The Coconut Brigade

Listen to a hit song:  I Got Time

Over Christmas break I was honored enough to be invited to a concert that my friends’ band was playing in which I mentioned in this post. Since I grew up with these guys (went to elementary, middle and high school) with them it was amazing to see how far they have come since playing in the 7th grade talent show. Their music is so original and their talent is outstanding. I am so proud of each and every one of these guys. I got the chance to sit down and talk to with an old friend/band member Dan Wissinger, here is what he had to say.
