Casey McBride: Drummer and Mafia Historian / Coffeeshop Conversations @ Catfish Lou's #186

By TOM D'ANTONI // Casey McBride has combined a career in music with his job as Mafia historian. Find out how.

Welcome back to Catfish Lou’s, our home for OMN’s Coffeeshop Conversations.

With me today is an unusual gentleman, even for a musician. Not only has he been a drummer on the Portland scene for a long time, but he’s also a Mafia historian.


Yeah. Usually you think of Mafia music as stuff like the theme from The Godfather, or Louis Prima or Jerry Vale but in addition to his work on the National Crime Syndicate webmagazine, and appearances on national TV, he writes songs ABOUT the Mafia.

How about that?

He'll have an album release at Al's Den on Monday, March 25.

Let’s meet Casey McBride.
