Rock At Night had the pleasure of speaking with Gainesville-Florida natives Less Than Jake at the Vans Warped Tour Press and Media Event held at Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida on March 22, 2016. The band,who has been touring on the Vans Warped Tour since 1999, is proud to continue its tradition this year. Wearing red, white, and blue “political” shirts, their platform is to “make Warped Tour great again” this Summer.
Less Than Jake discussed how the music industry has evolved through the years, their experience with fans across the globe, the upcoming Vans Warped Tour, and some of their favorite non-profit organizations. They then performed an exhilarating three-song set during the mini-concert at the event.

I grew up in a household full of rock music, studied journalism in college, and then became a scientist.Although my science career has served me well, music has always played a major role in my life. I grew up reading "Creem" magazine; I play several musical instruments as a "hobby";and it seems a camera has always been in my hand. Now, I am combining what I love the most--music and photography--serving as editor of Rock At Night. My motto: life is short...no regrets. Chyrisse
