Chicago // JD Simo
This week I’m going to be talking about Chicago with Nashville based artist, JD Simo. JD is originally from Chicago and has a great appreciation for all food in Chicago, especially the classics. I think Chicago may be one of the easiest cities to talk about when it comes to food, but like I said, JD loves the classics and there really is so much to love about these dishes and the restaurants. Naturally, we’ll be getting into sausages, hot dogs, deep dish & Italian beef. If you want to keep up with JD you can find him on Instagram at @jdsimo If you want to find us, we’re on Instagram at @food.ontour If you have any questions, comments or, most importantly, food recommendations, you can send those to foodontourguys@gmail.com Head to foodontourpod.com for a full list of restaurants mentioned in this episode and all others

Detroit // The Blue Stones
This week, I'm talking about some of the amazing food in Detroit with The Blue Stones. The Blue Stones are a 2 piece rock band from Windsor, Ontario... Seemed like a perfect fit to be talking Detroit with these guys, considering they live just over the border from Detroit. We'll be getting into Coney Dogs, Detroit style pizza, and where you can find 50 cent PBR's along with some good jazz. Not a combo I'd expect to find anywhere other than to Detroit, honestly. We're also talking about, what I imagine will be a bit of a divisive topic, and that's Windsor style pizza. I was unaware how big of a deal Windsor pizza really is, but these guys are going to give us all the spots we need to know for a proper Windsor pizza experience. This episode is dedicated to one of my favorite people in Detroit... Ronnie Benniefield AKA Paps Smurf. "Rain, sleet or snow... Papa Smurf will show!"

TREATS // Max Collins (Eve 6) & L1zy Ryan (Big Data)
This week I’m joined by Max Collins and L1zy Ryan. Max is in Eve 6, Fitness and also has a new project called Chevy Mustang and L1zy plays for Big Data. This conversation is all about TREATS. At first, I thought we’d just be talking about donuts and cupcakes… Ya know, sweet treats. But this conversation made me reconsider my definition of “treats” in the context of touring. Sometimes it really is just a dozen donuts, but most of the time it’s something to comfort you, relieve some stress or just escape for a bit. For me, those things show up in the form of big group dinners, a mid-tour massage, or finding some reeeeeally good pie somewhere along the way. For Max and L1zy, it’s everything from milkshakes and BBQ to cigars and gambling.

French Fries // Steve Choi (RX Bandits)
This week I'm joined by Steve Choi of RX Bandits. I have been a big fan of RX Bandits for a long time and I am very appreciative of Steve taking the time to join me in obsessing over food. In this episode, we'll be focusing on the French Fry. It's everywhere, it's delicious, it's comforting and, in my opinion, it's the ultimate vehicle for condiments. The French Fry may not be Steve's favorite food, but it's a part of his story and many touring musician's stories throughout their careers... From touring with no money in a 15 passenger van to day off Michelin Star restaurants in Paris, the French Fry is there.  You can find Steve on Instagram at @rxchoi You can find us on Instagram at @food.ontour If you have any questions, comments or, most importantly, food recommendations, you can send those to foodontourguys@gmail.com Full list of restaurants mentioned on this episode is at foodontourpod.com

Truck Stops, Fast Food & Regional Favorites // Diet Cig
This week, I'm joined by Alex and Noah of Diet Cig. They're a 2 piece rock band, originally from upstate New York, now living in Richmond, VA. This conversation is all about convenience. We're talking about truck stops, fast food, and some favorite foods for those post-show/way too tired for anything kind of nights in hotels. We've all got a favorite truck stop, we all know the last resort meal when there's nothing else in sight, and I think most of us find a little comfort in those things. You can find Diet Cig on Instagram at @dietcig You can find us on Instagram at @food.ontour If you have any questions, comments or, most importantly, food recommendations, you can send those to foodontourguys@gmail.com Full list of restaurants mentioned on this episode is at foodontourpod.com

Cocktails, Coffee and Hotel Lobbies // Lynn Gunn (PVRIS)

They just released a new record called “Use Me” a couple weeks ago and it rules. Go check it! Lynn and I will be covering all sorts of topics… Everything from pre-show hotel lobby hangs to post-show diner stops, cocktails... And Julia Roberts. We’ll also be discussing her dietary restrictions as a result of Crohn’s Disease. Thanks as always for listening and enjoy my conversation with Lynn!

Portland // JOSEPH
This week, I’m joined by some of my favorite people and musicians, Natalie Schepman and Meegan & Allie Closner. They have an incredible band called Joseph, who I have been lucky enough to play for and tour with for a bit. They are a Portland-based band, so it only felt right to talk about eating and drinking in Portland with them. We’ll be getting into some of their favorite bars and restaurants in town, restaurants that cater to Meegan and Allie’s dietary restrictions, as they are gluten-free, and some of the places that they’ve come to love during the pandemic. Thank you as always for listening and enjoy my conversation with Joseph!

Food, Tiki, Rock & Roll // Mike Poorman (Hot Rod Circuit)
This week, my guest is Nashville based drummer and drum tech, Mike Poorman. I'm very excited to have Mike on the show, as I have been a fan of his band, Hot Rod Circuit, for a very long time. Currently, Mike mostly tours as drum tech for Billie Eilish, Andrew McMahon, Thrice, and Zac Clark. He's also a food and tiki fanatic, so we'll be getting into some of Mike's favorite restaurants to visit on tour as well as his favorite tiki bars. He was an absolute pleasure to talk with and I think we could have gone on about tiki bars for at least another hour. He knows his shit! Thanks for listening and enjoy my conversation with Mike!

PIZZA! // Big Data
This week, we're going deep on pizza with Alan Wilkis & Gunnar Olsen from Big Data. Obviously, there are certain cities that have much better pizza than most, but this podcast is about finding the best food you can while you're on tour. That means sometimes you have to satisfy a pizza craving while you're in Columbus, OH or maybe you just want to order Domino's to your hotel room. Regardless of the scenario, I believe there's really good pizza in most cities, and these guys seem to be on the same page. Enjoy the conversation with Big Data! You can find Big Data on Instagram at @bigdatabigdata.
