Well, so, it’s April 20th. You do the math. Lost Keys are commemorating the occasion with a special installment of their Wednesday night Cellar Door residency. The great Jordan Miller, who plays drums for the group, reached out earlier this week to get us hip to what they have in store for tonight. In turn, we thought we’d throw him five questions to help explain what the band plans to offer on this holiday evening. It sounds like it’s going to be a burning good time (get it … get it?!). The fun starts at 9 p.m. Hey, if nothing else, you know you’ll need some food. Check it out!
First, how has the residency at The Cellar Door been going?
It’s been going smoothly! We’ve got a regular crowd and as the weather is getting warmer, we’re seeing a lot more new faces each week.
So, what is going to make this a special Wednesday at The Cellar Door for you guys?
This Wednesday is special because it’s the first time were doing stripped down, mellow acoustic sets. We’ll also be debuting some new material, and at the end of the night, we’ll have one electric set to kick things up!
Do you have any surprises in store that you could give us hints about?
We’ve always got surprises. We love surprises, big fans. However, you can’t give too many hints or it ruins the surprise! Let’s just say we’ve got some unique takes on some cool tunes and some interesting arrangements for these acoustic songs that’ll give our performance a different vibe, and we think it will enhance anyone’s time who’s into the whole holiday thing.
Where are The Lost Keys now as a group? Any plans to record soon?
Lost Keys are keeping busy! It’s going to be a good year for us. We’ve added Stefan Sandman on bass which really brings everything together and it has helped push us into some new territories. Luckily for us, I have a recording studio, Gypsy Cab Studios, where we are in the early stages of recording our first album! Look forward to some sweet tunes sometime this summer.
And finally, if you were to sell Wednesday night’s event in one sentence, what would it be?
An evening of unadulterated musical combustion, whose eternal flames have cooled overnight on the threshold of human consciousness to reach the perfect temperature for recreational consumption.
