Amy Collins

Amy Collins

NAME: Amy Collins
BAND AFFILIATION: Amy & the Whomevers
INSTRUMENT: Guitar, vocals, bandmates’ heads

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … Oh god, I don’t want to admit this… It was Shaun Cassidy’s 1976 self-titled album. It came with a poster, and I am afraid to say I also bought the Da Doo Ron Ron T-shirt. (Can’t Nippertown edit this answer so that I look cooler?)

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … It was John Hartford in Manhattan Square Park in Rochester. My mom is an amazing musician and folk music lover, and she made sure we got a healthy dose of folk and roots music when we were growing up.

Katie Hammon

Katie Hammon

NAME: Katie Hammon
BAND AFFILIATION: Bear Grass / Slender Shoulders
INSTRUMENT: VOX, Guitar, Toy Glockenspiel, small piano riffs

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … mmmmm…I don’t really know. I wish I could say different, but I really don’t remember buying my first CD. It’s possible that it was the soundtrack to “A Walk To Remember” or some CD by Creed. Maybe Evan and Jaron? Hmmm… now I want to know. I’m sure it was something terrible. Maybe even the Backstreet Boys.

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … My sister knew the tour manager for Plus One, a Christian rock band that was big in Washington State. I don’t know if they made it anywhere else, but I’m assuming so since it was at some arena in the middle of nowhere. My best friend and I tagged along with my sister and some friends and screemed our lungs out like the little girls that we were.
