Recently a marketing director from a national firm who deals in booking only the biggest acts, who is an old friend of mine, asked me about my band and who was in it. I told him I was playing with John Falco. He said,” Dude he looks like a rock star”. I told him I couldn’t wait to put that in my solicited quotes in our press kit. But that and a dollar can get me a cup of coffee. Our myspace bio reads as follows: The similarities between if’n and the Beatles are mind boggling. The Beatles have countless gold albums and number one hits. For decades the Beatles have influences all facets of music. Thousands of bands have covered their songs. They are icons that will transcend time. Like the Beatles, if’n has a guitarist named John and a left handed bass player. This was put together at the spur of the moment to be witty and funny. But it might be more insightful that I ever thought it would be. As we were playing the other night and adding some harmonies in to a song one of us wrote, I had a feeling this is what the Beatles must have felt like while writing the songs for Let It Be or Abbey Road. I am an excellent judge of what is good, what is great, and what is garbage. I am extremely objective with music I am involved with. I have written more garbage than I care to admit. “if’n” writes great music with great lyrics. This is a great band with an exciting future. I am proud to be involved and I can’t wait to hear what we do next. if'n has been playing around the Delaware Valley to rave reviews. Recently if'n music is now being played on both WSTW 93.7 and WBDK 91.5,with more to come.
