What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : Matt Berry grew up and still lives in Germantown, MD and Andy Hamburger lives in Takoma Park, MD and both play and have played with tons of bands and artists (Cover and Original) in the DC area!
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: Berry hates highways and traffic with a passion and he is a master at finding back roads around the city.
Berry can also be seen frequenting Blues Alley as he is a huge Jazz fan.
Andy has probably played in every single live music venue in the city...seriously.
At one show, Everhart had his jacket stolen and had to have someone drive an hour into the city at 2am to get him his spare keys. It was also, February so he was freezing!!
Berry played a show with Derek Evry at the Black Cat and was told he couldn't park at the club so he took 30 min to find a parking spot with just enough time to get his gear on stage and immediately play the show. As he stepped onto the stage, he ripped his pants from the thigh all the way up. Played the show, had a hot dog and a beer and went home!
