here ya go Bob let me know if you have any more questionsthanks, Manasseh
Who are you?We are a bunch of friends traveling through the world making music, and making new friends everywhere we go. We have drums, bass, guitars, sometimes more….we are mainly something that was created in your own mind to entertain yourself while you wait for the inevitable.
Where are from? (originally/now)members are born in Western Massachussettes, San Francisco Califonia, Portland Oregon, Zimbabwe, Inglewood California, Bakersfield, California all ending up in the bay area. Our base is now in Oakland.
What do you do?We combine elements of classic rock, americana, soul, R&B, w/ classic old skool country and attempt to put a modern twist on the whole thing.
Why do you do what you do?Well its not a simple question but here goes…..if we don’t play music all the little children will go deaf from the crap their parents can’t let go of. The parents will tell them to do simple tasks, like taking out the trash, or cleaning their room, but the children wont hear them they will only hear a Janis Joplin song pounding in their heads. This will in turn scare the children and they will start taking drugs they don’t understand and finally turn to fake music to go with their fake drugs. We can’t let this happen people.
What are you working on?getting to San Francisco by 10am, but most likely by 10:30am….beyond that we are tracking demos for some rich people who want to buy our souls and sell them at a fair price.
What’s next?We all play music in a million different projects…so we always stay busy. To always know what’s next for Fleeting Trance we have a website www.fleetingtrance.com We check it ourselves to find out what we are going to be doing.
When will you be here? With who?We will be there on Tuesday, March 28th @ Six Rivers Brewery w/ Stereo Chromatic & Koozito @ 8pm
Who’s that?Stereo Chromatic hooked us up with the show they are a local band in Humboldt county, Koozito is Craig Koozer, a member of Fleeting Trance that has a new record out, he is an amazing songwriter. He used to play in a band called SkipLoader and they were signed to Geffen Records, touring w/ the Foo Fighters and many great acts as such.
Anything else you want to add?yes I like humboldt county a great deal and I’m excited to be playing there again. We’ve done a bunch of shows in Redway and a few shows in Eureka & Arcata and we have always been treated nice by the locals. so hi and thank you to anyone who knows us : )
