Hi and welcome to What's Up at the Belly Up, a podcast that features all things related to the world famous Belly Up music venue! We talk to our friends, touring artists, people that make us laugh and everything in between.

Some fun facts about our hosts: Meryl seems to have done it all at the Belly Up. Over the past 9 years she has been responsible for hospitality, marketing, and terrifying sweet young interns. A woman of many talents she also writes for the local variety show, Tonight in San Diego and has her own segment, My San Diego where she tries weird and wacky things. She loves drinking celery juice and has an affinity for round animals like manatees and pufferfish. Meryl also has done tequila shots with Prince Harry, and trended on the front page of Reddit for an unfortunate run-in with a falcon!

Damian has been a touring artist, audio engineer and is the Production Director of the Belly Up! He enjoys family, surfing, cooking, loveable humans and honest music. He loves talking about audio gear, and makes a fine cup of Yerba Mate. D is the man!
