How old were you when you starting playing music and what was it you first played?

I was 12 years old when i first started playing the tuba and my first teacher was band teachers for horns. Other then that I was self taught. I’ve been involved in music in one form or another since then, so… 36 years now.

What band are you in and what do you play in it?

I play Bass and sing with local party band Code Red.

What made you choose the bass?

I’m lazy and only want one note at a time so the bass fits my personality.

What other Instruments do/can you play?

I was a professional tuba player in the marines. Besides bass and tuba, I can also play piano, French horn, bass trombone, euphonium, bass drum and bass cowbell.

What other bands have you been a part of?

Code Red is my second band. Before that, it was a band (mostly) garage band called Saint Krampus. We had one gig… and broke up.

Who were your biggest influences?

All over the place. Rock, blues, classical, jazz, swing, symphonic, etc. Since I’m currently in a rock band. I’ll talk about those. There are so many great artists out there… Iron Maiden, Foo Fighters, Black Sabbath, Pantera, Dream Theater, Rage Against The Machine, Rush, Kiss, Motley Crue, Stevie Ray Vaughan… way to many to list, but definately more in the hard rock/metal arena.

What do you think about the local musicians?

Of the musicians I am aware of, I know that there is a ton of talent out there and I feel very fortunate to be mixed into the thick of it. There are so many local musicians that we don’t ever hear or see, for one reason or another. I’d love to be able to spend the time to check them all out. Doing so helps me become better doing what I do.

If you could sit in with any other local band who would it be?

Definately Satin Love Orchestra playing bass or trombone.

What do you love most about what you do?

Easy! All the people. Fans, dancers, other musicans.

Is there anything else you would like to say about yourself or your music?

I’m a nerd through and through. I get involved in the technical aspect of sound and light way more then my own instrument. I love hearing what other bands are doing… love going to catch other band’s shows and support the music scene beyond my own band when I can.

The music scene is thriving in the region and I’m so happy and feel very fortunate to be a part of it!

Thank you Mark Nash!

Unfortunately due to a scheduling mishap Mark Nash and Code Red won’t be playing this weekend but will be back in our 3 W schedule next weekend.

April fools day just passed and I was reminded about the time that my oldest daughter then about 13, now a mother of 7 herself decided to try the old sugar in the salt shaker April fools trick on me.  It worked of course better then she would have thought. The salt shaker was untouched until about a week later when I used it on a cup~o~noodle, by then she had totally forgotten about April fools day and when I took that first sugary bite and looked at her and said wow my noodles taste so sweet, she all of a sudden remembered why and started to laugh, then realized she had just shook the same salt shaker onto her own noodles ha ha ha April Fools!

Have a wonderful weekend and as always please don’t drink and drive.

Happy Easter!

See ya next time, BJ

Oregon F.B.I. Files

 

Portland OR – Local, state, and federal law enforcement authorities (F.B.I.) are seeking information on the whereabouts of Anthony James Martinis, 41, who is wanted for his alleged connection to a series of bank robberies in Washington and Oregon. A warrant for his arrest has been issued out of Cowlitz County, Washington. Authorities are seeking the public’s help in locating Martinis and warn that Martinis is likely to rob again.

Martinis is a white male, 6’2” tall, around 250 pounds of medium build, and with blue eyes. His short, possibly graying hair has been seen in a variety of cuts, sometimes resembling a military or slightly Mohawk style.

Anyone with information as to the identity or whereabouts of Martinis should refrain from approaching him and is urged to contact law enforcement immediately.

Given the successive locations of six bank robberies possibly linked to Martinis, authorities believe that it is likely he will rob banks in the states between Oregon and Arizona. Information developed in the investigation suggests Martinis could possibly be heading toward Arizona.

The bank robber believed to be identified as Martinis has robbed at least six banks: three in Washington State over 10 days and three in Oregon over two days.
