Le Festival de musique émergente en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (FME) takes place from August 30 to September 2, 2018. We are glad to chat with some of the performers in advance of the event. First off, we spoke with Boston’s Rockabilly band, Jittery Jack and Miss Amy. You can check them out on Friday, August 31 at Diable Rond from 12:45 am to 1:30 am and also on September 1 at Diable Rond from 12:45 am to 1:30 am. For more info, head HERE.
Is this your first time playing the FME?
Yes! We are very excited to take part.
Who are you looking forward to seeing perform from the festival line up?
Excited to see and play with Dex Romweber, I’ve been a fan since the 80’s.
How would you say playing a festival differs from a solo show?
It’s a chance to play in front of lots of different people.
What are some things you think make this specific music festival great?
I’ll find out when I get there, it’s our first time!
If you were to headline a festival and create your own lineup, who would you choose?
A good mix of older acts and new bands. Bloodshot Bill, The Royal Crowns and the Greasemarks are Canadian faves of mine.
If you could pick a place to have your own music festival, where would it be and why?
In the Caribbean in the dead of winter?
Explain your performance in five words or less.
Wild 1950’s influenced Rock ‘n’ Roll.
If you had to choose one song to recommend to a new listener, which would it be?
“Something Wicked This Way Comes”
Are there any other major dates or festivals you would like to mention for upcoming shows?
We are doing a 3-week tour around the USA in October with Hillbilly Casino.
