Nine Questions 

Pianist and singer Jeff Eckenrode's band, Sumit Dux, have just released their first full-length, Trapped in the Bedroom. All three of Sumit Dux's members are 21 or younger, and despite having only been a band for a little more than a year, they've already released two EPs prior to Trapped in the Bedroom. Trapped in the Bedroom evokes Ben Folds and flaunts a keen pop sensibility. With this much output and growth already, Sumit Dux is definitely a local band to watch. They're performing next at Hoops for Heart, an American Heart Association benefit, at 7 p.m., Sunday, April 27, at the La Paz Residence Hall on the UA campus.

What was the first concert you ever saw?

Weird Al Yankovic, Celebrity Theatre (in Phoenix), 2000.

What CDs are in your changer right now?

Trapped in the Bedroom, Sumit Dux; ... And the Battle Begun, RX Bandits; Mind Control, Stephen Marley; The Ultimate Collection, Jackson 5; Outlandos d'Amour, The Police.

How many total albums do you own (CDs, vinyl, cassettes, 8-tracks)?

Wow, wouldn't want to count them all. I might die trying.

Do you download music, and if so, legally or illegally?

I pay for what I download. It's hot.

What was the first album you owned?

Tubthumper, Chumbawamba.

What song would you like to have played at your funeral?

"In da Club," 50 Cent.

Musically speaking, what do you love that your friends don't know about? What's your favorite guilty pleasure?

Hanson. But it's cool if I tell you; most of my friends can't read, anyway.

What band or artist changed your life, and how?

Andrew McMahon showed me that piano players could get chicks.

Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?

Legend, Bob Marley and the Wailers.
