From the James Wholey himself:
"My backstory around playing 100 gigs at "the Pig" begins in early 2012 with me looking for Open Mics around Portland.Through friends, I heard there was an Open Mic at the Pig being held on Thursday nights. I took one of those in, and met a friendly guy named Lucas who gave me an opportunity to play some material. Fast forward a number of Open Mics followed by hounding Allison throughout that spring, and I finally got her green light for a gig which I delighted in playing on June 24, 2012.

Every trip to play at 'the Pig' since then has been an education and an experience in being one of the 'Pig Family'"
