About Couch Sessions Ocala

In 2003, 3 out of 5 members of my old band lived in our house…we would create music on the couch together. Eventually, friends came over to hang out and see the process behind our song making which grew to a very large crowd on practice night… it was one of the most special and memorable things about the times at “The Band House” and we had a dedicated fan and friend base because of our “Couch Sessions”.
