60 Seconds: How long have you lived in Memphis?
Impeccable Miscreants: All of us have been in and around Memphis for 15 plus years.
60 Seconds: What are some recent gigs you guys did?
Impeccable Miscreants: We have played a First Friday on Main Street, we played on the Memphis Greenline (after Michael Joyner: who was previously featured on 60 sec). We have also played charity events for Lebonheur (Lebonheuroo) and Ronald McDonald House. We did New Year's Eve at the Flying Saucer and we've recorded at both Sun Studios and Sam Phillips Recording.
60 Seconds: When did you Impeccable Miscreants get started?
Impeccable Miscreants: We all started at different times, but we started playing together about a year ago. Aaron (guitar), Will (bass), and Logan (drums) all went to Christian Brothers High School together and started playing music with one another there. Freddy (our singer) was in a show choir based out of Des Moines but his father lived in Memphis. We met him through Aaron (who used to play acoustic shows with him) and started jamming. The chemistry was instantaneous becuase we had all played with each other...just not as a group! The way our musical ideas meshed allowed us to develop our talent as a collective quite rapidly.
60 Seconds: What is the best part about being a musician?
Impeccable Miscreants: The best part is to make somebody else happy! As musicians, we have the power to move people and express to them our personal feelings. Music serves as a medium for creativity and emotion. When you look out into the crowd and you can tell everyone is feeling that same thing, it makes you feel INFINITE! There is also no better feeling than making a crowd of Memphians get up and DANCE :)
60 Seconds: What are your major aspirations?
Impeccable Miscreants: We all plan on being musicians for the rest of our lives and we would love to gain some recognition and share the stage/learn from the some Memphis greats like Jack Oblivion, Paul Taylor, Susan Marshall, etc... Getting national recognition for Memphis' music would be our greatest honor!
60 Seconds: How is your music art connected to Memphis?
Impeccable Miscreants: Our sound is our most definitive connection with Memphis. There are Memphis roots in everything we do. We wear zoot-suits to some gigs, we've played at some of Memphis's legendary studios: Sam Phillips Recording and Sun Studios, etc.
60 Seconds: Anything else?
Impeccable Miscreants: We LOVE playing/making music, and we LOVE Memphis! The musical energy here is palpable and we are honored to be a part of it (even if it is a small one...for now) We cannot express how greatful we are for exposure programs like this one! Last thing, Please come see one of our live shows...then you will know how devoted we are to the Music and Memphis :)
