My favorite memory of the past few years was when I studied abroad in France.
I am in two different bands. One is a cover band and the other one is original. The cover band is with some friends I know from a jazz class at UW-Madison. The class was taught by the famous bassist Richard Davis. He played on Van Morrison's Astral Weeks, Springsteen's Born to Run and Paul Simon's There Goes Rhyming Simon as well as a slew of other jazz records. The guitarist, Steven, does public policy in D.C. and the bassist, Mike, is working on his Ph.D. in New Mexico. Mike, Steve and I call ourselves Suburban Radiovolution and we had our first show in 2013 around Thanksgiving at the Grand Avenue Club. The original band is with a person I grew up knowing (Rusty) and a cousin of a friend of ours (Mike). We are called the Visis after the Visigoths; they are a Germanic tribe that settled what is present day Spain. Rusty works as at Anodyne as well as is going to school at UWM to become a teacher and Mike works for Wheaton Franciscan. We have played around six shows so far and we are working on a new album. Here is our first recording:
We recently added a new member, Rob, on bass. He played some shows with Collections of Colonies of Bees and studied art at USC.
I enjoy seeing live music.
Family and friends are important to me.
I currently volunteer for Slow Food WISE.
Hopefully, you can learn more about what is going on in my life if we get to know each other.
