Mild High Club

Illinois

Name, where are you from?
My name is Alexander Brettin and I'm from Cary, Illinois USA.

Describe your style in three words?
Stoner Jazz Dad.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Steely Dan with my folks at Ravinia Festival

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
Steely Dan.
John Coltrane.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
Jazz, weed, crate-digging.    

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Jesus Christ, maybe he'd burn one down with me.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
It's hard to remember them all - I loved playing at The Wall in Taipei. They had incredibly nice gear and staff!  

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Donald Fagen! His compositional depth paired with witty, comical lyrics through the voice of a cartoon character is cathartic to say the least. 


Mild High Club recently supported King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard on their recent UK tour. The two bands also collaborated in 2017 on the jazz orientated album 'Sketches of Brunswick East', which was released in the UK by Heavenly Recordings.
