Interviews: JIMBO


In this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Alternative Rock/Psychedelic Rock band JIMBO from Canada. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

The band name is a band secret!

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Jacob Tessier: We chose this genre because it strikes the right balance between empowering hard rock and emotional depth, allowing us to be as creative as possible in all facets of songwriting

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Joe Narducci: We decided to start a band the first time Jacob and I met. We both came to Kingston, Ontario with the hopes of starting a band and playing shows as soon as possible. When it came time to find a vocalist and bass player, we reached out to Alex van Der Heyden who we had seen perform as part of a busking club we were apart of at our university.

4. Each band member favorite band?

Joe Narducci 🡪 Smashing Pumpkins
Alex Van Der Heyden 🡪 Tool
Jacob Tessier 🡪 Soundgarden

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Joe Narducci: Songs are mostly inspired by life events or things that we see happening around us. Personally, I find most of my songs can be traced back to a single sentence that I heard someone say or that I read somewhere. Sometimes that’s all it takes.

6. Where was your last gig?

Back In March at the Alehouse in Kingston, Ontario. It was our biggest show yet!

7. Where would you like to act?

We would like to hopefully tour all over the world one day! 8. Whom would you like to feature with? There are too many to mention!

9. Whom not?

Jacob Tessier: Literally any pop star.

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Joe Narducci: I personally feel that I am most calm when I know I’m going to be on stage with Alex and Jacob. I usually don’t get stage fright.

Jacob Tessier: Tips for beginners would be to drink water, and have faith that once you hit that first note, the rest will go smoothly. The first note is the hardest.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Soundgarden, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alice in Chains, Nirvana.

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

We haven’t been asked for anything weird yet, but we did have an older gentlemen put a joint on the table we were sitting at and say “I may be old but I’m still cool”.

13. What do you think of your fans?

We love them!

14. What do you think of our site?

It’s awesome!!

15. Something add?

That we are grateful for every opportunity we get! We are super happy to have the opportunity and freedom to make the music we are making.

At the end of the day, we’re having fun doing what we love and we hope that as time goes on we are able to reach more and more people. We feel that hard rock music has helped us through the toughest parts of our lives and we hope that our music will be there for our listeners when they need it most.
