The location of the interview was at Barber Bart in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Yes, we were in an actual barbershop! Before the interview we met the very dapper Barber Bart, the owner of Barber Bart.

We gave Bart and Jami special sneak peak of Metropolicks on Felicia's iPad mini. No one to date has seen the entire contents of Metropolicks. Everyone will have to wait until the pre-order period ends on November 23 to see and read it in its entirely. But for now, you can download three chapters for FREE from iTunes and the iBookstore just search for "Metropolicks book" there.

Barber Bart was not your average barbershop- notice the pool table smack dab in the middle of the room!

First we had to get "miked" for the interview. They actually had to run the microphone wire under our shirts.

The camera crew was had a great sense of humor and really put us at ease. They actually made it fun to "get miked."

It is always a bit nerve-wracking to have to speak with a camera rolling, but we all got through it fine.

They talked about how music has always been an important part of Jami's life, but that education always comes first. Jami is getting her PhD in statistics now.  Howard did a really great job on the segment with Jami's parents.
