Siggie The Vintage Man, The Hybrid Performer Who Strives to let Vintage music Relive Its Prime!
A combination of Merle Haggard, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Townes Van Zandt would equate to Siggie The Vintage Man. Siggie is an artist that values not only the quality of his sound but also the enjoyment of his fans. His storytelling and interaction with the audience generates an immersive experience for all. His Americana style covers and originals provide sounds that will keep you clapping, singing, and stomping. Two notable quotes by Siggie that convey his themes as an artist are: “There’s a whole lot of voltage in the vintage,” and “Changing the world one song at a time.” Chilled sat down with Siggie to learn about his favorite drinks and bartending past.

Spend time with family, fish, and watch baseball. However, I am not a couch potato because I can’t sit still for too long.

I am up for most anything, but if I were to pick a favorite style it would be Mediterranean.
What types of dishes do you typically order?
I tend to gravitate to Falafel, Kabobs, or a meze plate from a Mediterranean restaurant.
Any favorite bars?
I really love the dive bars, nothing better than hanging with the salt of the earth folks.

Mostly a double Grey Goose on the rocks with a lemon twist, but I have also been known to indulge in a nice whisky poured neat.

Well, I usually start with two beers in the hot tub every night if possible before dinner (when I am not performing) and then usually I will pour myself a whisky neat to wind down.

Several different brands of vodka, some of Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo Gold Tequila, a few different local distilled bourbons, and some beer.
