Interview with Derek Bohl

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

A few months back ago if you were to walk in to the Blue Light Live almost any night you would turn to the left then you would see Derek Bohl running the sound board. These days he is the one on stage, perusing his dreams.

He started to play music around age eleven when his were wanting to play music and wanted to start a band.But one of the things that really got him in to music was his school's concert band.

These days I would say Derek's music sounds like if early John Mayer and Switchfoot had a baby. Now that is just my opinion. His music is something to that needs to be listened to and enjoyed.

Derek: I would love to open up for Ed Sheeran or Dave Mattheews. It would be really cool to open up for some of my influences.

Derek: I would have to say
1. John Mayer: Continuum
2. Maroon 5; Songs about Jane
