As You Like It
Mowrey played his first professional show at the Hightstown Bowling Lanes, located just off Exit 8 on the New Jersey turnpike. Even the thunderous sound of struck pins and drunken bowlers was no match for the voluminous cacophony that issued forth from Mowrey's fledging musical enterprise. It was a harbinger of things to come. After that, while never quite becoming famous in his own right, Mowrey went on to play with people who've played with people. Along the way, he learned piano, organ, guitar, mandolin and, in his most recent leap towards virtuosity and wide-spread acclaim, accordion.
