Where did you meet your band Obsession and how long have you been together now?
Dante King approach in high school about missing band practice and I did have a clue what he was talking about but I wasn’t intrigued.

How would you describe Obsession’s music/art/entertainment for a public audience who may have never seen you before?
We are a Go-Go that has always had very good vocalist and a high level of musicianship.

What do you think makes you and your style unique from other artists?
Although we are a Go-Go band Obsession can and has played all forms of music. More then just a swing band we do way more than swing beat over covers.

You have been in this go-go music industry for many years now. What are some of the changes that you have noticed over the years?
Been in it since 1986…. when you played at a show with multiple bands you had originals you had bands putting on a Show. 90s became more gangster focus less on music more on crank. 2000s Grown and Sexy/Crank Bands/ Bounce Beat.
