“You know, I think landscape had a lot to do with. I mean, it’s a small town, and a lot of people in town live walking distance to the Downtown area. It’s only four blocks by four blocks, so it’s not a huge geographic space. Within that small area, there’s so many bars and places to play, you can’t help but attract a lot of foot traffic. People just sort of stumble in and [see the bands.] I think first and foremost, the musicians that live in the community are supportive of each other and work together for the greater good of each other’s bands. If someone needs a drummer, they’re happy to step in and play for another group, the musicians are just super supportive of each other. I think it starts there.”
