Shining (some more) on Night Lights Music Festival
A quick Q-and-A with one of the festival's amazing bands: GNOSiS
With the 2016 Night Lights Music Festival under way as of, well, now, I figured it'd be some good fun, as part of our continuing coverage, to take a few minutes out of the busy schedules of some of the very-awesome festival's organizers and performers for a little Q-and-A action.
First, I caught up with Scott Molloy, who, as a founder, organizer, and musician in Lazlo Hollyfeld, has been with Night Lights from the start. Now, it's time to hear from Ethan Pieper and Sam Edwards, members of Edinboro-based jam/fusion soundscapers GNOSiS.
Here's what they had to say:
RS: So, how about that Night Lights? I'm asking all the longtime/return musicians I'm talking with to sorta describe its all-around vibe. So...
RS: You're up there, taking it way out, and the crowd's just melting into it. That happens -- a lot -- where you're at. So, what are the musicians giving -- and what are you taking away for yourselves -- in those moments?
