“I’m loving what these guys have done and can’t wait to see “Skum Rocks” out in theaters,” said Jon. “This took balls to pull off and they did it. Just wish I could have been here for the March 5h show.”
“When I heard that Jon was in town I was stoked,” said lead singer Hart Baur. “Castle is one of the only shows I watch and his work on the show is second to none. Plus, he is an amazing musician to boot, so it was great to sit back in a relaxed atmosphere and throw around some ideas.”
In town to meet with Sony Music Latin Executives about several upcoming projects for his indie music label MIDRATS Entertainment, Jon was excited to see what the band had on the horizon as well, as a collaboration of some sort is a possibility.
“Big fan of Castle, and would love to get into the studio with Jon at some point, “said lead guitarist John Eaton. “He is a very creative and innovative artist and to those who know us, know those are the people we like to work with.”
Having secured a Sony imprint deal, MIDRATS will serve as a platform for Jon and a new series he’s developing that is Latin-based, where all original music will be produced and distributed through MIDRATS and Sony as well as a new Music endeavor with Seamus Dever who plays his partner on ABC’s Castle. “I am really excited about the future,” added Jon. “Things are moving.”
While mum on an eighth season of Castle, he did say “it is a great cast and we love working with each other, so if we get one more season, than great.”
“Jon is an extremely talented performer, anyone who has seen or heard his work knows this. Was great to catch up and hopefully we can do something in the future, schedules permitting, of course ” added Hart.
The band gave Jon a vintage concert T-Shirt as well as a tank top from Tommy Craig to give to his Castle co-star Stana Katic. “We used to hang out in LA,” said drummer Tommy Craig. ” She is a great kid and I wanted her to have the tank as a wedding gift.”
“A great lunch,” added Jon.
Jon dined on a hamburger panini with mozzarella cheese and grilled onions, accompanied by seasoned fresh cut fries, while John went with a classic Rueben with potato salad topped with sprinkled paprika. Hart chose the panini as well, but added fresh mushrooms and a side of cole slaw. “The mushrooms really make that.” he said.
