SHANE'S Q&A SESSION
I normally prepare for gigs by putting on some Motown. Lets get the groove going!
What's your favourite song that Jukebox performs and why?
I have a few favourite’s, but I would say ‘Get Lucky’ could have me grooving all night long!
What song would you like to see Jukebox perform?
‘Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough’
If you could work with one musician dead or alive, who would it be? And you can only choose one!
I think as a trumpet player, mine comes across quite obvious, but I admire this guys arranging skills, not only his impeccable trumpet abilities. I would choose Maynard Ferguson.
What do you do outside of Jukebox?
I work as a composer/arranger for various different groups & ensembles, but I’m also quite into photography.
What's your favourite part of a Wedding?
Well being a musician, I personally love seeing people dance & have a great time.
Your now involved with the Jukebox Instagram account, what can we expect from jukebox_photos in 2014?
Censored images of Simon and photos of all the brilliant venues we play at and the lovely people we meet!
In your opinion what's the best thing about Jukebox and how do we differ from your normal function bands?
The big thing that stands out to me, is the band just has love for each other & for performing! There’s so much energy!
What are you looking forward to most with Jukebox in 2014?
Summer & performing with great friends, what more could you want?
