American indie-folk band, The Mowgli’s, hail from California, US via the Midwest, making music since 2009 that melds rock ‘n’ roll with folk-tinged electronica, similar to the likes of Grouplove, Fun and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
Their music involves influence and writing from all of the band’s six total members – allowing for the influence of multiple decades and genres of music. From Sixties-infused jangly folk/pop to the groovy Seventies to the 80’s inspired sounds you can find in their music, The Mowgli’s sound is vibrant and unique. From performances on Jimmy Kimmel to earning the honors of Song of the Week on iTunes to topping the Alternative Music Charts, this group is just getting started and we can’t wait for you to hear them before the rest of the world does!
You’ll discover and taste some of the world’s most notable whiskies including the Midwest’s finest. Tastings, including some cocktails, are led by expert brand ambassadors and distillery representatives.
