It’s hump day folks, so lets take a look back in time to this freshly released early recording of The Clams and I, filmed December of last year in beautiful Bonita Springs, FL at the Sugar Shack Sessions:
Feels like forever ago! Also, have you seen our latest music video for Animal? If not, hear ya go, and if so, show a friend or two!:
Happy hump day folks!
Have you streamed our newest music video for Animal yet? If not, take a minute to check out the video above and share it with a few friends! The track’s audio was engineered and produced by Craig Schumacher, a Tucson local, and tonight we’ll be holding a release party at the Hotel Congress (in Tucson) to honor this wonderful video’s release in the flesh!
Local Tucson bands Two Door Hatchback and Sweet Ghosts will kick off the show at 9pm and 10pm respectively, and then we’ll close out the night with a big one starting at 11pm. Show is free to all. Come get down and celebrate this wildness!
Salutations, friends! For this edition of BBR I’ve chosen a record I recently picked up by a native of Colorado!
Mr Paul Whiteman, “The King of Jazz,” folks
I’ll admit, when I first bought this album, I was was really just interested in hearing the arrangement of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue (the first recording of this song ever by the way), but after reading more about Mr, Whiteman on the back side of the album, I had found something much more special! Paul Whiteman was a prolific big band and Jazz composer, having written over 3000 arrangements for his band and others. During the 20s, he became the most popular band leader with an imposing group of up to 35 musicians. By 1922, he was in charge of over 28 ensembles on the east coast and was earning over a $1,000,000 a year. Damn!
So here is a trimmed version of Rhapsody from the movie “King Of Jazz”
Colorado has been so good to us, and we still have more show coming up. Today we’re in beautiful Bond at State Bridge! Showtime is 5:30pm! Come check us out y’all!
Cannot wait to be in Colorado for 2 beautiful weeks! Playing in Boulder this Friday at the Gold Hill Inn & Denver this Saturday at the Bluebird Theater w/ Atomga!
Can’t wait till then? Catch us tonight in Lawrence, KS at the Bottleneck! 2 sets – show starts at 9pm.
