MEET THE KING GUYS: Sister Jennifer Hargreaves-Pawliczak

Jennifer Hargreaves-Pawliczak, singer with The King Guys
It can't be denied; there's something about sibling vocal harmonies that just plain sound good, and my sister Jen nails 'em here at Mick Hargreaves and The King Guys. I don't even have to look at her onstage; the parts are always there, and rock-solid. Come say hello when the band has our year-end "company party", open to the public at the Stephen Talkhouse (Amagansett, NY) 8pm Saturday December 15th, 2013. Gene Casey & The Lone Sharks take the stage at 10pm.

We posed some questions for Jen earlier in 2012:

Name some things you like.
My kids, the peeper frogs at my house in spring and diminishing the number of things on my mental to do list.

Now identify the exact opposites of those things.
Other peoples kids, the traffic noise outside my office when you open the window on a spring day and swimming in my mental to do list.

What's so great about this music thing? I don't get it.
It's extremely liberating.

If you could eat one person from the Civil War who would you eat?
Ummmm, Grant had a lot of meat on him...but don't think i could eat a Union man.

Would you rather: Have a car that flies but can only run on apple cores OR Be able to produce cooked frogs legs whenever you want to, up to 20 times per day?
Flying Car, I like apples.

Hey, where'd ya get that?
Salvation Armani.

Please detail your most embarrassing memory involving an animal.
Got nothing here.

Would you rather: eBay your groceries for a year OR Have tiny light-sabers for fingernails?
Ebay groceries - that walk from the driveway to my house carrying the groceries for the last 8 years has been killing me.

Please theorize on why manhole covers are round.
No sharp corners.

What's the favorite "can't do without" instrument you own, and... wanna sell it?
Voice / No.

How many gas stations would you say there are in the United States, and how have we become so good at striking oil wherever one is built?

Tons.....should have bought one early on and franchised.

Symmetry: Overrated, or Underrated?
I like it in quilts and hemlines.

Are you gonna finish that?
Always.  Lifetime achievement award in the Mickey Mouse clean plate club.

If you were a car, what kind of salad dressing would you choose?
I'm an Alfa Romeo.....creamy Italian.

Can you describe an atom?
Complex and explosive.

There's no keyboard player in Mick Hargreaves & The King Guys. Why?
Hmmmmm, i hadn't noticed.

Favorite beer?
Cold on my patio, twilight with friends, grill going.

Worst beer?
The one you try to have the day after you had too many.

How good are you at faking sincerity?
Depends how well i know the person asking the question.

Should it be illegal to play harmonica while driving?
Only while wearing your head gear - the original hands free device!

Next up: Platooned drummers Chris Mehos and Tom Ryan.
