Space Age Rock’n Jazz Sh$t
What has been your most memorable show so far?
Every Lil Indies gig is a blast, killer vibe and always an experiment.
Which local band is your favorite one to play a show with?
Absinthe Trio. They are killer musicians and our friends. Always a good time.
What description gets used for your band that you would most
like to correct people on? Why?
“Jazz Band” Yes, it is impossible to avoid using the word "jazz" when describing our music, but to us, any music can be jazz music. We just think that can easily turn people off before hearing us.
What’s your favorite thing about being an Orlando band? What's your least favorite? Why?
Favorite: A lot of great musicians that live and work here you may not even know about.
Least Favorite: Not enough venues to support live music, especially music that may not be geared towards what we may consider a pop-minded audience.
Any big news to share?
We are going to release our first album in the next few months, we are so stoked to have something to share with everyone!
