The Winter Beards started out easily enough, all the members knew each other before the band started. No offense to Craigslist but that’s weird, like online dating. A lot of kooks out there. Two of the members have been playing together for nearly a decade in one form or another but mostly as Nideit. The others were just waiting for that special group to come along and pull them into a band, like a stranger with a van full of candy. The band (Jimi Fernandes- Vocal/Bass, Dave Nunes- Drums, Andrew Malizia- Guitar, Colin Riggs- Guitar) had no trouble finding that sweet spot where everyone is on the same page and looking for the same things. Its not calculus, have a good time and play the music you like. Sing songs about getting screwed over by girls, and drinking till your face hurts. Then maybe drink till your face hurts. The Winter Beards are just getting started, its too soon to tell how it all shakes out for us. I imagine it’ll all be great fun, and if we can look past the fact that one member listens to Rush then we can take on the world. For the record, don’t listen to Rush.
