10 Questions With… Barns
1] Introduce us to the band. Endearing nicknames, embarrassing stories, and alternative facts are welcome.
Attention Attention we are Barns! Just a few guys from the woods who like to play with each-other in regards to music, and music only. This noise you will hear is made courteous of: “TT the Bear” aka Travis Tenney on drums. Chris Wolz aka “General Patton” on Bass. Brother Matt Wolz aka “Marty Mcfly” on guitar/vocals. And, our secret weapon and swing man Matt Repucci aka “Papa” on guitar/vocals as well. (Matt is not pictured in band photo. -anngelle)
Our most embarrassing moment was the day we were told the small spoon was for dessert only.
2] What makes for a compelling live performance?
Anytime someone gets naked.
3] What is the band’s pre-show ritual?
We like to arrive early, sip herbal tea, and discuss subjects of valor. Furthermore, we proceed with our guided meditation/positive affirmation circle, a few trust falls, followed by a 12 minute nap. But sometimes there’s traffic and we’re running late. Then we can’t find a parking spot so all of that goes out the window and we wing it.

Zip-Tie Handcuffs, Heltoro
