"Paris"

Paragon Music Magazine - June 2006 - #16

"Yet another talented independent band from NJ is Paris. These guys have come a long way as musicians, changing not only their style, but even their name, just to prove how completely different they are now that they've grown. They're from north-eastern NJ, so check them out if they're playing in your town."

P: In the fall of 2001, you formed Paris, but the band had a different name back then, which was District Six. You describe the music as "obnoxious melodies over four chord progressions." I take it you no longer go for that sounds? If so, why not?

Frank: "District Six" was a pivotal point in our lives; to this day, it still reminds us of the love we had for the energy of music and what it can do to a person. At the time, we sang about what we knew, which wasn't much. Through music, we could really express ourselves. What really got us was the response we were getting.

Matthew: ::Laughs:: We've all learned to appreciate all types of music. At the time, District Six was what we were. I'd like to say we've grown musically in many ways. We're now searching for something deeper in our work.

P: Being an independent band from Jersey, it's obvious that you've most likely had to deal with playing shows at VFW's. How do you like performing at those shows? Do you think it helps broaden your fan base at all, or is it a waste of time considering the other venues availible for shows?

Matthew: We enjoy playing for all crowds, whether it's for three kids at a VFW or some packed club. I do believe there is more personal connection at VFW's, firehouses, etc. That's exactly where we all grew up.

Frank: The VFW's and lodges of the tri-state scene have become like second homes to us for the better part of our lives. And although the venues can be rough sometimes, the intimate setting can be so amazing. With every show we play, we see the response: we meet new people from across the country.

Bio

With many bands trying to make an name for themselves, it seems Paris is one of the few staying loyal to the music. There sound can be described as "eclectic, yet intriguing". They have a knack for writing complex and intricate music that is still very flowing and pleasurable. Combining elements of rock and drum and bass, their live show is truely stunning and they convert a new group of fans every time they play.
