VOiD808

Sometimes I do like to get away from my electro/nurave scene and get back to my emo/alternative rock days. These guys have provided me with a nice new sound to get into! Ahhhh totally loving it, enjoy their interview:

How did you come up with the name?
The name was void , but when we went to get a website it was taken , so we added the 808 and it was more of a time reference because the rest of the band could never show up to practice on time.

Tell me a little about yourselves?
Jay Adams -bass player (28), manager at a guitar store (guitar player turned bass player ) loves movies , videos games , and muscle cars , being on stage .

Oscar OO-singer and lead guitar(30) , doctor in psychiatry , loves big truck , muscle cars , video games , hanging with his friends ,writing songs , and going to the movies

Mike Turner – rhythm guitar (27) , bank bill collecter , likes big big trucks , going to the beach , drinking with friends , playing in a band ,

Brandon Ochoa – drums (30) , office manager , loves his wife , driving , drumming , bbq’s with friends , playing big shows in the band .

What did you guys do before the group started?
most of us were in school or working , we were all friends before hand , jay went to high school with brandon , and brandon and oscar went to college and were in void before mike and jay joined

How did you start out/ was it hard?
void808 started after void lost a member and they still wanted to play so mike and jay joined up , lucky void had been around a few years so they had lost of contacts to get gigs and stuff so it wasnt hard

Any big plans for the near future?
we are currently working with a woman who has a label and handles lots of big gigs , she has already got us a gig with atreyu, and we have been meeting with hollywood producers, and we just released a 3rd cd so we may be having some big things comming our way
