I’m not a lead singer, so I can either try to mold them, which doesn’t necessarily accentuate their strengths, or I can look at change as a positive thing.  If I do that, one of the things that keeps me going is the freshness – we always try to keep doing some of the old songs, but people are excited because they’re going to beputting something in themselves, too. Everyone brings in songs they think might suit the style. It’s a real team effort – everybody is pulling for the other guy as much as for himself. Greg Cahill band leader comments on the bands high standards and  his approach to music
