Taste of Cheese (Wisconsin Exposure 2 of 5)

Anyone else from Wisconsin or Minnesota notice the explosiveness of Fat Maw Rooney? While my two years at WSUW I had heard about FMR from the guys of Stealin' Strings, and I was finally able to see them last October as they opened for the Big Wu. After watching the Stealin' Strings set my friends weren't too interested in staying for the Big Wu, but I convinced them to see FMR after I had heard all the hype about them. FMR that night put on quite a show while keeping the crowd busy with the danceable grooves. On New Years they played at Olympia in Oconomowoc, WI with the Northwoods Band.
