          In our case, The Gaffer is a four piece San Diego band that consists of high school buddies just doing what they love to do, play music. I was honored to have been a guest at their most recent show on May 26th at The Griffin and can honestly say I truly enjoyed myself, the music, and the people. I met with The Gaffer before the show and was thrilled to do a live interview with three of the four members, Martin Coughlin, singer/songwriter, guitarist, and keyboardist; Dave O’Reily, lead guitarist and background vocals; and the bassist, Scott Mitchell. 

T: On behalf of Tunage Magazine, Thank you so much for taking the time before your show to do an interview with me. It really is very much appreciated. Can you tell me a little bit about yourselves? Who do you sound like?

Martin: I think the sound is a little bit of a mix between Zeppelin and Oasis

T: Who are some of your influences?

Dave: My influences range anywhere from Led Zeppelin to Pink Floyd to Bad Religion

Scott: I like Iron Maiden
