Even though the Soul Shack Studio is brand-spanking new, it is getting some upgrades that are all about separation. In order to get good, clean sounds, Jeff is constructing an Amp Room to separate the bass and guitar amps from the main studio, as well as a vocal booth, complete with padded walls and new mic stands.
We’ve already had several groups come and record, and currently Voodoo King is laying down some tracks. Word has it that Jeff has hit the nail on the head (or should I say hit the stick on the cymbal…) when it comes to a great drum sound.
The Studio is up and running, well at least walking. Jeff has recorded Gage and Clay performing O Holy Night and today Hayne Coleman from Hank Cole Band is here recording a great original tune!
Jeff and Mandy are working feverishly to learn all the gizmos in Pro Tools.
Guess I need to get on the ball. I haven’t updated here in awhile. First, a studio update. The painting is done, one pane of glass in the “drummer window” and the carpet!! The desk has been crafted, stained and protected. Jeff did a fabulous job! It’s a very nice piece of functional furniture. Only one more injury so far…cut his finger laying carpet.
Band will be performing tomorrow (Oct. 29) at LivingSocial’s Trucktoberfest. Not sure, but I think you had to buy tickets ahead of time for the event. However, we have a BIG show coming up November 19 in Kearnersville (near Winston-Salem, NC). Come out to the Bucked Up Super Saloon for a jammin’ good time. JGB will be the headliners. The opening band will be announced later.
New item–DOWNLOAD cards. We have new download cards that are also stickers that look just like the CD cover. Get yours for only $1.00!! You can download the entire CD from CD Baby. Can’t beat the price, can’t beat the music!!
Be looking for some fresh, new stuff coming out after the first of the year. Jeff has some really cool ideas up his sleeve!!
Nope, not ketchup!
The Sheetrock is done, the sanding behind us…today is painting day. Primer is done, Jeff is doing a superb job on the ceiling. Mandy is standing by to do the final wall coat. Discussions are occurring about the carpet and the completion of the drum window. The band is very excited at the progress that had been made this week…there is a light at the end of the tunnel!!
