Last Monday, on August 7, 2017, I went to my first ever show at the now non-profit venue, The Trunk Space to see the Harrison Huffman Band. Now located inside Grace Lutheran Church, The Trunk Space is a very unique venue to see a show in, and I would highly recommend it to anyone in the area. Playing in the same show as I sat with the two members of the band Harrison Huffman, and Max Rogers and asked them some questions.
How’d you come up with you come up with your band name?
Harrison Huffman: It had no creativity at all. It didn’t have any thought to it, you know Jimi Hendrix, his band, it’s just a basic band name.
What makes your sound unique?
Harrison: It’s not really that unique.
Max Rogers: Well what makes our sound unique is that we created our own genre of music.
What would describe your genre as?
Max: Like surf rock, rock n’ roll.
Harrison: Yeah, that’s exactly what it is.
Who are people that inspire you? Like artists and musicians.
Max: Jimi Hendrix. All Along the Watchtower is my favorite song by him.
Harrison: I like Black Sabbath, and The Grateful Dead.
Any upcoming Eps, albums or singles?
Harrison: Yes, my friend Collin, he recorded a new album for me, it sounds sick.
What’s the name of it?
Harrison: I don’t know yet.
How long have you been playing?
Harrison: Since I was like, ten-years-old. My dad’s a musician, so I kinda wanted to start doing stuff after seeing him.
Max: Since I was a kid, like, eight.
What are your plans for the future?
Harrison: I don’t know, my dream is to not be broke.
Max: I really want to be a professional musician.
Any Interests outside of music?
Harrison: I like painting, painting is fun. Music production too. I like recording with analog stuff.
What can you tell me about your instrument?
Max: I can’t really describe it. Even though there are only seven pieces, you can play it differently, and create all these different genres with the same kind of drum. I think it’s really cool how different music can be just by playing the instrument differently.
The Harrison Huffman Band is playing a release show for a new album on September 14, 2017 at The Trunk Space.
