The cold New York Winter has arrived and my mind has been drifting off to thoughts of Floridian sunshine, bling bling, a skimpy thong and sunsets drenched in cocktails… the universe honored my thoughts with a sweet email from the Orlando band, Great Deceivers. They sent us some MP3′s.. we enjoyed them and now we got an interview for you all to check out and some Mp3′s to enjoy. Florida is also the place I will be spending New Year’s Eve!!! My girlfriend and I just booked tickets to Miami to attend a big party being thrown by Club Kid Legendary Susanne Bartsch and Kayvon Zand. I’ve never been to Miami before so if any of you readers are natives or have any tips to toss my way please let me know… Now, let’s get back to the Great Deceivers interview we did with one of the members, Max!

Great Deceivers: For the most part we’re all based out of Central Florida. We’ve been playing together for a couple of years now with the exception of our drummer, Josh, who was added to the current line-up only about 5 or 6 months ago.

After becoming close friends we decided to base a band around songs we’d individually worked on, seeing how we could add group instrumentation, harmony, etc. I think that collaboration has become a huge part of our process, we encourage each other to suggest, criticize and help develop everything brought to the table in a group setting.
