Getting to Know Zander Michigan: The Ultimate Interview
You get a fun Q&A session and an inside look at this big talent’s even bigger personality!
Most memorable music experience?
There are too many to count but one of my favorites is meeting this little dude named Jaxon at the Ann Arbor Summer Festival and inviting him on stage to sing Folsom Prison Blues. He knew all the words and was like 5 years old!! What a cool kid! I wish I could be that cool at 5 years old! Here is a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TP8JOKFnW40
If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be and why?
I think I would be a palm tree because I love warm weather. What could be better than literally sitting in the sunshine every single day?? Ooh! Or maybe an olive tree! They live in hot weather too and provide delicious olive oil for the world. It’s like a metaphor for my music. Providing delicious tunes for the world. And I’m Greek too so that fits.
Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or 100 duck-sized horses?
Why fight them?? When you can work together to take the horse-sized duck on tour and make killer money showcasing the weirdness. The duck and I would split the profits 50/50.
What is the funniest/best/scariest thing that has happened to you recently?
Every day is the funniest/best/scariest day. Funny because life is too short not to make jokes and laugh all the time. Best because every day is a gift that’s why they call it the present. Scariest because life is hard sometimes but totally worth it because being tough builds character. That was the absolute worst answer ever but it’s true!
Do you have any idea why tennis balls are fuzzy?
Because dogs love fuzzy things. Tennis balls are made for dogs right?
If you could only choose one song to play every time you walked into a room for the rest of your life, what would it be?
“I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred. As I’m typing this I’m laughing and gyrating my hips at the same time at the thought of this actually happening.
Besides being a talented musician, what other talent(s) do you have?
I’m very talented at eating anything that is put in front of me. I am working on becoming tri-lingual. I am the master of puns. My skill-set runs deep as you can tell.
If you could spend the day with anyone in the world, past or present, who would it be and why?
Either meditating with the Dalai Lama in India or partying with Anthony Bourdain in Tokyo. Not on the same day preferably.
A penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?
“Donde estoy?” (Where am I?) OR “Is it still Cinco de Mayo?”. Also who cares why he’s there, let’s celebrate! That would be awesome!
Who would win a fight between Spiderman and Batman?
I think Batman (Christian Bale, not Ben Affleck). He just seems more solid and has a lot more fire power. Webs are no match for billions!
What do you think of garden gnomes?
I think of Travelocity. Hahahaha. Does that make me a good American?
You’ve been given an elephant. You can’t give it away or sell it. What would you do with the elephant?
Ride it!!! I would sell my car, buy a trumpet, and ride the elephant everywhere. And blare the trumpet as we come into view! Her name would be peanut and she would be my new best friend. 🙂
