Back stage ritual:
Behind the scenes our “Stage Nazi” (you know who you are) can get so demanding in his quest for perfect sound that the rest of us often just tremble and cry in a corner somewhere until show time.
Funniest or strangest thing that ever happened during a performance: One time Tamara’s pants split up the back halfway through the night. No one in the audience knew why the drummer had such a hard time overcoming the giggles.
Goals: To become NWA’s first choice for high quality entertainment able to cater to any audience for all occasions.
