Weekend Brunch Edition Vol. 17 Part 1: Weekly News Shorts Plus Spotify Playlist

Editor’s Note:  Welcome to the 17th edition of Weekend Brunch Edition Weekly News and Spotify Playlist via Madness To Creation!  It’s the middle of February already and we are gearing up for our hot dates for the biggest couple’s consumerism holiday there is known as Valentine’s Day.  Guarantee you the sole purpose of the holiday is to make sure that Hallmark, Russell Stover, 1-800 Flowers and Trojan all stay in freaking business.  As we have been crazy busy with our work weeks, we are celebrating the weekend!  We crack open some eggs, fry up some steak, and enjoy some brunch.  But wait, we missed out some music news and you might be wanting some new music to check out!  Well, Madness To Creation is your hookup, holler if you hear us!  #SorryScottSteiner  So, after you put away the Halloween decorations, sit back and relax and enjoy this weekly Spotify playlist. It is broken down into the following categories:

  1.  Meat & Taters:  This is where the heavy hitters come in to play.  The main course if you will.  Chances are you’ve heard of this group.
  2.  Light & Fluffy:  This is where a band/artist might come off on the lighter side of music.  Where you might have a potato pancake with the glass of OJ.
  3.  Tailgate:  Because you can’t wait til lunch or supper so these bands/artists get you in the mood to tailgate and party over brunch.
