The most popular show that “Me and My Baby Band” performs is our “Blast from the Past Oldies Review”. It’s a fun mix of popular tunes from the ’50’s, 60’s and 70’s…rock and roll, British Invasion, surf music, Motown, classic country and Golden Oldies. We even toss out interesting music trivia that goes along with the songs.
August, 2013: Our new 12-string guitar inspired us to dust off our Boss BR-800 and try our hand at some live recording ~ sitting in front of of the machine, pushing a button and singing and playing together to capture the whole song in one take. No recording multiple tracks and putting them together in the end. It’s an ego-busting experience, and almost impossible to get everything right at one time. But it does capture the energy of live music that is lost in studio generated perfection. That said, we offer two tunes to get the show on the road, so to speak….and promise to add more live recordings soon!
“Because” Written and recorded by The Dave Clark Five in 1964
“Yellow Submarine” 1966 hit by The Beatles
December, 2012: After 3 years of performing together, “Me and My Baby Band” decided it was time to create a music video to chronicle our performance career, as we sing and play Bob Dylan’s “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere” in the background.
During the summer of 2011, we recorded tracks for our fist CD at Fox Run Studios in Newberry, Florida, with Rick Randlett. We released the CD, titled “Smokin’ Oldies” in October, 2011. Here are some sample tracks…
