Five Year Mission – Shore Leave
This is one great 5 man band. Lumpy was lucky enough to catch up with them in this year at Gen Con 2014 and can’t wait to see the Gen Con regulars again next year.
The members of the band are:
Noah Butler – Guitar/Bass/Keys/Vocals/Songwriter
Andy Fark – Percussion/Songwriter
Patrick O’Connor – Guitar/Bass/Keys/Vocals/Songwriter
Mike Rittenhouse – Guitar/Bass/Keys/Vocals/Songwriter
Chris Spurgin – Guitar/Bass/Keys/Vocals/Songwriter
Perfect for Gen Con, A Star Trek Themed Quintet
While I am into Star Trek, these five men take it to a higher level. Not only did they form a band which pledged to do one song for each episode in the original series which, quoting Fark, “Is one song plus a whole butt-load more” but they also are insanely popular to the point where they just returned from playing the Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas. I confess that I felt a tad jealous when I heard they got to meet William Shatner.
Indie Nation listeners, I am thrilled to announce that Gen Con 2014 has granted our station press passes for what is usually considered the biggest gaming con in the country. We will be there to cover gaming, music and more. I can not tell you how honored and please we all are.
