Jersey Boys Jonathan Capeci, Joey Beretta and Anthony Genca picked up and moved to Nashville a couple of years ago. And now that the album, Since Our Departure — that they set out to make there — is just about ready, it’s time for them to hit the road. Perfect timing for a road trip, playing dates between NYC and Los Angeles for the next few months.
But getting to this place hasn’t been an easy road. The band got together in 2009 and had some initial success, releasing singles independently. Their songs “are about a lot of different things,” Capeci explained in a recent phone interview. They cover everything from “the feeling you get when you mess up and want a do-over” or “love” or “not giving up. It took a lot of refining to find the right mix.” And Nashville “is great for anyone involved in music. Slow-paced — it’s different from home — but it has been great for us” he told us.
He went on to share his best advice. “If I could go back to my younger self, I’d spend the time. Spend every day practicing and learning what it means to be in this business — things beyond just being in a band too. Become the best at what you do” — but also — “don’t be afraid to pursue your dreams.”
