What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

What we love most about being musicians is the connection that we make with our audience. Over the past 20 years, we’ve made hundreds, if not thousands, of relationships and friendships with some pretty amazing people!

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

This is a tough one. The three of us come from different musical backgrounds. We love tower of power, the Foo Fighters, Prince, iron maiden, Bruno Mars, Maná… The list goes on and on. To play it safe, let’s just say Dave Grohl. He’d be a great hang!

If you were the next Opening Act, what would you do with $10,000?

We’d like to say that we would invest this money into recording but the reality is, the money would probably go to a new sink for our bass player, new vinyl for our guitar player and a down payment on a new truck for our drummer.
