Power chords and crashing boards. Mikey and Tom talk music, hockey, and anything else that gets in their way.Tom and Mikey are lifelong friends that grew up on Long Island during the glory days of alternative music where our local bands were As Tall As Lions, Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Bayside, The Sleeping, Envy on the Coast, you get the point. We spent many nights together at The Downtown, catching any pop-punk, indie, hardcore, or emo band that came through. This was not a phase, Mom! Fast forward 15 years and we are still just as passionate about the scene as we were during our girl jeans and youth XL band tees days.Tom and Mikey are also diehard New York Islanders fans, but as we like to say we are #notanislespodcast. As we got older we realized we can like more than one thing and running beside our love for music has always been our love for hockey. We have realized we are not alone in this thinking, actually there are many of us that love these two things! This podcast explores just how connected they are!

Bardown breakdown

These guys really hit my niche, not only as a musician but an avid hockey fan this podcast nails both things I feel passionate about. The guests are incredible and the hosts are beyond relatable. It’s a podcast I look forward to, and get excited when I see a new episode has popped up! Great job guys!!!!

Santos_9 ,

The best hockey podcast in existence.

Mikey and Tom are the GOATS. Their love and passion for hockey and music come together to unlock personal discoveries from guests you won’t find anywhere else. It’s a beautiful thing, and you’ll be inspired to listen to some great music you otherwise wouldn’t have. LETS GO ISLANDERS!

Jrobknowsbest ,

Hockey and Music?!

This podcast has interviewed some of my favorite musicians and influencers since their inception. Both hosts are easy to listen to and they bring a personal connection to every episode to everyone listening! I also love how they geek out talking to the guests they look up to!
