Kollective soul

By CHRIS CONTI  |  August 12, 2009

After hearing The Kollective debut, one might be stumped as to accurately describe (or pigeonhole) the overall sound. "Just serve the song, not the genre," Giusti declared. Hansen confidently elaborated.

"I can tell you what we're not — we're not a one-trick pony," he said. "We're like a movie without the obvious visual. If the truth had many faces, we'd be Lon Chaney. People who come to our shows will have a window into our lives and feel welcomed as our company," Hansen said.

As for the much-ballyhooed lack of live venues for local acts, veteran drummer Bob Giusti just doesn't see it.

"We don't have any complaints," he said. "You've got to make your own scene. You have to give people something to leave their couch and home theater set-up for."
