How did you get involved in Trippin’?

Paul: “We got involved with Trippin after Devi contacted us via email about using Catfight in her film.  Amy, Jon and I looked over the contracts with our high powered legal team and then signed on the line. (We three wrote Catfight together in Jon’s basement apartment.)”
There origins and influences of the band/artist?
“Jon, Mike and I all have solid blues backgrounds with early classic rock & fusion. Amy is off doing her own thing as well as Ted.”
The are the future plans for Underbelly?
“Our great big plans include completing out 4th CD and continuing to improve and evolve our music while not going too deep into foreclosure on our houses.”
The biggest highs and lows of your career?
“Career low…This is just for Jon and me and we don’t speak of it often…playing Weddings.  High..we toured ski resorts in Switzerland in 1994.
Basically anytime I jam with Jon and Mike I consider it a blessing.”

Trippin related tats?  Dark ink in the shadows.”

Ask yourself the question that you think should be asked in interviews, but never is.
“What does music give you that nothing else can?”

“Kids don’t take drugs, kids with parents with drugs take their parents drugs.”
