Why this name?
From the title of an old Z Z Hill song
Do you play live?
Yes, All over the NY/NJ/CT/PA area. Love it. Playing at the Red Bank Jazz & Blues Festival in the spring of 2008. There was a serious thunderstorm about an hour before we were due to play and I was still suffering from the Shingles. Everybody was delayed about 20 minutes and by the time we hit the stage it was beautiful out. Sunny, warm and the grass in front of the stage was dry enough for people to lay out on. Everyone loved us and we had a ball.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It makes it more accessible to more people and that, for a musician is great. You no longer have to deal with the middle man (Record Company) and can get straight to the people.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes, to get more funds to play bigger gigs.
