Formed in 2013, Hard Working Americans is a well-seasoned all-star group composed of Dave Schools and Duane Trucks of Widespread Panic, Todd Snider and Chad Staehly of Great American Taxi, Daniel Sproul of Rose Hill Drive, and multi-instrumentalist Jesse Aycock. The group is currently in the midsts of their fall tour, which spans through to the beginning of November, in support of their new live album, We’re All In This Together. Yesterday, Hard Working Americans found the time to stop by the offices of Adult Swim, making an appearance on the network’s eccentric program, FishCenter Live—a bizarre talk show that narrates footage of tropical fish in a fish tank.
During their live performance on FishCenter Live for the show’s fall concert series, Hard Working Americans opened their time on the show with renditions of “Half Ass Moses” and “Burn Out Shoes” before moving into a light-hearted interview segment (with the camera view shifted back a stream of the fish tank), during saw the group and the show’s hosts taking call-in questions. The format is definitely one of the more strange settings for an interview, but it’s worth a watch. You can check out a replay of the Hard Working American’s appearance of FishCenter Live here, with their segment starting around 9:37.
