The FEW BIO
We could go on & on about the beginnings of each member of the F.E.W. but we believe you REALLY just wanna know how they got together right? AC! Yep, AC Collins met HAWC by simply accepting an invitation from the drummer sitting in on a gig with HAWC one night. AC asked if he could add some sax to the other 4 guys playing in the band. After enjoying the enhancement, the 2 kindred spirits quickly embraced the idea that the pair was a better presentation until they could acquire new members to continue HAWC’s vision for The F.E.W. HAWC and AC took on several private events as the DYNAMIC DUO of the FEW as AC introduced HAWC to several potential drummers & guitar players during their year hosting open mic jams at a Jazz Venue. That’s when Andre Scott joined the mix, although Andre was already the main drummer for another band, he would fill in as often as he could. As the trio hammered out jam after jam they would occasionally alternate guitar players, but since their busy family demands & work lives only allowed for them to practice at the jams, the best fit without complaint was Greg Swann on guitar. Over 3 years, all 4 members had only practiced with each other 3times. They really just get familiar with the basics of a song idea or cover HAWC throws out there. Then HAWC programs the foundational pieces needed to cover click tracks and bass with some auxiliary keyboard enhancements, leaving the rest open for Andre to fill with drums, Greg to underlay guitar and occasional solo & vocal; AC would find sax riffs to emulate horn parts and occasional solos; as HAWC would ripped occasional keytar solos, live keyboard padding and then slowly came out of his bashfulness to deliver a lead vocal that many were shocked that the band had even MORE to deliver than just a polished audible gourmet buffet of sound. They continue to surprise the various crowds by striving to be truly eclectic, catering their set list to whomever walks through the door to give them a listen. Many are warned before the gig, but still walk away in disbelief that all that sound came from just 4 guys, and it sounded like they practiced way more than they do. Not many can pull off such a feat, only the FEW.
