SPB: Coming into the Philadelphia music scene, what were your expectations (if any) and have those early expectations and perceptions changed over time?
Scheuermann: Every time I'd visit Philly, I was always inspired. I'd always loved the people here and the music was just so great and diverse. So my expectations were somewhat based in factual experience.
I was excited to become entrenched in the music community. These past months have only further solidified my opinion of the city and people. So many great bands/artists. I'm getting a better grasp of the areas too: how there are different groups of friends/musicians in different neighborhoods of Philly. I feel pleasantly overwhelmed being here and I'm looking forward to meeting more people and experiencing more music and art.
I could name 6 million great bands from this city, but instead I'll end with a timeless quote from limp bizkit's driving force, Fred Durst: "I get silly when I play in Philly."
