Got the pleasure of picking Jeff Raspe's brain yesterday at a BBQ at Mr. Riley's mom's house to the sounds of friends playing music. It was certainly not a bad way to spend the evening on a day off. Even more exciting, we will be on the air with Jeff tonight (6/15) in the 5 o'clock hour!
Tune your radios to 90.5 if you are in Monmouth County, NJ -or- head over to wbjb.org and listen worldwide!
We will be playing some new songs off our upcoming album 'Sarajevo' (out 6/18) and talking about our release show/party at The Saint in Asbury Park (also 6/18).
Hope to see you soon!

Yesterday the guys and I had a most surreal experience up in Glen Cove, LI. The Webb Institute. An 80 student college for Naval Architecture and Maritime Engineering that calls a converted Pratt family mansion it's home. It was like Hogwarts for Maritime Engineers (who are much like wizards)
Walking through the grounds and thinking of how it was once only a summer residence of one family I couldn't fathom the wealth the Pratts once had and I was very glad that it was now home to 80+ students and faculty.
Anyway. It was apparently 'Wayne Manor' in one of the old Batman movies........ so we played at Batman's house....... and that was nice.
Happy Sunday to all and to all a happy Sunday,
-Cranston Dean Band
