Interview By: Mandi of Hear That Tune Music
Set The Score is the pop/punk band hitting the scene out of Kissimmee, Fl.
"Hey its Josh, i play guitar and do vocals." "I'm hugo i play lead guitar." "Hey i'm Cam and I play bass and we're in set the score!"
You guy's are pretty young to have such a passion for what you're doing, how long have all of you been playing together?
We're are very passionate about what we do, we may be young but this is definitely what we love to do. We've been playing together for about a year, but we started Set the Score pretty recently.
Now 'Set The Score' where did that derive from, Is there a meaning behind it?
Set The Score came from hours of no sleep and an endless amount of messages between each other ha ha. We really wanted a name that described what we were about and its pretty much about how we try to set the score for music, we want to really impress people with what we do considering we are pretty young. We may be young but we definitely pack a punch ha ha
How do all of you balance performing and practice with school?
"school is a major priority so we start of with any work for school, and once we finish, that's when we head for 2 to 3 hour practices
(josh) "yeah we work hard so that we can work harder for our fans ha ha!"
Do you have a favorite place/venue that the band has gotten to perform at? And where is your fantasy venue that you would want STS to one day perform at?
"I'd say so far our favorite place we've played it is BackBooth in Orlando. It was a really great show for us, being able to get out there and play with some great bands. I would say though we hope to play at the House of Blues one day, its just one of those iconic venues. Every band plays there, and we've seen so many of our favorite bands play there. It would be great."
If you guy's could open for any touring band right now who would it be?
(josh) "i would say All Time Low or Blink 182"
(cam) "big time rush haha"
#1 song on your playlist right now?
(josh) "Girls do what they want by The Maine"
(cam) "The enemy by anthrax"
(hugo) "Life is just a fantasy, one of the songs off of our ep haha"
What is your long term goal for 'Set The Score' and what can we expect from STS in the near future?
"Touring the world is our long time goal, making music for everyone to hear, and just enjoying the world as people enjoy Set The Score.
I'd say you can expect a lot of big things from us, because we have big plans for Set The Score!"
If you had to convince a crowd of your peers to come check out a STS performance for the first time what would you say?
"I would say, theres probably tons of things you can do, but only one involves us and some great music! and we wont disappoint you, we can assure that"
(hugo)" you wont regret it, come and enjoy one awesome show"
Finally this question seems to always be a favorite, must-have... Candy?
(josh) "I love anything willy wonka"
(cam) "crunch bar"
(hugo) "swedish fish"
