<p>After hearing the indie rock band <strong>Hear Tonight</strong>’s music, it’s no surprise that most of the members are influenced by pop-punk, aside from the odd man out: their guitarist.</p>

<p>We’re stretching out to Youngstown, OH this week to meet The Vindys, a group that’s got a clear affinity for soul and jazz.</p>
<p>“We all have jazz backgrounds. Scott and I met, we went to Slippery Rock University and did music education. I met Ed when I moved to Youngstown. We did our masters in Jazz Studies. Jackie, she did a music degree down in Daytona, a sound recording degree. Most of us in the group have some kind of training, academic-wise.”</p>
