What's your hometown(s) and how long has the group been in Savannah?
Garrett Deming was born and raised in upstate New York, while Paul Burba is originally from central Connecticut. While we've been a band for five years, we've been in Savannah for a little over a year.
Who are some of your influences?
Our musical influences range from the great classic rock bands of the '60s and '70s (Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Doors, Deep Purple) to old-timey blues (John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf), and we're also heavily influenced by heavier bands from the '90s on (The Deftones, Alice In Chains, Lamb Of God, Pantera). We also have quite a few tunes with literary references, including Arthur Miller, Kurt Vonnegut, Elie Wiesel, James Joyce, Joseph Conrad and Edgar Allen Poe.
Describe your sound in three words.
Grunge plays blues.
What are some of your favorite Savannah venues to perform at and why?
The Wormhole is our favorite spot in town.
Jeff, who runs the sound and basically the whole place, has taken a lot of care in crafting the sound system to the room, and he holds two weekly open mics with a full band backline. It's great to be able to just show up and plug in, and all styles are welcome.
Garrett also enjoys doing acoustic music at The Sentient Bean.
What's in the future?
The sky is the limit. We've played all kinds of stages, from dingy basements to the Gramercy Theater in NYC ... One thing that has remained constant is our perseverance through adversity.
Expect new recordings sometime this winter, as well as a whole mess of fresh artwork, video projects and new material.
Anything else people should know?
We moved from Brooklyn to Savannah because we got tired of the hassle that is living in NYC, and to focus on the things that are truly important to us.
We're psyched to be here in Savannah, and we encourage anybody who likes to rock to come out and get weird with us! Keep it loose, play it tight.
