And there was a Copian in the Atlanta house, so we are hoping for some bootleg, but until then, have this little clip of all the groups on stage, with Jason on tamborine:

Do you know what FMQB is?

Neither did I, but that’s just our ignorance. FMQB stands for Friday Morning Quarterback, and it’s a music trade magazine and website (you should definitely check them out), and last week they hosted a Triple A Conference in Boulder, CO.

If you’re interested in Jason’s songwriting process…

…there’s a fascinating glimpse into that in an article in the Vermont Standard about that songwriting retreat the family went to a few weeks ago:

He strummed and hummed as if he was in a trance.

He paused to sip some beer that rested on a picnic table. Then kept walking.

“Who are we talking to?” he asked.
