This weeks guest is Tobin Bawinkel of Flatfoot 56. From The Windy City to the streets of Bremerton Mike and Tobin share a lifetime of stories and experiences surviving in the world of music. From debt to family pain, music can cause crushing blows to your home life so it takes a special group of people to make it work. This is that story…..      

More on Flatfoot 56
Playing a positive-natured brand of hardcore-tinged Celtic punk, Flatfoot 56 has been unleashing itself upon America and the rest of the world for over 16 years. Forming in 2000, the Chicago natives achieved nationwide attention with their first two label-backed records, 2006’s Knuckles Up and 2007’s Jungle of the Midwest Sea. These releases built on a heavy dose of previously established regional notoriety, helping the band gain steam early on.
While each record received its fair share of acclaim, the quintet exploded onto a new level with 2010’s Black Thorn. Landing the band on a total of 9 Billboard Charts, Flatfoot 56 proved it could consistently reach an expanding audience while treading in a genre not often associated with widespread success. This success was advanced even further with song placements in the hit TV series "Sons of Anarchy" and the video game "Watchdogs".  After the success of “Blackthorn", Flatfoot 56 hit the studio yet again in 2012 to record "Toil". This album would further solidify the band as a consistent force to be reckoned with. 
   Flatfoot 56’s new album, ”Odd Boat”, was produced by Matt Allison at Atlas studios in Chicago. “We decided that since the last experience at Atlas Studios was so beneficial, we wanted to repeat it,” Bawinkel said. “We have been friends with Matt for a few years now and we love the work that he and his studio engineers do.”
Flatfoot 56 has decided to partner with Sailor’s Grave Records to help deliver the next chapter of their legacy to the world.
 
FOR FANS OF: Dropkick Murphys, Cock Sparrer, and Flogging Molly

Tobin Bawinkel (Lead vocals, Rhythm guitar)

How to discover the hidden benefits of your product

Based on two principles:

1. Everyone wants to make progress within their current situation

2. People "hire" products + services + experiences to make their life better

So the question you need to ask is: "How does my art, my music, my thing, make people more awesome? How does it help them make progress in their lives?

Now why do kids stop listening to bands?

"The music is no longer helping them make progress in their life."

What's the key to longevity in music?

You've gotta stay ahead of the fan: keep giving them progress. And you're seeing that now with MxPx. Now people are back into the music because of the nostalgia factor.

But people "hire" MxPx for other reasons:

Why do people like this video? : www.facebook.com/MxPxPx/videos/10153957974036035/

what "jobs" are people hiring MxPx for?
