Episode 85: The Cowards Choir

Episode 85: The Cowards Choir

In 2009, DC-based musico Andy Zipf decided it was time for a change, and thus The Cowards Choir was born. What was initially a “solo” project (there were always collaborators) has developed into a full-fledged band featuring fellow DC-area stalwarts Ryan Walker on bass, Ben Tufts on percussion and Adam Neubauer on drums, and October 4th, the quartet released their latest effort, Cool Currency.

Fresh off the release of that EP (and we do mean fresh…as in the morning after the release show), Andy and the guys stopped by the basement to talk about, the making of Cool Currency, the evolution of The Cowards Choir to date, their upcoming slot at the Magnificent Intentions Music Festival, and more.

Episode 75: Ben Tufts and Friends (Craig Tufts Memorial Fundraiser)

 On Saturday, August 16th, Vienna’s famed Jammin’ Java will host the Fourth Annual Ben Tufts and Friends fundraiser for the Craig Tufts Educational Scholarship Fund. With a promised SEVEN HOURS of music from the best of the regional scene and more, it’s sure to be one of the most memorable events of the year. With his brother Dan and friends, Derek Evry, Ryan Walker, Jasmine Gillison, and Aaron Mason in tow, Ben stopped by the basement yet again to talk in depth about the Craig Tufts Memorial Fund, share stories of how he and his friends met, the music they’ve created together over the years, and much, much more.
