Official Queen Extravaganza Q&A with lead vocalist Marc Martel
October 1st 2013

• How do you prepare for each show? Any rituals?

Generally, I work out and then do vocal warm up.

• How do you unwind after a show?

Some of us will hang out backstage with a glass of wine and will talk about how things went.

• For you, what’s the best part of the show?

I can’t think of one night when the crowd isn’t on their feet for “We Are The Champions”. Whenever that songs starts, they have to stand up, it's just a great feeling.

• What are your impressions of meeting the fans every night?

It's awesome! It’s something that is very important to me.

• What one item do you miss most from home?

My back deck.

• Which band mate has the best hair?

Brian Gresh.

• Do your band mates have any funny (odd) quirks or habits?

Brian Gresh has "Greshisms" which are just unbelievable things that come out of his mouth. He just processes information differently than the rest of us.

• What are your thoughts on touring the UK?

Very excited.

Official Queen Extravaganza Q&A with Music Director and Keyboard Player Brandon Ethridge

• How do you prepare for each show? Any rituals?

I've recently started a new pre-show ritual. Besides playing piano and singing backing vocals during the show, I have to start, stop and advance the video with my left foot. It's making my brain explode. So I'm going to start running through the video cues before each show until I can do it in my sleep. 

• How do you unwind after a show?

Chatting, joking and drinking with the band and crew. 

• For you, what’s the best part of the show?

The transition from “Love Of My Life” to “Don't Stop Me Now”. I won't tell you how it works. Come see the show!

• Favorite song in the show?

Undoubtedly “Love of My Life”. The intimacy, intricacy and beauty of that song blows my find every night. “Under Pressure” is a close second. And so is “Don't Stop Me Now”. 

• What are your impressions of meeting the fans every night?

The fans are so appreciative of our hard work. They never fail to tell us how much we amaze them. 

• What one item do you miss most from home?

My kitchen!!

• Which band mate has the best hair?

Mr. Brian Gresh. 

• Do your band mates have any funny (odd) quirks or habits?

Tyler is the best mannered individual I've ever encountered. He says “sorry” and “excuse me” even when he doesn't need to. Brian manages to misunderstand everything that’s said in the funniest way possible. Sometimes I think he’s just kidding. 

• What are your thoughts on touring the UK?

I am pumped!!!!!! I've always loved London, but it's the only place I know in the UK. I can't wait to see all the other great cities and towns there.

• How do you prepare for each show? Any rituals?

The only ritual that I do every night is the vocal rehearsal with the rest of the band. I need to make sure I’m ready to do this show every night. 

• How do you unwind after a show?

I usually hang out for a little while, have drink and a snack.

• For you, what’s the best part of the show?

It’s a tie between my drum solo and the songs I sing in the show. It’s fun to be in the spotlight!

• Favorite song in the show?

That’s a tough one. I really like playing “The Show Must Go On” and also “Radio Gaga”.

• What are your impressions of meeting the fans every night?

It’s always fun because they are really excited to meet us.

• What one item do you miss most from home?

Sweet iced tea.

• Which band mate has the best hair?

Francois-Olivier Doyon

• Do your band mates have any funny (odd) quirks or habits?

There’s Brian and his butt-scooting races. He shakes so hard he bounces himself off the ground. It’s pretty funny.

• What are your thoughts on touring the UK?

It’s definitely going to be the highlight of the year for me. Most of my favorite bands are from the UK, so it’s like going to the motherland. I can’t wait.

Official Queen Extravaganza Q&A with vocalist Jennifer Espinoza!

• How do you prepare for each show? Any rituals?

I sit in the dressing room for about an hour and a half, just alone to clear my mind and clear my spirit. I relax until I hit the stage and then I become another person. And we all do vocal warm ups about 20 minutes before show. I do always pray before every single show. 

• How do you unwind after a show?

Take a deep breath, smile, laugh it all out because it’s a great show each time. 

• For you, what’s the best part of the show?

Everything!! Just being on stage is awesome.

• Favorite song in the show?

“Stone Cold Crazy” is my favorite song in the show, although I don’t sing in that one. My favorite song to perform is “Dragon Attack”.

• What are your impressions of meeting the fans every night?

Everyone is different in their own ways. They make me feel wanted and happy.

• What one item do you miss most from home?

My Pink Floyd blanket.

• Which band mate has the best hair?

That’s a tough one…I think I like Tyler’s hair.

• What are your thoughts on touring the UK?

Super super excited. I’ve haven’t been overseas, so the first time is going to be great.

Next up: Drum machine Tyler Warren
