There was a time when a big band would show up and it would phase us a little bit. “How are we going to fit 12 people inside of The Van? Do we have enough mics for this?” That’s not the case anymore. Now we don’t even bat an eye, as it’s all just standard procedure.

So when The Suffers showed up, horn section and all, we just smiled, showed them where the entrance to The Van was and let the magic do the rest. It was a good way to start a day, that much soul in the morning is a better breakfast than oatmeal, I will testify to that.
