Where from?: Philly raised but residing in Portland, Oregon now after a long stint in hell, I mean Florida.
Been to JC before?: Yes :0 Lifer. We got a call from a friend of ours years ago that said, this is happening... you need to call and book your your cabin on this day and the rest is history.... we raged Miami phish then got on the s.s. minnow for a rough and wild ride on the tiniest and oldest working cruise ship in Florida. Our room was actually really nice.. all brass and mahogany with a really large balcony but the rest of the boat left much to be desired. You know who does not bitch about the food on Jamruise?... the folks that went on Jamcruise 1 or 2
What do you do for a living/for fun?: I sell mixed media advertising for trade associations to pay my bills and travel around the country to see live music to play. A year in my world looks something like this: Jam Cruise, Mardi Gras, Aura, Vegas, JazzFest, Vegas, Oregon Country Fair, Northwest String Summit, SCI @ Hornings, Colorado, Bear Creek, Jam Cruise....... and in between, my husband works to bring our favorite bands to Portland.
Life is good.
and most importantly, music: Oh hell yes. all of it. except widespread panic. widespread panic sucks.
Play any instruments?: nope
Favorite bands/artists?: currently, If asked to put something on it would probably be ... Orgone, M4MB, UM, GAT, Lettuce, Shorty, NMS, Robert Walter, the Avetts, Foster the people (yeah, I like indie rock too.. I told ya that I love all music) or the dead.
Finally, what is it about music that brought you here?: You can find music like this anywhere.. festivals are a dime a dozen... it is the people that keep me here. It is the friends that I made on that first boat and every other trip after that that bind me to this ship and provide me with so much love long after the last note stops playing and we pull into port.
