Tim Johnson Band


Hey Friends! 
Today I decided to feature the band/ministry I am a part of! TJB is a band based out of Atlanta, Ga and we have been a band for several years now! 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! 
You can check out TJB at the website above, where you will b able to find a link to our new EP!

Thanks for visiting The Music Mug! Until next time!

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!

The Franz Family


When I first saw this group I thought....WOW-TALENT! I am not too big on bluegrass music unless  I am at a festival or something where it's playing in the background. I discovered this band on facebook and was hooked by their rendition of the christmas song "Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel" THEY ARE AN AWESOME band! Their music is soothing and pure. If you love good singing and amazing dobro playing, The Franz Family will not let you down! They are those people that make you sick, in a good way, cause they can pretty much play any instrument and dominate! haha

He was studying music like I was so we got along! haha I heard he had a band and thought I would check them out- I don't regret I did! If you are a fan of Flyleaf (I happen to think she is awesome) then this will def blow you away! The heavy bass, killer drums, and rocking vocals are sure to be a treat if you are into hardcore music! Check'em out & enjoy!
