Describe your sound: Guitar based Midwestern Rock N Roll
What’s the band’s origin story? Jack Nachtman and Shawn Healy reconnected many years later after having first played together in Middle School and High School. Brian Stehula was in Shot To Hell with Jack previously. They all got to talking at a Bobby Bare Jr house show and the rest is history! Our new drummer Robert Schramski also played with Jack in Mudride previously.
Who are your influences?: Replacements, early Soul Asylum, Uncle Tupelo, Built to Spill, Guided by Voices.
Favorite Venue to Play: Many! Some include: Mickeys Tavern in Madison, The Hook and Ladder in Minneapolis, MidWest Music Festival in La Crosse.
Where did you record?/Who did you work with?/How was the experience?
Dyed in the wool studio in Dubuque with Matt Hohmann. Excellent experience as we recorded live with only vocals and some guitar solos as overdubs.
Anything else the world should know about you? We feature three songwriters/vocalists and are addicted to cool guitar tones! We like to tour/travel, meet our audience, and other bands! Of course have a good time doing it as well!
