Interview with "Call to Start"

Hey, can all of you introduce yourselves to our reader's 
Chris - "Vocals" , Kevin - "Drums",  Mike- "Guitar",  Billy- "Bass", Brian - "Guitar"

2. How did you come upon the name 'Call To Start'?
"Well back when we were located in Merritt Island, we knew we wanted to represent our hometown in the name of our band. Merritt Island can probably be best described where the Kennedy Space Center is, so Call To Start resembles the countdown for the engines to start. We were also going through a reformation so a frest "start" was also a reason to the name."

3.Is there a particular artist that first inspired you to start playing music as individuals?
"We will probably give you the answer almost every pop-punk band gives, Blink-182. No matter what, everyone can love some blink."

4.How long have all of you been playing together?  
"Brian Billy and Kevin started up during the summer of 2010. During our reformation into Call To Start in February 2011 we added Mike, who was already a long time friend of the band. We went through singer changes and eventually got Chris November of 2011."

5.Venue you hope to one day perform at?
"Well, this was a hard question, because we all have different answers as to where we would dream to play. But we think it would be awesome to play a huge roof top party on a city like New York or South Beach."

6. What is the weirdest/funnest thing that has ever happened to you while performing?
"We were playing a show in our hometown of Merritt Island, our first show with Chris, and we got a noise complaint. The owner of the park came out, interuppted our set and told us we got a noise complaint. Chris went on to congratulate the crowd on the noise complaint and the owner (ex marine) yelled at Chris calling him a Smart Ass. Lol, that sucked."

7.If you were 'DARED' to do a cover of a Britney Spears song, which one would it be?
"Her entire discography. We jam to her all the time."

8.Who would be you dream band/artist to tour with?
"We couldn't come to a final answer. But we would create a tour with The Foo Fighters, Blink 182, and A Day To Remember."

9.What is the #1 song on your playlist right now?
"Satisfaction by Benny Benassi."

10. Favorite candy? :)
Mike-"Peanut M&m's"
Kevin- "Swedish Fish"
Brian - "Sour Patch Kids"
Chris - "Reese's Peices"
Thanks so Much, We will see you @ Bombshell's on the 4th!

Orlando Rock's April 7th @ HOB '12

This Past Saturday (April 7th) @ The House of Blues Shut Up and Dance took the stage and grabbed the audience's attention with their hybrid version of the pop/rock dance style that's a little on the addictive side of things especially their cover of 'Marry The Night' by Lady Gaga. Lead singer Jessi has a great stage presence and is so exciting to watch her perform, and Joey seems to have a veteran style that screams that he belongs on that stage. Sadly though it was Chad's (SUAD guitarist) last performance as part of the band... "We love you Chad"! You can catch Shut Up and Dance performing @ the FMF on April 19th and with Chasing Thrill on May 4th @ 7pm inside of Bombshell's Tavern in Orlando!


Alternative Rock band Mr.Bella took the next set changing the mood of the room and the sound in the venue but keeping the excitment in the room consistent to SUAD as they engaged the audience adding to their rock solid performance they offer up a unique infused musical style even covering an unexpected 'Just Dance' by Lady Gaga but a very good unexpected :)
You can catch our interview with Mr. Bella on HearThatTuneMusic.blogspot.com and MyLakeLibrary.org ~TeenLib
