Local Musician to Perform at NFL Honor's Party

Local Perry musician, and 2011 Houston County High School graduate Sam Fisher takes the stage for the NFL Honor's Party this weekend with the band, BADHORSE.

Fisher took a few minutes out of his rehearsal schedule to answer a few questions for us.

WMAZ: So you’ve landed this gig, hosted by Alec Baldwin. Tell me more about that.

 

SAM FISHER: We are playing for the NFL Honor's Party hosted by Alec Baldwin and it will air February 6th at 10:00 p.m. on the NFL Network Channel. 

WMAZ: How did you get started with the band, BADHORSE?

SAM: At first, I got hooked with them because they needed a drum tech and then one day I got a call saying the old drummer left and they needed a new one, wondering if I would try out, I gladly accepted and now I am playing at the Superbowl with the guys.

WMAZ: What is one of the best memories you’ve had with the band so far?
