"Before they got the opportunity to play in vegas you know they would go to the chitlins circuit. They go on these black own black only you know type type deals so they go to the howard theatre in dc. Go to the cotton club in harlem or they would go to the apollo in harlem you go to the theater in detroit them and go to the What does the ritz theatre jacksonville florida. They may go to. I already mentioned howard in washington. Dc the go all the hip. The hypocr home in Richmond virginia so going to all these places and they were playing. Not just bo town but you know john. Coltrane miles davis. Sammy davis junior with perform their down here in vegas. They'd go to the west side before jackson street You know oldest ready all these guys. They won't allow for the most part to play the shows in vegas at the more glitzy. Glamorous type of venues lay down to the west side and sammy davis junior. And all those guys not only they performed there but they also stayed there because at the time here vadis in the sixties and such it was still segregated so black. Performer could not dress in the dressing room as the white performance. They could not stay in the hotel where they were performing that they were going to be performing there so after they got done. A piece in the white folks. Sammy davis junior. And those guys come. Across to jackson street on the west side here in vegas and they do their thing over over here and really get down and get loose. You know the harlem club in miami. That's another one. So much documentary will be a how awesome in the stories that could be told about not just playing in those venues but just dealing with life the way that they did these things going from place to place. And how do they all the times. The relationships that were formed during these times talk about you know the time that they spent for instance if they were going to be staying performing at the apollo theater how stating at the theresa hotel. This was the situation where malcolm x. had a rented space there to do things i mean you have great black thinkers in and black folks doing their thing in that area. How do they mix handling bengal mohammed. Ali spent some time there. James brown Had a room at the theresa hotel where he stayed for a while will love to see. I would love to hear the stories about what went down during those times. And you know we're speaking about. Why black folks can't get things together. Why is it that howard theaters and others. Both of these venues that were black owned in that were open to black performers and black artists in black entertainers. Why are they no longer there to. Your black folks had a brain in their head and i should. I guess i'm being a little bit too harsh..

"I really wasn't offended. Because i know i need it though i really did. But there's gotta be some of those those feelings as far had we say this. You don't have time. not you know. Piss her off or hurt her feelings but this needs to happen and so yes. Sometimes i'd get my feelings hurt when i wouldn't be chosen for a solo or something like this but i had to have humility. I wasn't the best player. And i've got better but i think i'm glad that they were honest with me so so you actually took lessons just for a little while and then i didn't need them because the way we kind of work as dennis would write a lot of the horn parts in hebrew wrote them such that every time he wrote the baby harder and harder but we had a lot of sectionals where was sworn in he. We really worked perfection and he would help me so even though he would write parts the beginning that i was like. I don't think i can pull it off just being in the band for that. While you had to pull off lessons. I just needed practice. And then once you the show started picking up then you were. You were getting practice every night. And that's one of the most amazing things when you think about the years that we played we toured consecutively all the time. The songs could be so tight and now in the past few years. We've been doing flyouts fun to do but you don't get the songs to the caliber that you did tour. You know what sounds next without even thinking about it so i do miss that ability to really hone in a band. Are you all still in the denver area or are you all spread out all over. The country at this point have of us are in denver. our lead singer reese roper. He's in virginia. That's where his family is a dennis culp. He and his wife live in new jersey and he works in new york. So he's over there and then sunny he's from from southern california and he moved to denver forbid when he first joined the band but now he's back in southern california so the five people that live here we can practice and we do and we try to practice during soundcheck whenever we get together for shows you know. So it's it's hit or miss but it's gonna be interesting when we do to play live again when we get to play this new album until this shakes apart. We haven't played any of those songs viant. Well hopefully it doesn't shake shakes together right. It's going to be so exciting. It's going to be so exciting to practice now. It gives us life playing new songs together. Because i'm sure you haven't besides at did the whole recording process. You probably haven't rehearsed them together. I'm guessing right. Yeah and even recorded you. Don't play as a band you go in and you write in the studio a little bit. So yeah they haven't even played as a band. Yeah that's that's going to be wild and it'll be great for the fans to because by that time. Whenever the heck that is they will have listened to the new album. Hopefully a billion times by that point honestly. If i can be honest. This album has had such a fascinating I know just a fascinating experienced on everybody because it wanted took the long to put it out and so the anticipation was great. But also i get the by. That people are listening to once. They're listening to enjoy listening to it to be like. Did he really say that. Never listening to it to be. Oh really enjoy this. And i'm getting so much feedback from people that can have said that they were listening to it a lot. So i think you're right. I think that this is one of those albums that has a lot of layers to it and people are just giving it a fun. Listen it's more than that it will. It's i mean to be fair. I feel like it's not a typical five iron frenzy album. It's not just a oh. this is a fun. Listen kind of album like you said. There's many many layers to it going from the lyrics to the actual music itself. I feel like there's so much going on just even from just listening if you just single out like the guitar i feel like there's a lot more guitar work than i've ever heard before Especially with the previous album release seven years ago. There's just even a lot more just going on with a guitar. Let alone ever every other instrument when you put it in it has more of a two tone feel i. that's that's my take on two-tone scott feel versus like having that that third wave sound. Yeah i kind of call it like. Yeah the fast punk songs. There's the more mid tempo Grooving songs that. I liked the changes that it has in the styles the only difference i would say from us and to tomo may be again. This comes back to me not being very good. We don't have a lotta horns zillow's for a band you know. There's i think in this out. There might only be just one trombone slide a little bit. Solas we're not not a big solo ban a were more of horrid lions. And i love that. I love big part of just nice. Awesome reminds me a bo town just beautiful. Catchy single bullhorn lines rather than solas. Yeah no that. That's a good point like you said grooving that fits perfectly like everyone's just kinda grooving along together And i feel like that's that's one of the big differences in this record. Is that that influence of of that group. And it's great. I really really enjoy it. So what are some of the things you're hearing specifically from fans about the album from from good bad. Okay like what. What's all of it then. You're hearing well for the most part. People are very excited about how it seems to speak to the times like. There's a weird thing that happens. Sometimes people say these lyrics. Philo was prophetic and i think racist pulse. There have to do a lot with him. Possibly living in the south possibly what he is experiencing where he lives and where he what he sees. What's on his heart in even through his relationship with gaden and all of that coming together inspires him. And you know it's hard also fill those lyrics to a song sonically you know. There's only so much space in a song. So you know there has to be some giving go some compromise of that but i think he did a good job. Also it's interesting when people say this is one of the things we always hear that makes craziest people say oh. I wish five wasn't political. Like they are now. Well you know the first one of our first album the west where it talks about you know actual eric raping killing steel asks. Oh you look at these. You're saying they're always wasn't aspect like this. They're always were songs.
