The Daily Tar Heel: Tell me about Coco Amino. How did the band come to be?
Jon McClain: I moved back to this area about two and a half years ago and I wanted to do some sort of musical project. I went through some trial and error years with different styles and different people and that kind of thing. Finally, I just decided that I was going to get together a couple of old buddies and my brother to see what happens. We started having fun and it went from there.
