Europe, Jeff Shane, Midwest discussed on Here & Now

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Another baby which we ended up having our daughter emily after that first of all it was they told us specifically to latin for the americans into american for the latins so when they would hear the track they loved it they thought it was really cool but they were not going to take a chance on playing it and we had the best focus group of all when we wrote that song in europe we came back and we played gigs and we were playing that song on all our gigs before we even recorded and people would literally flood to the dance floor as if they were hearing a hit so we were completely sure that it would happen so jeff shane who's played in in representing the play literally called a friend of his in the midwest and pulled in a favor and said please just play at once for me and the guy played it and the phones went crazy people were calling in from like insurance companies saying that everyone was doing the congolese around the floor of the of the office and that's the kind of impact that would have when it was on the radio and getting played but it took a year to get to the top top ten you do did you ever think of calling this show conga instead of on your feet.
