Reaching that 40th season means a great deal. It’s really a labor of love on my part and the part of the many players, who are very loyal and committed. When we started out, I thought this would be a band that would have a lot of fun playing music and be very eclectic, but of course I HAD NO IDEA IT WOULD ENDURE THIS LONG.
Over the years, the group’s sound has changed for the better. We’ve gotten much more attuned to one another’s playing. We can do things that wouldn’t be possible if we didn’t have that kind of history together, make certain kinds of musical moves that are ALMOST PARALLEL TO A BASKETBALL TEAM GOING DOWN THE COURT.
