OSWEGO, NY – There was a ten-minute wait to get into Old City Hall recently as local residents and college students stood in line to attend House on a Spring.
As the band played there was a crowd of about 50 people dancing to the music.
A regular to the House on a Spring shows, Katie Flinn, took a quick break from dancing to talk about her opinion of the shows.
â€œI like the atmosphere; I love the vibes they bring. I like that the atmosphere, lets everyone feel togetherness through the use of Reggae music,â€ she said. â€œThatâ€™s why I love Reggae music, itâ€™s something everyone can relate to.â€
After a five-song set the lead singer Rob Dee sat down for an interview.
It was quite a struggle getting him outside, however, considering everyone in the bar wanted a word with the singer.
Clearly the singer has both personal and vocal skills.
Rob has been with the band for two years but House on a Spring has been playing for five.
His favorite part about playing in their hometown of Oswego is, â€œgood energy, good vibe, lots of loyalty. The hometown love is more strong which makes our energy more strong,â€ he explained.
Since the band has been progressively gaining popularity, theyâ€™ve played as far as the Saranac region.
Recently they have been in Saranac Lake and Potsdam.
As far as crazy incidents on the road Rob said, â€œThe craziest thing on the road happened when we got kicked out of a motel because people were skinny dipping next to us and it was a small town and the guy that owned the motel freaked out.â€
Unfortunately for the band, they had nothing to do with the incident but still had to relocate their hotel room.
As far as the bandâ€™s success and how well they are doing financially Rob had this to say, â€œAs far as being an income, itâ€™s not that itâ€™s just money in our pocket.Â Obviously the world revolves around money but doing what you love and having fun is the most importation thing – period and dancing is cool too.â€
Before the interview was over Rob was surrounded by fans trying to have a word with him.
