The Interstellar Boys are first and foremost borne from a collection of friendships. Musical friendships that date back as far as 30 years. Todd Nance, Daniel Hutchens, Jerry Joseph, Sam Holt, John Neff and Jon Mills have shared stages and songs over the years and now form a new band that draws on those decades of collaboration. Todd Nance brings undeniable experience and depth to the band as a founding member/drummer/songwriter of Widespread Panic.
Imagine lying down and bobbing slightly on a floating chaise lounge surrounded by southern California sunshine and different shades of light azure maybe with your favorite beverage by your side. The only thing on your mind is nostalgia and the patterns in the clouds. A gentle breeze is blowing and the smell of a grill is wafting past your nose and mixing with the coconut scented sunscreen you are wearing. The sounds and sonorousness you may be imagining next is the intention of Poolside.
The Motet started as a band the exact year that I moved to Boulder, 1998. I used to see members busking in the streets or see Jamie Janover playing the dulcimer on Pearl St. entertaining tourists and making a few bucks. Now, Jamie runs one of the most transcendental music festival in the country, Sonic Bloom and plays in Zilla, and the Motet is on a nationwide tour tearing up the country.
