10 Questions With… Red Red Rockit
1] Introduce us to the band. Endearing nicknames, embarrassing stories, and alternative facts are welcome.
Jonn Smith: Lead vox, lead bass. The one & only.
Jared Egan: Lead guitar, b. vox. Wanted man in Connecticut.

Having Tad McKitterick (of Sidewalk Driver) in the band tends to help but you can compensate by just turning up the volume.

But our favorite is probably Sidewalk Driver. Great rhythm section.
