JP: You guys have been called one of the most promising, and best, live bands in the country right now. As flattering as that is, does it ratchet up the pressure to meet an audience’s expectations, or top yourselves every time you take the stage?
JB: We’re not really concerned with being the kind of professional band that tops itself. I think the band will lose what’s real about it if that were the case. It’s got to be fun and stay fun. We all want to be able to change up the show at the drop of a hat.
SC: Professionalism comes from being comfortable on stage. The worst thing is when you’re seeing bands that are trying so hard to impress you that it has the opposite effect. All their interaction with the crowd is insincere, and they’re running around and stressing each other out, trying too hard to turn it into a Ricky Martin show.
JG: We should be able to walk up on any stage, anywhere, play using other people’s gear, and still rock the crowd. That’s a good live band.
