Despite being on the rise in popularity, the singer says,
"We don't have goals, really. We're Zen like that." He does hold down an
actual day job, as do other members of the band. When asked if he'd quit
it and do this full-time, "Sure. I don't think anyone I know
wouldn't say yes to that." Fair enough. His bandmates -- guitarist
Jacob, drummer Jose, bassist Wong Chong, and Mike on keys -- spend their
time at home and places out where getting high in public is acceptable.
"Just like everyone in a band in Miami," Saraiva says, "we hang at Churchill's every now
and then too."
As to what makes South Florida audiences unique,
he says the "babes." No doubt, but performing must appeal to him on
some other level as well. He jokingly notes about his favorite part of
performing, "Being worshiped by mindless drones [laughs]. Um,
probably hanging out with friends I don't see all the time." Their shows
definitely draw a crowd of friends, cooler-than-the-norm strangers,
music fanatics, and maybe a few drones. Mostly, though, Lil Daggers
perform a memorable show that warrants some level of crowd worship.
