NAME: Mateo Vosganian
BAND AFFILIATION: Wild Adriatic
INSTRUMENT: Drums

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … The first record I ever bought with my own money was a cassette tape of Marshall Crenshaw’s self-titled album. My dad, being a musician and huge music fan himself, had introduced me to Marshall Crenshaw from a very early age, and subsequently I’ve always had an attachment to his music.

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … Styx and REO Speedwagon at the Glens Falls Civic Center. Like I said… Dad was a big music head and hailed from Chicago, so when these two bands from his hey-day came through, he had to bring me to show me “how it’s done.”

3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … My father’s ’60s Rogers Drumset. Still the most beautiful drumkit I’ve ever seen/played. My first kit that I owned was a Premier Cabria bought from a tiny music shop down the road from my childhood house. That kit took me through several tours with my first high school band.
