The three things that 17-year-old Jason Burke (as portrayed by David Neff) loves more than anything else are family, rocking out and family. With the assistance of his fellow fraternal quadruplet brothers, Jason was able to combine these three elements into Tucson's newest and hottest teen sensation, The Fourmal. The Burke brothers recently finished shooting a music video for their song "Girl Hold on Girl," which debuts at the Loft's Friday-night short-film contest on March 7.
What was the first concert you ever saw?
I think it might have been the Backstreet Boys. I don't know. I was really young.
What CDs are in your changer right now?
The Jonas Brothers, the Everly Brothers, the Allman Brothers, the Doobie Brothers, the Blues Brothers and the Smothers Brothers.
How many total albums do you own (CDs, vinyl, cassettes, 8-tracks)?
Well, if you include vinyl and 8-tracks ... none.
Do you download music, and if so, legally or illegally?
Legally, of course, but only as ringtones.
What was the first album you owned?
Baby Beluga by Raffi. There were just some classic licks on there, and the bass line in "Joshua Giraffe" is one of the sickest I've heard to this day.
What song would you like to have played at your funeral?
"Staying Alive" by the Bee Gees.
Musically speaking, what do you love that your friends don't know about? What's your favorite guilty pleasure?
That "Want-a-Fanta" song has been stuck in my head for the past three years.
What band or artist changed your life, and how?
The Fourmal. The first time I heard our song "Girl Hold on Girl," I knew I would someday become a musician.
Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?
I'd probably agree with whoever was holding the figurative gun to my head. But I would hope he likes Revelation by 98 Degrees, too.
