This is another one of those shows that has been in the works for what seems like an eternity. I've been friends Scooter Hanes for a few years now, but it has taken all that time for the stars to align such that the timing is right to have him on the show. Fortunately, with his demo completed and work begun a full-length CD, this has become the opportune time to give him a little promotion.
Scooter has made a name for himself on the east coast with various musical projects and a CD with his former musical partner Paul "Pabo" Dake released through Zigmo Records -- good luck finding a copy. Here in Indiana he has been very successful playing such venues as the Whammy Bar, the Rathskellar, and recurring gigs at a couple of notable chain restaurants here in town. Contrary to rumor, he is not the guy in the freecreditreport.com commercials.
Recently, however, he has put his efforts into his own music as the primary singer/songwriter/guitarist in the Scooter Hanes Band, and inexplicably, is actively looking to trade steady, high-paying, corporate gigs for the smaller audiences of the less-stable, less-appreciated, all-original music scene. For that, we salute and support him.
