Hi Roy, thanks for your mail my friend and I hope you are well,

I'm doing OK, thank you for asking - I've been getting some good attention
from the quacks here in U.K., it's all about management rather than cure
but hey...

I've even been talking with a cool producer in Valencia, Spain about the
possibility of collaborating on some new tunes so I'll tell you how that
goes later on in the year...

- all the very best Roy and thanks for keeping in touch,

kind regards & much love to you and family,

cheers,

Jamie

Yesterday I had lunch with a good friend of mine, Bruce Neviaser.  He said his band was playing near Lake Waubesa Beach here in Wisconsin.  I thought maybe I’d ride my bike out to see them.  So my wife and I jumped on the bikes and rode to the gig.  Great ride, but even better music. Their band, Primitive Culture, has been around Madison for a long time and are as “in-sync” as I have ever heard. They play the songs the crowd wants to hear, throw in a few originals and nail every song. They are fronted by veteran performer, writer and singer, Dave Hecht.  His guitar leads were smokin’ and his vocals are polished.  The rhythm section, Bruce on bass, his brother Jerry on drums and Phil Lyons on percussion. These guys are about as tight as a rhythm section can be. It was fun to watch and very inviting. Veteran sax player Bob Corbit added brilliant support and leads to Dave Hecht’s excellent vocals. Corbit has played with just about everyone on the planet and has great instincts with his instrument. And on occasion, Phil picked up the trombone and tore up a solo. He is very good on multiple instruments.  A band doesn’t get this good without playing hundreds of gigs. These are 5 guys who have all paid their musical dues and it shows. Great work guys and thanks for the great music.

We'll have to keep an eye out for a chance to see this group.  There's nothing like hearing a band that puts it all together.  Interesting sidenote, they don't appear to have a Facebook page, they're not on Broadjam or at least I couldn't find them, and their newsletter signup on their website doesn't work.  They need to get a marketing person involved for sure.

Congrats to a great studio and engineer.
 
New hardware for the studio from last nights Madison Area Music Association Awards
Landon Arkens was awarded engineer of the year and Blast House Studios won studio of the year.
Hats off to everyone that makes recording a profession and passion, it's a tough road but we do what we love and that's what keeps us going. *not to mention all the great music we get to work on.
