Skyline first formed in 2010 and ever since has been rocking the Fargo-Moorhead area. They pride themselves on putting on a show & giving what the crowd wants. So next time they’re playing they beg you to “Come get drunk and party with Skyline.”
Adam Roark: Drums, vocals
Tom Lunde: Bass, vocals
Aaron Pond: Guitar, vocals
What is Skyline all about?
Tom: We’re about putting on a show and having fun. We try and play a variety of music.
Adam: We try to get people involved a lot. We’re based towards rock but we’ve added some stuff so that we have dance, country and originals.
How long have you been together?
Adam: It’s been a little over two years.
What’s your favorite part of being in a band?
Tom: I love playing, just getting on stage every night and playing.
Adam: I think a huge part of it for me is the satisfaction of knowing people are having a good time and they’re really enjoying your music. One thing about us is that we’re the type of band that will practice a song until we get it damn near perfect, the way we want it before we present it to a crowd.
What’s your favorite concert story?
Tom: We got to open for Finger Eleven at the fair last year. It was cool to play with a national act on a big stage.
Adam: I thought it was quite funny one night when a friend of the band got on the stage and had a little too much to drink so he grabbed my guitar while playing and fell back first off a four or five foot stage.
Tom: He landed on his back and said, ‘I saved your guitar man.” We were all like, ‘Awesome!’ (Laughs)
Any idea when the new album is coming out?
Tom: We still have tracking and demoing to do so it’ll be a while.
Adam: There’s no hurry. There’s a ton of ideas out there but there’s no release date. It is in the works though.
Favorite song to play?
Tom: Personally my favorite song to play on bass is “Welcome to the Jungle.”
Adam: I’d agree with that. We thought it was going to be hard to learn but it was weird since we all knew it so well when we first practiced it out loud it was hella surpirsing how well it went. We click together really well. We read each other really well, especially if we’re playing original stuff. We can feel what’s going to happen.
How did you all meet?
Aaron: Adam and I had a band in high school and we went our own way for a while. I then met up with Tom shortly after and we were in a band together called Kill Baxter and Adam and I were in a band together called Never The Less and we were like, ‘Hey, let’s get a band together.”
Do you have visions of making it big someday?
Tom: Absolutely. We’d love to make it big. We’re going to take it one venue and one band at a time. We’re trying to get out of town as much as possible to build that fan base up.
Favorite venue to play?
Tom: Street dances are always fun to play. Anytime we play at Windbreak and Big D’s they’re a lot of fun to play. Our friends and fans come support us. It’s always a good time.
What’s something we don’t know about Skyline?
Tom: I used to be in gymnastics. (Laughs)
Aaron: We recorded our first album in a Dairy Queen.
