Mark and I had the great pleasure of meeting for the very first time all members of the COUSIN JOHN BAND. What a great bunch of guys they were too! We were joined by (going left to right on the above photo) Dave O’Brien, Tim Howe, John Mobley and Joe Goltz, who all joined us from their studio in Washington D.C. They already had me sussed out way before the show started and they knew all about me filling up the harddrive during a show! Today was no exeption and as always I had so much I wanted to find out about the band, however now that the show is only an hour long I have to squeeze as many questions in as I can, so I have to talk a lot lol The bossman, Mark is always on my back, moving the show along lol. The whole interview was lots of fun and we really enjoyed chatting with them all, even if Tim was not happy about being sent off on a deserted island! Tim, I promise, you will be rescued one day!!!! Here is the link for the show : http://www.wwirradio.com/home/2014/06/24/episode-151-with-the-cousin-john-band/
During the hour long show, we featured three songs by the COUSIN JOHN BAND including one called BROKEN HEART TATOO whichalso happens to be the title of their latest CD. There is an official video to this song that shows the lead singer John Mobley being tattoed by tattoo artist Tina Marie, from TANTRIC TATTOO BOUTIQUE in Sandy Spring MD http://www.tantrictattoo.com/ John related the story behind the song and the tattoo, which is dedicated to his sister that passed away two years ago. A really lovely song, with meaningful lyrics, a wonderful memorial to his sister Sarajane. You can check out the video from this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOs4OFlGKwE
