Happy ‘I’mgoingtobelazyalldaytoday’ Sunday everyone! I meant to have this episode uploaded yesterday evening but totally forgot it was Thunder Over Louisville and I figured it would be best to wait more day so you all wouldn’t miss the upload! Now that Thunder is over you have no excuse not to listen, well, unless you are hung over then you get a pass.
Friday evening I had the pleasure of interviewing Jake Bonham of Dangerkids! Really talented musician/videographer but overall just a super cool dude! In fact when I saw them at Trixies with Galactic Empire I walked up to him after their set and was like, “Dude your mustache is on point!” and he was like, “NO, your mustache is awesome!” thus making us mustache bros!
Once we got over our mustache bonding experience we were just chit chatting about stuff and I remember asking him what type of music he listens to while on tour. I was quite surprised when he said, “You know the usual stuff, Adele, Beyonce, little bit of Shania Twain, Britney Spears, and of course my favorite band Behemoth!” Ok he didn’t say all that but he did say him and the rest of his band mates listen to podcasts. Which is when I brought up about how I had my own podcast and he thought that was pretty cool!
Several months went by and I watched from a far (godbless Instagram) as he uploaded more and more videos. I was thinking, “Holy cow these videos look amazing, how does he have time to do all of this?” Instead of wondering I just simply messaged him and asked him if he would like to be interviewed on the Whatcha Recording Willis Podcast.
In this interview we talked about how he started shooting videos, how Dangerkids started, what touring was like with Galactic Empire, Jake gives some tour tips, the story behind his mustache, and much much more!
