Uh-Huh Baby Yeah!

"Our music is mostly about chasing women and being party animals."

Uh-Huh Baby Yeah! is the perfect band to listen to when getting ready to go out on the town or for background music at a party. Their music makes you want to get up and shake it on the dance floor. Members of the band, Kevin Fletcher (vocals), Sean Smith (drums), John Braboy (guitar), Chris Armstrong (bass), and Johnny Goebel (guitar), get together and play music that they love and that they know their fans will love to party too. They have had a big year so far and 2011 is looking to be even bigger for these guys. I asked lead singer Kevin Fletcher some questions about the band and their future. Read the entertaining answers below for some laughs.

Q. What was your reasoning behind changing your name from “Creatures!” to “Uh-huh Baby Yeah!”?

A. We’ve never had good luck with band names and with the emergence of another band of the same name signing to Eulogy records, we knew our days as Creatures! were numbered. So we decided to name our band after our first single “Uh Huh Baby Yeah” that way we’d never have to worry about having the same band name as someone else ever again… plus it sounds sexy.

Q. You were just recently signed to indie label “Little Heart Records”, are you
guys excited about the opportunity to have the chance for you music to be
heard by a larger audience?

A. Our main goal has always been to try to reach as many people as possible, and this label has really helped us. Our current record is now available worldwide thanks to digital mediums like iTunes and Amazon (iLike, Shockhound, Napster, email me and I’ll burn you a copy, etc. etc.). Our goal is to be on every iPod in existence.

Q. You guys have an E.P. out called, “Sex Panther!”. It definitely grabbed my
attention. Is there any meaning behind it?

A. Besides an obvious Anchorman reference, we chose the name because its fun, and we don’t take ourselves too seriously. And also because our music is mostly about chasing women and being party animals. Sex Panther.

Q. Is there a full-length album in talks for release?

A. Most Definitely. We are heading to New York for two weeks this October to do our full length titled “Till Death Do Us Party” with producer Joe Costable (Neon Trees, InnerParty System, Good Charlotte). It’s more a continuation of “Sex Panther!”, with a little more party. There will be between 10-12 tracks on the record with only 2 or 3 from the EP. LOTS of new tunes.

Q. What does the year 2011 hold for the band?

A. We’ll be doing a lot of promotion for “Till Death Do Us Party”. The album will drop in March, with extensive touring to follow. Signing with a larger label, the shows getting bigger and better. We also foresee: Radio Play. TV Appearances. Music Videos. VMA awards. Drinking with Ke$ha. Getting turned down by Taylor Swift. Buying a yacht. Touring Japan. Quitting our day jobs, some of us moving out of our mom’s house, others getting bigger houses.

Q. What has been your favorite show you guys have ever played?

A. We always enjoy the shows where we get to play with either our friends’ bands or when we play with established artists, so when we did Warped Tour in 2009 it was an awesome mix of both. One particular date we were in Cincinnati, it was pouring rain all morning, and just as we played, the sun came out, and we played our little Ernie Ball stage to around 1,000 kids. On previous dates, we had played to maybe 100 at best. It was absolutely amazing, and if we didn’t have the pictures to prove it, we probably would have thought it was all a dream.

Q. Is there a favorite city you all have played in?

A. Hmmm… anywhere in North Carolina. The state breeds talented bands. And everyone is always so nice, whether its a fan (we do well in NC), a random person in the audience, or a member of one the supporting bands. We have made such good connections/friendships/bromances that will stay with us forever. Shout out to our NC homies in Secret Lives!, RBTS Win!, Harvard, Nova Echo, the Campaign 1984, En Serenade, and Embracing Goodbye.

Q. Who are some of your biggest influences?

A. We absolutely love Michael Jackson, always have from little up. You may be able to tell that by Sean’s sweet MJ tattoo! Other bands/artists we’re obsessed with are Queen, Motley Crue, Saves The Day, Jimmy Eat World, Glassjaw, just to name a few.

Q. If you could pick any band to open for, who would it be and why?

A. Michael Jackson and/or Queen. You would be in the essence of arguably the single greatest artists, singers, musicians that have ever lived.

Q. If you were stranded on an island for the rest of your life and could only
bring one of your songs to listen to, which one would it be and why?

A. We have quite a few brand new songs in the works.. but ultimately it would have to be “Uh Huh Baby Yeah”. Its a party starter, and our namesake, and hopefully we could use it to seduce Kate, Claire, Sun, Juliet, or some of the “Other” babes stranded on the island with us
