Conversations with Missy: Phil Leavitt of dada and 7Horse

by Missy Wolf / 121 days ago / Comments

Returning for their 25 year anniversary tour, the band dada still has "it". They are gearing up to make their fans smile and forget all the negative in the world. With original members Phil Leavitt, Michael Gurley, and Joie Calio reuniting for this tour, fans have displayed their enthusiasm and anticipation.

I was excited to speak with Leavitt about his upcoming tour with dada, as our last conversation was focused on the band 7Horse and their recent tour from Living in a Bitch of a World. We laughed as we shared some fun moments including a review of the band 7Horse that was written in Spanish. Neither of us did well in Spanish for different reasons, but our stories were equally as cool. Okay, maybe mine was not as cool, but you can judge for yourself after watching our video.

While discussing the 25 year anniversary tour for dada, Leavitt surprised me with a situation that he himself was surprised by. I asked him if the situation is one that he had ever encountered in his career, as I was shocked by it. Wait until you hear what took place in Chicago.

I am really excited for the guys and the fans, as this tour promises to be a positive, high energy experience for all. Please make sure you check out their tour dates and catch them at a show near you. Do not forget to watch our full conversation as we shared quite a few stories and many laughs. Remember to follow them on social media too. ~Missy

About Missy Wolf

Missy Wolf Co-Founder, Editor, Journalist

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
