Happy Music Monday!
It’s time to get UP CLOSE & PERSONAL with….
Today I have a special interview with a band all the way from NEW YORK. Now, I have never personally met these guys…but from what I can tell, I would definitely want to hang out with them! Their music provides such a FUN vibe and it makes you want to get up and dance!
If you listen to bands like The Wombats or The Killers….you will definitely be into SECRET WEAPONS!
Now, I got to interview DANNY from Secret Weapons, and well…..you guys get to hear about some stuff that I didn’t even know before conducting this interview!
So here you go!
Here is my interview with…
What type of music do you guys play?
A pinch of rock, a dash of pop, a touch of 80’s soul.
When did you guys become a band?
We started writing under the cover of darkness in 2014. We wrote and rehearsed in secret for about a year until Secret Weapons was born.
Who’s original idea was it to create the band?
Gerry and I have had this vision for a long while. We never quite knew what it would look like, we just knew something was ready to burst…
Why the name Secret Weapons?
It fit SO perfectly – we were writing in secret, we were rehearsing in secret, no one knew what we were doing or where we went. Our music was our secret weapon.
Which is the most fun song for you to perform?
Who inspires you?
Everyone and everything.
Who are you main music influences?
Too many to ever name, but to get started on the insurmountable task – Tears for Fears, The Killers, Cyndi Lauper, ABC….
If you could collaborate with anyone who would it be?
It depends on who you ask. For me?(Danny) Meatloaf. I can feel Gerry smiling and shaking his head in disbelief…
What’s next for you guys?
We’ve been writing like maniacs! We’re excited to officially launch the project in the fall and get our music out to the world.
Both Danny and Gerry seem like super awesome dudes and I would absolutely LOVE to watch them perform live sometime! Who wants to fly me to New York?! haha
Anyways, the band is pretty cool right?!
Well here are their links to everything social media!
