Eric caught up recently with Rich Fuchs, winner of our SXSW Gear Giveaway and member of the VH1 award winning band Fancy Reagan, via Skype. Rich was relaxing a bit in Vegas before preparing for the band’s March Madness Jamfest performance at the NCAA Final Four.

Things have really picked up for Fancy Reagan over the past year after they appeared on VH1’s Make a Band Famous and signed up with Republic Records. They also were picked as a VH1 Artist You Oughta Know and dropped their first single in February 2015. Rich talks a bit about the band’s working relationships and hauling gear around as a gig/session guitarist including the recent FAA ruling on traveling with instruments.
