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.
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 covers 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.
Here is a sampling of tunes from our show…
