What to love about playing in Bend: I love that music is constantly flowing in Bend. Bend is quickly becoming a little magnet for musicians. There are so many incredible players that live here I find myself constantly busy playing with many folks. I grew up in Redmond in the late '90s through the early teens. I've watched the music scene grow and die many times over. It used to be a lot harder to find places to play. We would buy generators and take our sound systems out to the woods to have punk shows out on BLM land or rent Grange halls in order to have places to perform.

Favorite Central Oregon venue: My two favorite venues to play in Central Oregon are the Volcanic Theatre for the sound and vibe, and the Domino Room for the history I've had with that room. It was the first real music venue I got to play at when I was 16, just getting Larry And His Flask started.
