Sound Machine Interview: Momma's Boy


Who are the members of Momma’s Boy and when did the band come together?

Shaun Crowley, Peter Beaty, Jared Bajkowski, and Quinn Hernandez. Jared joined the band in early October, but the rest of us have been playing since January.

Why did you choose Momma’s Boy as your band name, and does that name carry any significance or symbolism?

It kind of just started as a joke. One of us threw it out as a bad idea and two of us actually liked it and it ended up sticking.

Pretend you work in a record store(oh wait) and a customer comes in asking for recommendations. What would that customer have to ask for that would cause you to pick up a Momma’s Boy record?

Probably anything that would be garage or indie rock. Anything from Twin Peaks to Surfer Blood

Without throwing anyone under the bus, what’s been the strangest show you’ve ever played?

The strangest one we’ve probably ever played was a high school dance for some cash. We’ve also played a show as a sack lunch in basement.
