ARTIST: Kansas Bible Company
SONG: “Witches & Wizards”
BIRTHDATE: The dog days of fall 2008. We started out as a mere 7-piece band full of young college hooligans who didn’t know much better. Come 2010 we expanded to our current 11-man unit.
BIRTHPLACE: Goshen College in Goshen, Indiana.
AMBITIONS: We’d love to pay our personal bills and get paid to play music on the road.
TURN-OFFS: 11-man van rides in the peak of the summer, butt-rock.
TURN-ONS: Horn sections, odd time signatures, food, Gorillaz, unlimited bar tabs for 11-man bands.
DREAM GIG: Vegas lounge or cruise ship house band gigging at least 25 dates a month. Or doing that and only playing Chicago songs.
MY GO-TO FEEL-GOOD RECIPE: Wheatgrass shots and neti-pots.
PREFERRED MODE OF TRANSPORTATION: Our van in non-extreme weather.
WHAT MAKES A WOMAN SEXY: She digs monster riffs and horn bands.
5 THINGS EVERY MAN SHOULD OWN: Rocky I-V
WORDS TO LIVE BY: Live long and prosper.
I WROTE THIS SONG: Carl wrote it back in 2008, released it on a solo EP in 2010, then the band worked out our rendition in 2012. Who knows what will happen to it in 2014?
