DJ Interviews: Weather Advisory

Hey there guys, DJ Dizzy here & here's my interview with a band who call themselves Wather Advisory, Enjoy! 

How'd you get started in music?

Our Drummer (AKA Dad) started playing drums in a band with his father back in the 70’s.  Sarah and Sam grew up playing multiple instruments each (ranging from fiddle and tin whistle to brass, woodwinds, guitar and piano) with the family and school bands.  Our interests all collided as we became exposed to a wider range of genres.  The band originally was formed to play for local dances and at times has had other personnel but the three of us have been constant.

Who are your inspirations or influences?

We have a long list of influences, but to summarize we mostly draw from the likes of Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson, AC/DC, George Thorogood, Albert Ammons, Michael Kaeshammer and Otis Spann.

What advice would offer aspiring performers?

Find a good instructor who has experience with performance.  Study your instrument, as nothing makes you more comfortable on stage as confidence in your abilities. 

How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or singers?

For us, we feel it is our combination of styles with our blues/rock and slide guitar playing paired up with Sarah’s left hand keyboard technique.  In our live performances we try to maintain a high energy level with fast paced boogie and rock songs in our set.  We feel that our first album is a unique combination of heavy slide blues, straight up rock and boogie songs with a delta styled blues tune.

Any new gigs or albums in the future?

Like many other performers, our shows are affected by the lockdowns but we do have some tentative bookings for outdoor shows in the spring and summer.  We are currently working on our second album.

Special thanks to them for doing this interview & I wish them lots of luck in their music. So until then I'll catch you on the Flipside! Stay awesome & rock n roll!
