After the music industry let down ElectroHawk, the band found solace in a house concert.

Gideon Jungmen: “As ElectroHawk, we try to bring everyone together to get up and dance to our addictive music; the trombone helps a lot. Two years ago, we were approached by a record label about performing at a showcase for A&R reps in Englewood. We were very excited to play, and for the chance to bring our sound to a wider audience.

“When we arrived, we were informed the A&R reps were not there. Confused bands wandered aimlessly, looking for any sort of information or structure for the evening. We decided to leave the venue and take everyone who came to see ElectroHawk back to our jam space for a free private show, since people made an effort to see us. People were dancing and singing and wearing alien masks, and it was more fulfilling than we could have expected.”
