Dan Raridan met bandmate Alessandro Cortez at South Park Tavern's open mic night. Soon they began playing together and recruited Larry Smith on drums. The trio recently completed an album called Bus comprised of songs mostly written by Dan before the band formed. Here they perform live in the WYSO studios and talk to Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt about the new album, upcoming gigs and finding musical compatibility as a trio.
"Ever since he died and I knew I would never see him, I’ve been rehashing all these memories. That trip was important because it was one of the few times I got to interact with this man who I loved, who loved me, who I had fun with."
