It can build to built into it no matter where we grow up or who we are and what we're exposed soon and are used. It's it were musical creatures and that's why we we all get together and we we re very kid Garnett. We we gather in the in the summertime listen and you know and and we make me let everyone know us you know look at it it's it's it's it's the one person audience sort or there's 101000 people it's. It's something that that we have to do and that's something that we talked about in the band firmer like the troops like. It's it's such it's such a natural thing for us to pull off an a so enjoyable. To watch people smile back content to back that.
