There are so many great ones! I know it’s technically a festival and not a venue,
but we’ve loved our experiences at Mountain Jam every time we’ve played it.

Favorite Local View
The top of Gore Mountain in North Creek, NY! Chris and I grew up skiing and snowboarding there,
and we both worked as instructors when we were in high school. Love that mountain.

Your Dream Upstate NY Weekend?
Go skiing, or go hiking, or swimming, or anything outside really.
Hit up a craft fair or a farmer’s market.
Go for a bike ride. See a cool movie. Cook something fun.

If you could have one superpower what would it be?
Sometimes I think being able to read minds would be cool.
But then I wonder if it would actually be more of a curse than a blessing.

What’s your current state of mind?
Excited. Energized. A little hungry.
