DateMonthYear - DateMonthYear 2008 Newsletter Interview

04 Feb 2008 // An interview by Shade
DateMonthYear Interview (questions answered by Trevor and the rest of the band):

What is the best gig/event you have ever performed at, and why?

Maybe last years concert with the Trust Waikato Symphony Orchestra at the Hamilton gardens. Playing you own music with a full orchestra to a crowd of 6000 at an open air festival...well, it speaks for itself, really.

What is your favourite NZ venue?

Diggers back bar and The Yellow Submarine both stand out (both in Hamilton).

What can we expect to see from DateMonthYear over the next year?

The first big thing is the long delayed release of our first full-length album in two year called Pot/Kettle/Black.The second thing is the redesign of the DMY live experience-the long awaited first Black Team gig.

What other NZ musicians or bands would you like to see more of, and why?

Mark Tupuhi (aka St Lucy) and Luna Spark.Simply put, they do what they do very well indeed and need to be heard.

If you could, what rumour would you start about yourselves?

That the drummer is, in fact, nineteen and runs a highly successful IT company.

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

If you like your sound then someone else will too.The real challenge in music marketing is in allowing your audience to find you.

The end result has meant airplay on hundreds of radio stations around the world, music licensed to TV, Ads and Movies-again, worldwide-, gigs with Symphony Orchestras, live theatre and so much more.
