the moment. The wine expert for Pottery Barn, wine columnist for Food Network, and twice winner of the Georges Duboeuf Best Wine Book of the Year Award, we were ecstatic about Oldman’s return to the FUZZ Sessions!
