Start The Beat 034: DAN ROCK

For the 34th episode of #startthebeat I sat down with my new homie Dan from the band World's Scariest Police Chases, Lock and Key Collective & local screenprint shop Commonwealth Press. We had an awesome conversation discussing the history of his band and some of the things we've noticed/experienced involving the current generation gap going on within the "punk" community. We also talk about how we've both managed to worm our way into the paths we have paved for ourselves and try to figure out ultimately if Punk Rock has really ruined our lives or not. Sit back, relax and lets START THE BEAT!

Start The Beat 033: RYAN PETERS

For the 33rd episode of #startthebeat I sat down with my long time friend Ryan aka Amuck for a talk about how we met, the music we've made together and how things have played out for us over the past 7+ years of our friendship. Ryan was also kind enough to give us all a world premier of his new single "Binge" from his upcoming EP "Detonate" which you'll get to hear at the end of this podcast! Sit back, relax and lets START THE BEAT!

Start The Beat 032: RICK TOPPING

For the 32nd episode of #startthebeat I sat down with my buddy Rick for a nice talk about being a father, husband, everyday working man and still pursuing his desire for creative output amongst all of the chaos. This is some genuine real adult talk this week but it's an awesome conversation full of great energy and positivity. Sit back, relax and lets START THE BEAT!

Start The Beat 031: TONY TORTELLA

For the 31st episode of #startthebeat I sat down with my friend Tony for a lengthy but rock solid conversation about the weird shit he liked as a kid, playing in bands, falling into the world of Men's fashion, starting up his own candle company and how nobody knows what the term "hipster" really means anymore. Sit back, relax and lets START THE BEAT!
