Interview: Ronnie and Tyler from Spring Heeled Jack USA

spring heeled jack logoLast week we had the great pleasure of sitting down with Ronnie Ragona and Tyler Jones of CT Ska legends Spring Heeled Jack USA. We met up for drinks and falafel at the Middle East where they’ll be playing on Sunday, October 27.

We talked about what the guys have been up to, a bit about how and why they got back together in these last few years, shared stories from the road, and discussed upcoming shows and future recordings!

    1. Andy, there is definitely a lot of background noise. If you turn the youtube volume all the way up and the system audio at a reasonable level, it should be more audible. The audio was processed to reduce the noise, but it was only partially effective 🙁 We’ll do better next time!
