Featuring Michael Jost, Miss Lucy, Goya and other lovely instruments!
Return of the Dragon is fronted by Bane Shaman, a screaming singing song writer whose influences range from hard rock to Motown. Michael Jost throws down some heavy riffs on electric guitar, with Geoff “Like a Freight Train” Haba on drums and Hailey Demian holding it all down on the bass.
Return of the Dragon on Radio Venice
Radio Venice S13.E08 – March 8, 2020
Who or what inspires you?
I feel I’ve recently found a drive to not leave this world without telling my little bit of story. I’ve spent so many years playing cover songs but if I can have an impact on just a handful of people with the songs I wore and perform, I’ve satisfied the need or drive to share the story.
Why do you love Radio Venice?
After watching a few episodes I really appreciate the diversity. I like there are no rules to what style of artist or music is shared.
Favorite album right now?
I’ve been into Ariel Posen lately. A great guitar player and I’m really into his tuning, somewhere between a standard tuned guitar and a baritone. Makes me want to buy a baritone acoustic just to see what inspiration comes from it.
Favorite quarantine activity?
I have two young kids so … anything where the kids aren’t around. Lol.
Favorite comfort food?
Does beer and whiskey count? Lol [RV: absolutely!]
Favorite instrument …
My Martin acoustic guitar have family member relationship at this point. I had to send it in for repairs for a couple months and when I got it back it was like getting back a long lost member of the band.
… and does it have a name?
Funny thing, I’ve never named any important possession in my life. If the Martin could talk I think he’d quote a Paul Simon song and say “you can call me Al”.
