This is the story about a cover band. The unlikely duo of two friends who met in high school. Two strangers who bonded over a common love of music – 80’s music to be more precise. A chance encounter almost gone wrong all those years ago with a single answer to a single question initiated by the then stranger named Kevin.
“So what kind of bands do you like?”
The dreaded question of all time for any introverted teen. Unsure of whether or not to admit his true love of all things synth pop, Dan blurted out the one and only band that he could think of in that moment that would surely solicit acceptance, a band that was considered universally ‘cool’ by anyone who was anyone in 1989.
“Um, Def Leppard.”
This answer did not get the expected response. Kevin’s facial expression dropped and he simply replied,
“Oh, that’s cool. I like Erasure, OMD, Depeche Mode, New Order and, you know, bands like…”
Dan couldn’t believe what he was hearing. Another person actually liked all of his truly favorite bands and without hesitation he quickly interrupted,
“Me too! I love all those bands!”
And that was the beginning of a friendship that would endure three decades.
Now after thousands upon thousands of hours gone by over the years discussing artists, music and bands and going to concert after concert as teenagers, these two have recently joined forces once again to bring you their own musical renditions of some of the greatest songs ever written, some of their favorite tunes, by some of the greatest bands of all time.
So sit back, turn up your speakers and enjoy a few songs off of their debut EP, Big Sky Dr.
