In the beginning…

…there was Verducci Hall at S.F. State, jamming and goofing off in the rehearsal spaces in the bowels of the dorms.  Then Jeff and I started just jamming, spending many long hours experimenting with song ideas while working on vocal harmonies, which inevitably had us playing a lot at the Owl and Monkey’s Open mike Thursdays, before getting our own gigs and officially performing as Twain and Pehrson.  Of course, our musical evolution sent some of us along divergent paths, only to somehow meander back together years later with some old AND new friends.  I think the Fall Risk represents special relationships, both past and present, coming together to offer up a different sound of the same original music many have come to love while keeping the spirit of the old Twain and Pehrson/Box Set sound alive and well.  And we’ll obviously have the chance to start coming up with newly crafted songs in the not too distant future.

The night is young.
