Backstage at the Norton Center with Brian from the Dublin Guitar Quartet

1. VERY FEW PEOPLE KNOW THAT WE… also perform as an electric guitar quartet.

2. WHEN WE’RE NOT ON TOUR WE… Watch Game of Thrones, True Detective, House of Cards, The Walking Dead, Boardwalk Empire…

3. WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT OUR ART IS… Hearing a transcription realized for the first time.

4. A LIFE LESSON WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH CENTRE COLLEGE STUDENTS IS: Don’t ask 30/20-somethings to share life lessons!

5: I DEFINE ART AS: Behavioral neurologist Vilayanur S. Ramachandran is the guy to ask about this. His book The Emerging Mind (2005) is a good place to start. 

6. OUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT IN SHOW BUSINESS THUS FAR WAS: Calling into Philip Glass’ house in New York. Touring Colombia was fun too.

7. IF WE COULD BE ON STAGE WITH ANYONE, PAST OR PRESENT, ALIVE OR DECEASED, FICTIONAL OR REAL, IT WOULD BE: Chris Farley.

8. WHILE TOURING, ONE OF OUR GUILTY PLEASURES IS:  having increased pride in our instagram account.

9. IF I COULD ENSURE THAT THE AUDIENCE TAKES HOME ONE THING AFTER OUR PERFORMANCE, IT WOULD BE: Pat’s little airport travel bag. It’s kind of nerdy and feminizing on him and I’m sick of looking at it.
