For the past ten years, local punk-jazz heroes Sadhappy have been carving out their own unique musical niche; staying true to the vision that brought them together and keeping themselves challenged with the music they create. In March's Profiles, Editor Craig Young sits down with Sadhappy to discuss the band's past, their ongoing collaboration with Michael Manring, and where the next stop is on their super-sonic locomotive.
