@JamminJavaMei's Q&A With Start Making Sense

Start Making Sense

Start Making Sense are a very cool Talking Heads tribute band. They're here Thursday night! The Talking Heads were one of the most innovative groups of the 70s and 80s. Start Making Sense does an incredible job of recreating the sound and vibe! Check out the video below. Tickets are on sale now here.


Where and when was your first show?

Oh that's a funny one, February 20th at a local bar in our hometown of Bethlehem PA. We had never played a note together as a band, so the "show" was technically a rehearsal, however, word got out In town and we wound up playing for about 150 highly energetic people. Was just a little taste, you know, just to see what it tastes like....

What is one of your most memorable or off-the-wall touring experiences?

Hmmm.  well some of them are probably unsuitable for print, but there are a few we can share.   At a festival in upstate NY things got quite hairy when Jon lost the keys to the rental car.  When AAA finally opened the car, the alarm went off for about 10 minutes, directly behind the stage while a band was playing. This turned into a 9 hour ordeal with half of the band sitting in the rain while Jon assisted a lock smith in tearing the back seat out of the car to get to our guitars which were stored in the trunk. Now everyone has a key to the van. Steven got quite tipsy one time at a private event in Philadelphia and was quite confrontational with the security guard as we were leaving. ....we could go on, but you get the idea
