- So how long have you been playing music and how did you get into music?
- How long had you been playing when I met you over at Kevin Doyle’s infamous Swan Lake jam shack?
- Let’s take a moment to honor the Hush… These guys have some incredible talent and I love what they bring to your music, an energy and a fullness that you don’t see a lot these days. But beyond their talent the things I noticed is the names. What is up with the names? If there is a story please share it.
- I am a huge nickname guy so I love it but we’ve got you listed as “Thunderpappa” That one’s obvious so we can move on.
- Next is “The Captain” Mat Donaldson on the drums.
- I have always liked a guy who takes “Matt” and does it with one “T”.
- Then we have “Sledgehammer” Barrett Lewis – Ole 2 R’s 2 T’s Barrett.

- Many musicians find that one of the hardest things about being in charge of their own career is booking shows. How did you start getting gigs in the beginning and has that process changed at all through the years?
