Not everybody has it in them to follow their dream to the very end. That long road is not meant for the weak of heart, nor the faint of mind. For every artist that has been able to carve a career out of their dream, there are 10 stranded by the wayside. It takes a combination of strength, courage and a lot of luck. I would have to say that it takes a body awhile to understand that the road doesn’t stop until you do. There is no end to what you can accomplish. Now if you ask “Cheech”, he will tell you that the trip is worth every mile…
Cheech has been a staple in the LaCrosse music scene for over 15 years. Whether you went to see his open shows down at Del’s Bar, or caught him shredding a stage with good friend Paul Matushek, he has never changed his laid back disposition. If you have not yet gone to see Cheech live, then I suggest you do it immediately, for a growing road schedule and production company (Deece Productions) might be taking him away from his roots more often.
In this episode our good pal Cheech was able to sit down and discuss the past, present and future. We talk about some of the bands that he and his friends have been able to put together over the years. Some of which are still performing today. We dig into what Deece Productions is, and how amazing it is to get to pay homage to Rock-n-Roll icons of the 20th century. We touch on what performing with Nicholas David has been like, and what’s laying in the cards for him.
Talented musician, entrepreneur and visionary, I have a feeling we will be seeing much more from Mr. Gregg “Cheech” Hall. I’m pretty sure he filled up his tanks before hitting that long road.
