In the Workout camp we take Warren Zevon’s advice to “Enjoy Every Sandwich” very seriously. In that spirit, we decided to pair some of our favorite sandwiches with some of our favorite songs. This is only because we consider ourselves to be the official sommeliers of salami…feast your ears on these delectable pairings from each band member. You can purchase a CD or buy concert tickets here.
