The Falcons may look like a drunken party onstage, but these are no frat kids. With most members in their early 30s and many previous bands between them, the guys feel like their age and experience are the group's biggest assets.
"I've been in other bands where we tried really hard," Weber says. "We had to meet the right people, do the right things, record at the right places. But that came out sanitized. So I thought I was done with it--I went back to school. But George kept coming into my work saying, 'You're going to be in this band,' and I finally tried it, and I liked the experience of it. We hung out, wrote songs and did all the things that are actually fun about being in a band." Weber continues, "The bands I admire the most, I see them differently now. I realize how much of their music was just to make themselves happy, and they made everyone else happy in the process. And that's what we do."
