The holiday season is officially over and I’m back in Brooklyn gearing up for the New Year. Yesterday I was in the studio in sort of an associate producer role for Jed Davis’ “Yuppie Exodus from DUMBO.” I always enjoy these sort of experiences where I’m acting as a consultant more-or-less, and I like it even more when people actually welcome my input, which was the case yesterday. The song came out great and I was very happy with the arrangement that I wrote. At the end of the session we recorded a bunch of us in the studio “partying it up” so that it sounds on the track like there’s an audience having a good time at a Dixieland jam. Being a musician can be so much fun!
The first performance of the year is coming up next week the Calvosa-Sullivan Project. We’re playing at Googie’s Lounge…which reminds me that we haven’t yet put a rehearsal together for next week…just ten days away on January 13th (yikes!). It should be awesome though. In November we went into the studio and recorded a four song demo that came out really nice. Our good friend Sam Minae is in the process of mixing the demo for us, and although I haven’t heard the finished product yet, I’m sure it’s going to be great. I’ll be posting the tracks soon to be sure. We’re also going to have a new Facebook page for this band real soon.
Looking forward to a great week. Stay warm everyone!
