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.

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.
