If you could ask yourself your own first question to start off this interview with, what would it be and what’s the answer?
Jason: What was the coolest thing about doing Warped Tour? Answer… Catering!
Pat: Of all the states you have toured in, which is your favorite? Answer….California.
Take us through a typical day on the road traveling?
Jason: Depending on how long of a trip it is we 1: Wake up hung over, hit up a Wawa, travel to load in around 4 pm usually, do the whole load in sound-check thing, hit up a Fourkation and get a Four Loko. Watch the opening bands, hang out with friends, get on stage, rip hard, sell some shirts and cds, commence after party/sleepover.
Pat: Well…I attempt! I repeat my attempt to sleep in the van but then successfully fail due to the awesome conditions of the toll roads that we travel on and pay sooo much money for. And the rest of what Jason said..
You guys are on the road so much every year that I would think it is difficult keeping a balanced marriage/relationship? How do you find a way to make them work?
Jason: I personally feel extremely lucky to have such a supportive wife and life partner in my life. She has my back and has pushed the band to succeed, on days when I wanted to quit she wouldn’t let me and for that I owe much of my success to her. It is hard being away so much, but as they say “absence makes the heart grow fonder”. For anyone who is in this situation I’d say trust is the most important part.

The Ehh Brah Party Tour will feature The B Foundation, The Supervillains, and Ballyhoo! How much trash talking will go down since you are HUGE Laker fans and Supervillains are HUGE Magic fans?
Jason: Who exactly are The Supervillains and the Magic again?
Pat: Jason don’t know jack…. The Supervillains are a hockey team from New York ya dummy ….. next question!
While we are on that subject will the Lakers 3-peat? Also what are your feelings about the Miami Heat and Lebron?
Jason: The Lakers def have the potential every year. As far as Lebron, I think he’s a chump.. Touchdown!
Pat: I don’t care about a bunch of overpaid athletes I make music and that is all I care about..(big up rasta) smoke grass.
I am curious on if and how bands plan for life after music. Is this something you guys think about or live life at the moment?
Jason: I’ve always been focused on getting the band to the next level, because no matter where you are there’s always a next level to be attained. I haven’t spent too much time thinking about what I’m gonna do after The b Foundation. I always hoped the answer would be that I would retire. Unfortunately the music industry is kinda jacked up so we’re just working away and hoping for the best.
Pat: There is never life after music……
Jason: Blue Moon
Pat: No Beer …..But my favorite rum is Kraken rum..
Jason: Tory Lane
Jason: The Goonies
Pat: Fight Club
Favorite City outside your state?
Jason: Duck Tales/Animaniacs
