What’s the first gig you ever attended?
Dan Pellarin (Lead Singer/Rhythm Guitar/Keys): The first show I ever attended was The Beach Boys at The Westbury Music Fair in Westbury, NY. My grandfather had taken me, and I remember being incredibly excited to sing “Barbara Ann” with everyone. I think it was awesome, but I was 7 haha!
Ben Cramer (Lead Guitar): I would have to say probably seeing Bruce Springsteen when I was a little kid with my dad.
Joey Doino (Drums) – I’m pretty sure the first show I ever went to was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Concert at Radio City. At the time singing/dancing/drumming/key-tar playing turtles was completely normal to me..
What is the best gig that you ever played/performed?
DP: Best gig I’ve ever played, performed, been apart of, experienced, and so on, was our recent headlining gig on New Years Eve at The Bitter End in Greenwich Village, NYC. Arguably the greatest night of my life. I’m sure the boys would agree.
BC: I’d have to say NYE 2013 with Arc & Stones in NYC.
JD: I’m with Dan on this one. That New Years Eve show was an incredible experience and I’m definitely never going to forget it.
What is the best gig you have ever seen?
DP: May 19th, 2012…Jack White at HangOut Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama. I was screaming like a little girl. Probably explains it enough right there. What a night.
BC: I’d have to say seeing My Morning Jacket at Bonnaroo in 2011. Unbelievable band.
JD: The best show I’ve ever seen was definitely The Frames at Irving Plaza in NYC. They completely blew me away and I’m fairly certain I couldn’t speak for a couple days after.
Gig you would most like to play?
DP: Is a date with Madison Square Garden too much to ask?
BC: Playing at Chastain Amphitheater right by the house I grew up in back in Atlanta.
JD: Headlining at Yankee Stadium.. Hands down
What would be the lineup for your dream gig?
DP: A night of music with Arc & Stones, Audioslave, Kasabian, The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, and Muse…ear drum explosion.
BC: Probably any lineup with Pearl Jam in it would work for me.
JD: I’d love to share a bill with Marc Broussard, Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin, The Roots, and Micheal Jackson to close it out… If only it could happen..
