BAND AFFILIATION: Tern Rounders
INSTRUMENT: Vocals, Guitar

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … Well, I didn’t actually make this purchase myself, but I must have been about six years old, and I vividly remember begging my dad to buy me the Beatles’ song “Do You Want to Know A Secret.” At that time, we couldn’t find it as a single, so he ended up buying me the full-length vinyl album “Please, Please Me,” which was awesome because I loved every song on that album.

It has been restored, and you can read it here.

The final day of last weekend’s three-day Truck America Festival, held at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian may have been light in people, but it was loaded with spirit.

As a member of the Albany-based Tern Rounders, I felt very fortunate to have been invited to be one of the three Capital Region bands (along with We Are Jeneric and Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned) to participate in the festival – fortunate and a bit nervous too, not knowing what to expect from playing at a brand new music festival. Regardless, last Sunday couldn’t have been a better day for a drive down to the Catskills, with the sun beaming a summer preview.

We were anxiously anticipating what we would find there. Hundreds of people? Big amphitheater stages? Crowds so big they ran out of food?
