What is a piece of advice he would give to local and as a sound guy deals with a lot of local rock and roll bands what it's like a key piece of advice. You would give to a band coming from the main sound guy oh quarters down that the acting like this is something that. Talk about. Mean p.'s advice for local bands don't suck. Don't sack. Now I mean it's an amateur it's inevitable that you're gonna go through a learning curves your share and I encourage. Fans to get out there and playing music and you know we all started somewhere.

Into your gear and your craft focus on your craft a correct yes all right so. There we go Ryan one of the main sound guys from a core zone he is the one. Actually no you can't catch and they don't have any show lined up they just played at hard rock. Don't concede how was your hard rock experience gas.

You better be in sleep Caribbean and this idea at the got to go to school would use the equipment than what you get at exactly equal and you don't want to meet. With the current. Here's a question I like to ask some fans because I can potentially be embarrassing or you know you can flex your music knowledge or whatever. Think back to you when you were first getting into music. And you've the first album that you actually purchased on your own weather BC DE a vinyl tapes however old you are whatever I ain't judging. The weather what physical. Album you actually purchased on your own and this isn't something that was given to you by a friend or like the cool older brother the mom the one you actually buy yourself some jobless start with you. All right Aaron member. Got zealots 2009. Ounce before he did he was he DD yes Huff daddy Lula. Daddy and very sick song called come with me yeah grip stuff LED's that you know Led Zeppelin the and I had a habit so that was good victory for that car to find a dollar bills in the accounting quarters and that go into the target. Attempt the single I got a little bump this up on that intimacy is basically trashed yeah young kids though. Shout out god zoo with a thousand soundtrack and what about you man good man. Though. No I don't know I'm at know that Israel and have an. I'm I had two records that I've Ares specifically remember like thinking is needed them all ago. It was. Eiffel 65. I'm Abu dab I had. Yeah I'm the one below that like the rest of the CD it's actually full of bankers like I don't of those that style anymore. Center and at all. Play too much of and then. And I got into the outer lighted at night and today it's. Oregon that is that and the and by the state airplanes yeah I remember hearing like the radio singles. And you know they take Elvis wearing out the Adams song is showed oppressing varies. The armament Graham mom's sister and my mom went to that they'll square and LV together and I convince them lightly need to go into the music store I went and bought the CD OK so excited I've played it and it was nothing but curse words on the ground look. Horrified. What do I get this he. That's funny and then later on your likened to Lacey Tina death metal Michael is like Nora Lee. Stuff and you know that's that's the what got you into the ranks and the success that when he suited him. And what about your eye and men that feel like you have a pretty funny story here yes. The first piece of music that I bought on my down. I was in I think like second grade and had this little cassette I can't remember what I got first the cassettes of the boom box but. We here at a garage sale and bought. They had like a boxing cassettes for like fifty cents and it randomly bought cool in the game yeah and cooler Atlantic record it was about cool and the gang. Minute by. BG's. Is that. This picture and did they get so tight guys now that I literally have like. Choreographed. Dance O clock up hey you know I was like I staying like I know I like love showing that off of the Czech government moves to the song. Maybe I don't know I gotta tell us yes I did as they do it like a little bit like the sprinkler Erica oh you know home money is an idea yeah. So I and then I think after that I got I remember. Specifically I got Papa Roach yen down in fast come highlighted pieces and I got it right before a road trip. And all I cared about was what's the single called last resort last resort. All I care of that song for the whole like three hour drive that was on I'd just played last as. On repeat for like three hours straight. So shut out pro beach Coby Dick Jacoby she addicts. And Sony could MTV start it. Are we got home team here in studio we got a couple more songs from their albums called better off. We got Jack of all trades in something to hold onto after that will be talking more with them it's a home team here among local. And Diana. I. So. To. We'll tell. You've thousand. At all. If you've felt. The loud and local continue. Eight years 99.9. KI ESW. Back here a loud and local home team hanging out with us tonight. Fedorov is the name of their new album it was released in July you know these guys are local boys and it's it's awesome to see guys doing so well you've been around for what six years now. Jesus yeah out like five we started you there's this like five years ago five years ago that's awesome well congratulations on all the success you guys. I'm kind of curious what's the what's the next step for you guys it has taken a little break from playing shows you guys gonna be. Write some new material or just taking a break in and what's the rest of the year look like for you guys. So got a tour coming up in November that hasn't been announced yet OK you're gonna West Coast or on the 22 and a half weeks in like after Thanksgiving. An and next year just tour is everywhere nice a lot of stuff planned for a Tony in nineteen cool concert and hit the full yet. At the whole US a couple of times. That's the but the big thing next year's going to be a year just grinding in the road. And me in the middle of that to just writing writing writing just keep on an island and how about Europe how about overseas any any plans for that. Media eventually that Alia call. Table next to you yet seen it you'll and you'll see how the first six months ago. But throw in the US but it. T going back going to Europe are going to roster that would be. So sick to Nestle. I start to cut you off but I feel like you guys are in this in between right now where you like your band is getting more successfully more successfully doing a lot of tours. But it's probably to the point where I mean you guys have families. How do you guys maintain like you know like being able to pay rent and then also being able to go watch forty guys have jobs that are like flexible and Finley lies flexible support that. So we work at least gain on network line Mike marketing and stuff like that so okay we kind of pick up locked contract based outselling the case. You know this spring and wanna come for like a month or two in the northwest and needs them to represent the brain is different festivals stuff like that jurors and gain level and help along with that get paid you know for two months and after that contract is done like okay. Zip up enough money we could pay rent you pay for food and ensure view and then we can hit the road you know hard. OK and then I'm actually all three of us are set up to drive for lift tonight lets us a huge sting if you want like succeed in the music industry. Just having like it and if it's night and I'm. Like I haven't driven and you know a couple months. But like it's always there as an option ball back exactly so if we ever you know if we have to go out on tour next week. And I know I need to make cash right now have to quit my job. You know I could just go out and drive lift for four hours in just make as much money is and as I need to like immediately that's the best part about it. Would you ever consider taking that tour bus as a lift clean driving people around while with the no I am I thought about it be that get on the very guys that they. I thought about it like we have bonds in the back. It's also weird to override a little to pull a trailer and everything one star smelled like true. It. Well anyways it and then Ryan your sound guy so yeah they they understand music and in industry exactly am I jobs cool about our equipment rather we side jobs as well I work for both John in the annual Coca marketing programs. Just having a flexible lifestyle I think in and lots of support from Angelina and it's still really hard to do you you know com.
