Local band Don Juan is set to record this spring.

“We will be recording this spring, ” says John Dodge, guitarist, singer and songwriter. “There will be a product on the streets–on the airwaves, we hope–by the end of the summer.” Dodge has been with bandmate Don Cooper for almost 3 years.

Cooper had always been interested in singing and playing the guitar. However, he was on the fence for being in this type of profession. “I fought it for three years…I don’t think I can make a living doing it. So I’m just going to be an English teacher just in case,” said Cooper.

Last summer Don Juan had the opportunity to do a show in the New York club, Trax. They played with Jackson Browne and James Taylor, who are now both fans and supporters of Don Juan.

Dodge says, ” Nobody settles for anything less than the best.” The group squabbles “about fine points,”┬ábut the “creative tension” builds as the group molds a new song.

Dodge also comments, ” Writing songs isn’t easy…it’s tough, but it’s worth it.”
