Huffamoose: Don't Call Me "Sir"
One day you're touring in a rock band in your twenties, and then all of a sudden the checkout guy at Trader Joe's calls you "sir". Craig Elkins and Kevin Hanson of Huffamoose drop by the Cafe to talk about making the band's first new album in more than a decade, and to reminisce about their early success in the '90s. Huffamoose played the main stage at Woodstock and signed a deal with Interscope. But it all fell apart, and it took years to recover. The band has reunited with the original lineup, rounded out by Jim Stager and Eric Johnson. Hear Huffamoose perform songs from their new album and reflect on their new outlook on rock/life balance.
