"GROOVADELICHOPALATIN REGGAFUNKAJAZZ." This is the best way of describing the sound of MWC. Trumpet, tablas, timbales, guitars, keyboards and hand synths are only a part of what is blended together to be MWC's one of a kind energetic audible delights. www.mwcmusic.com

Biography

"What does MWC stand for?"
This is usually the first question. To quote a song of ours:
"Anything and everything, but mostly nothing at all."

Make MWC your own by personallizing what it means to you. (Music With Chords, Milk Wants Cookies, Monkey Wookie Chimpanzee)

In some way, shape or form, MWC has been evolving in and around Chicago since 1996. Their open-minded approach has allowed many influences to be woven into the tapestry that is MWC. The 5 individuals in MWC have diverse backgrounds that have left lasting impressions in their lives, and can be heard within the range of genres that make MWC’s music hard to describe. Some genres include: fusion, funk, rock, jazz, jam, electronic, hip-hop, experimental… well, you get the idea where "GROOVA-DELIC-HOP-A- LATIN-REGGA-FUNKA-JAZZ" came from. Please feel free to tell the band what kind of music you hear embedded in the tunes & your 'MWC' meaning!

Since 2004 MWC has enjoyed the Chicago music scene, playing with some of chicago staple bands, and at venues known throughout the world. Branching out to new listeners along with regional exposure has become our major priority. The full length debut album "HEADfirst" (over 74 minutes!) is now available through the website, and other downloadable sites upon it's release in June of 2006.

Lyrics

Relaxer Elixir

Written By: Jerry Spiering

I need some mixer,
For my relaxer elixir.
I need some mixer,
For my relaxer elixir.
Oooooo, I'm in love with the fixer
Of my favorite elixir,
I's gots my own special way
That I tips her.

Sanded Wood

Written By: Barrett & Josh Tasky, MWC

Another bored day passes me by again, i find myself by myself, by myself again...think i'll call a friend

I sanded wood today, i sanded a kitchen door, i sanded a kitchen drawer, i sanded a kitchen cutting board...i sanded wood today.

I heard the other day: "Nothing is Sacred." {Nothing is Sacred}

What is it with doorways?
Their wave on my aura is warm.
The more i live the more i learn
to be myself, and not get stock upon the shelf, by myself
worse yet : with no one else.

I get there quarter to 6 in morn got to feed the need nicotine, caffeine, & coffee are good. I'll go in back and get my stripper, my lacquer, my thinners...i'm killing my innerds.
(That's right i'm killing myself from the inside out!)

I'm working here, how 'bout you?
I'm working there at 82...
8232 Lincoln avenue.

What is it with doorways?
Their wave on my aura is warm.
The more i live the more i learn
to be myself, and not get stock upon the shelf, by myself
worse yet : with no one else.

I sanded wood today, i sanded a kitchen door, i sanded a kitchen drawer, i sanded a kitchen cutting board...i sanded wood today.
{...and the sanders drone...}

Set List

MWC does 2 types of shows, a 'featurette set,' usually opening for regional & national acts, or a 'full show.' A featurette set is generally 45 minutes to an hour that enables us to showcase the grooves, melodies and upbeat energy of our catalog so you're thirsty for more. For a full show, MWC will usually play 2 ninety (90) minute sets, allowing the colors and diversity of the musical soundscape to change and bring the audience's ear even closer to the band. Full sets can be found at setlist.com, but below is an average set.

MWC focuses on our presenting original songs, but a cover or two per full show is likely to sneak in. These covers range from songs you know played in a different light (Beatles, Paul Simon, Van Morrison, The Band) or deeper cuts from bands worth hunting down. (Karl Denson's Tiny Universe)
