Liner Notes: Mike Grubbs, aka Wakey!Wakey!, parts with blood, sweat and tears during his spectacular live performances and this was no exception. Supported by a full band and a 4 piece string section Mike molds soul, punk rock and his classical piano background into a moveable feast. More on this release coming soon. Partial proceeds will go to American Diabetes Association.
Michael Grubbs: "This CD is a very special time capsule to me. A great recording of our first full band show ever. It also marks the beginning of our relationship with Family. It seems like so long ago, but the intensity of our first sold out show is palpable on this very special live recording."
