EPISODE 11: THE BAND - Federale - from portland, oregon.
Portland, Oregon based band Federale performed in Salt Lake City, Utah last weekend (as part of their west coast tour) at local venue The Garage on Beck. We had the pleasure of meeting and having a fantastic conversation with all the members of the band. Federale is a seven-piece ensemble,spearheaded by longtime Brian Jonestown Massacre bassist Collin Hegna. the band was conceived as an outlet to channel inspiration from ‘60s & ‘70s European soundtracks, particularly those from Italy made famous by the Spaghetti Western & Giallo genres.
