Man, what an awesome group of people. Even if I hadn’t heard their music, I’d like the band Schooner just by meeting them.

I was so taken by the personality and class running through this Carborro, NC quartet…I almost forgot I was on a shoot.

Then, they played a song off their unreleased album (which is coming soon), and now, I’m hooked.

That’s all it took.

Schooner is currently un-signed and will be touring in the fall.

Their next scheduled gig is July 11th, when they are one of the lucky bands to open for Joan Jett.
