The five members of Maine’s Pete Kilpatrick Band represent the changing face of the music business at a very local level. Unlike the stereotypical band of fresh-faced kids hoping to make it big, the members of this band are in their early 30s, with day jobs, homes, children and responsibilities. But they share a dream of making music their full-time jobs and are trying to seize the opportunities that changes in technology and the music business are presenting.
