Meet the Band Monday: Kevin Bianchi 

Q: If you could have dinner with any musician or artist (living or dead), who would it be? 

A: If I could choose anyone to have dinner with, I would choose to have dinner with Elvis Costello. He has an amazing knowledge of music and songwriting and I think we could have a lively discussion about a number of interesting topics. Two geeks talking for hours about songs, what could be better? 

Q: How many bands have you been a part of in your career? 

A: I have been a part of a number of bands, most…

Meet the Band Monday: Brian Bianchi 

Q: How long have you been playing guitar? 
A: I have been playing guitar since freshman year of high school. 

Q: What style of music do you find least inspiring?
A: Opera. 

Q: If you weren't in the Chestertons, what style of music would you play?

Q: What are some of your favorite places to visit? 
A: I love…

Meet the Band Monday: Justin Hartman 

Q: How long have you been playing the bass?

A: About 20 years... I stopped counting! Guitar is my first and primary stringed instrument, but over the years I've spent a lot of time playing bass, too. 

Q: What makes a song 'special' for you? 

A: When something about the song -- the lyrics, the melody, the harmonies, the feel, the production -- resonates with me in a unique way. I can't articulate precisely why, as it varies from song to song and artist to artist, but some songs just vibrate with your soul…
