Castles In Air

Hey music muggers! So wed night, I woke up with a terrible stomach virus and have been in bed since. I am feeling a little better today so I decided I would hit youtube for some good drum covers, cause thats what I do when I am stuck in the house and bored to death...long story short I came across a great drum cover by a guy- Taylor H. Under his video I found the link to his band, Castles in Air based out of Redlands CA, so of course I HAD to check them out! Just as I thought, they did not let me down cause  their music is great! I loved their sound and what's better is- remember that Taylor kid I told you about? haha- he plays drums & sings background vox! Soo cool! Being a drummer myself I think thats is amazing so I am a fan! Anyways....If you want new tunes for your ipod, you can find their album on itunes! Check them out or you'll miss out! PEACE!

Thank for visiting The Music Mug....see ya at my next post!

Alpha Union (For all the spanish music listeners!)



Hey Music Muggers! Sorry I haven't been on here lately...I have been SO busy with life! haha Well today I thought I would feature the spanish worship band, Alpha Union, based out of Miami, Fl. They are a Christian rock band that I enjoy very much! The thing I like most about them is that they know how to ROCK.... in SPANISH! lol  They are a group that writes music with passion & love for the Lord and for people. They have a unique platform that allows them to take their music to many different places in the world and make a positive impact! I know some of you may not understand or like spanish music, but if you do, this is definitely a band you should check out!

Thanks for visiting The Music Mug! Have a GREAT week!

We just recently ad the opportunity to record an EP wit Scotty Wilbanks, the keyboardist for Third Day! Man, it was a really HUGE blessing and all glory goes to God for that! We are a worship band and have had opportunities to minister all around the country and also in Thailand! We look forward to what God has in store for each of us & seek to see a lost and dying world come to Jesus!

Josh Manuel- A Drummer's Life

Hey Peeps! So this week I decided to go with something different on the blog! I know I am supposed to put up bands but, as a drummer, I also appreciate the individual musician! I constantly look on youtube for amazing drum videos (yes I am a dork)! Not to long ago I found this drummer by the name of Josh Manuel based out of Atlanta, Ga! I love his effortless drumming, his crisp sounding SJC drum kit, and impeccable timing! I really enjoy his drum videos which you can check out by clicking the link above! Also you can check out his studio- Century Studios!
Hope you enjoy Josh's talent as I did!
Well, until next time folks!

So today I wanted to share the band Staggerford with you all! 
GREAT band based out of Lincoln, Nebraska! I really enjoy their rock/pop feel. I love it when music is soothing enough, to where you can set it on repeat on the ipod- this is def the band to do that with! haha
 I first heard of this band when I learned about the AMAZING recoding studio The Coda House-  Riley Friesen (lead singer of Staggerford) is the producer for the recording studio! Such a talented dude! Check their music out and show them some love and support!
