What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : Northern Virginia

At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: 1- All songs were written, recorded mixed by the aforementioned Duo. All instruments for this record were played by aforementioned duo. 

2- This project started because Mike wanted to play some drums. Then we had a 12 song record. 

3- The only time mike has ever seen Rich angry was the first gig they played together. The venue was this strange restaurant owned by an ex Pittsburgh Steeler outside of Philadelphia. The manager kept bumping our time and finally Rich had enough. We had only been playing together a month. Mike has lost his S@&T numerous times throughout their career so It is never really shocking to Rich. . .

Anything else we should know, or you want to share: Rich and Mike come from the DC band the Jones. This is their side project
