If you haven’t heard of The Mini Band, then you’re welcome. They’re 5 lads, 8-11 years old, and they’re more talented than 90% of the bands out there today. The best part is they’re not annoying hipsters with attitudes who believe they invented the mustache. Sh*t, they can’t even grow mustaches. They’re just innocent little kids who have a talent to share and have a good time practicing and performing.
As I swiped my way through news on the Flipboard iPhone app a couple nights ago, I kept seeing headlines for the “best dad ever” covering Depeche Mode songs with his kids. I watched the videos and had to talk to Dicken Schrader, the dad behind them.
Columbian-born Dicken Schrader, who won three golden internets for these videos, was nice enough to talk to us about his now-immortal father-son-daughter Depeche Mode covers. If you haven’t seen them yet because you’ve been camping in the Grand Canyon for the weekend, you can check them out along with our interview, after the hopperooski.
