That's what that was.
That's what that was. It was really interesting. I mean Bill and I sit in on multiple sets throughout the blues jams, I would say for several months and we got to know one another and we just started talking about a band, putting a band together.
I know it's something that I wanted to do. I'd been on the scene basically bouncing from one open mic, one blues jam to another, two or three a week for over a year, just shining it up, getting ready to do what This is what I wanted to do. I know sometimes I would meet up with Bill on a Sunday and we would be at Sully's blues jam and it was so loud we'd have to duck into the supply closet to get our thoughts out. It was the only place where you could talk. We're not getting any younger, so let's do this.
This is what Bill said. Now, where did the Oh man I just had it. It's one of those lost my frame of thought moments. You guys, the band formed and then you came together and when did it become a, okay we're going to record and album and we're going to put this out now. This wasn't until, I would say two years after we had gotten together and started making our rounds, you know our rounds within the DMV.
We had already traveled out to Nashville for an We performed at an amp show which was very exciting. We did that twice. I've been writing for years, however I was really shy to share my lyrics and I don't play an instrument but I know music I know what I like and what I wanted for the songs and so I took that leap of faith and brought in some lyrics.
The first lyrics I brought in were for circles and love hangover. Between the guys, they came up, they basically built on what I had, that the lyrics, and the little melody that I brought it. Let's do this oh no no no. I'm just counting it out. That's the way I write my songs. It worked, it worked. Where did music come in to How did music enter your lives? Where did it start for you guys? Probably the ventures in the early surf stuff growing up and then the British invasion, of course Jimmy Hendrix, Crane, bands that I saw.
My first concert was- Brian: When did you start playing? You've been at this for a lot of years then? Yeah, but I'm still a young man. This is your first album that's been released though?
I've been on a lot of other peoples' projects, but this is the first time I've put an album out. It's something that had a long time coming. That's right high five right there. I kept looking for the right group of people and by golly I think I've found them. Now Robbin what is your story with music? How did that start for you? I've been listening to music since I was a child.
My family, we love music. I'm dancing around in my socks in the living room with her. I've always wanted to perform, I just didn't have opportunity growing up and I was also very shy believe it or not. Were you singing growing up in out places?
Okay I got it, it's a church thing right, gotcha. Fast forward, young adult, still wanting to perform not able to, life happens, you get married you have children, those become the priority. I did not make music a priority. Now I'm an empty nester.
My kids are grown. All right you're a free woman now. You got a little bit of time to do some stuff like this. I relocated from Atlanta about six years ago with the company I'm currently working with and I found all this extra time I had on my hands and I said, okay I need to get out and get some music under my belt.
That's what I started doing. Now what about- Robbin: From one thing to another. What about outside, now outside of the music then, in your personal time, do you have any hobbies? What do you guys do outside of the music? Well I have the constant task of looking around for old guitars and musical instruments because that's what I've been doing- Brian: Say more about that, what do you mean?
Well, I started out with just amplifiers, would refurbish them and I did my first guitar show in in Dallas, Texas. These guys came around and looked at me booth full of amps and went, this is a guitar show what are you doing with all these amps? I said, look you guys are going to need to have amplifiers for those guitars that you're selling, so here I am. I look for old guitars and musical instruments of all stripes. Do you sell them?
What's the name of Is it a business? Yes it's called vintage sound. Vintage sound, so if they google vintage sound they will find what you're doing. Got it, that's cool and Robbin what about you? Outside of the music thing. What does that mean? Or go to live shows? Yes, I attend live shows. One of my favorite groups are the Gypsy Kings. One of my favorite groups outside of the soul blue genres I enjoy other genres as well, to include the likes of Bette Middler, Barbara Streisand.
I listen to it all, jazz and that's what I enjoy. I enjoy spending time with family and friends but believe it or not this past year I've been all consumed with the album, with the band, with, yeah. All right now last question I love to ask in these interviews is, if you could offer one piece of advice what would it be?
However you want to answer that, that one's open ended. I would say because we are a newly formed band together now, for a little over four years, I think that even though it's captain obvious to say communication is key, I can't stress that enough and I think it's easy to say oh no we're good, we're buds, we communicate. You need to have a point person within the band to make things run smoothly and I think that's, as far as having a band, that's what I would offer, and please don't give up.
Don't give up, I love it. Don't give up because it's I'm a new grandmother. I wanted to do this. My son, he told me, he says, "It's like you just woke up one day and decided oh I think I'll have a band. I said, "No, sweetie it wasn't like that. It's been a lot of years in the running, you just didn't know. For those listeners, now for listeners who want to find out more about you guys, where do they go to find out more about Vintage number 18?
Now you guys, is there a certain social media that you love more than the others?
