Who are you and what do you do? 

      Andrew Laubacher, Drummer

Where are your musical influences from? 

P-Funk, Matt Chamberlin, Jay Bellerose, Erykah Badu, and Pete Rock are all pretty big influences on me.

What is one of your favorite songs? 

Love Ain't Enough by the Barr Brothers

Are there any songs that have a personal story behind it? 

Almost all of our songs have a personal story behind them. Some are obvious, others more subtle. It's always great hearing how fans interpret our music.

 Any fun band stories to share from the road?

 I watched a person try and steal a beer truck from the festival grounds. The guy managed to make it up the hill and smash through the fence, but he definitely didn't think it through because he waited until the festival was over and then got stuck in traffic. He was promptly caught, but it was pretty entertaining to watch him try and zig zag through a roadway that had become a parking lot. 

Fun Questions

If you were stuck on an abandoned island what 5 items would you want with you? 

  • Drumset
  • Drumsticks
  • SpeedBoat
  • Gasoline
  • Compass

If you could meet any music legend living or dead who would that be? 

 I'd love to talk with Steve Jordan. He is a bad ass drummer with feel for days.

If you could travel back in time where would you go?

 I'd go back to that festival and watch that guy drive through the fence again
