GoPro Bass Guitar mount for a performance of “Disaster”

Nice water bottle and Saxamaphone!

I finally attached a GoPro sticker mount to my bass. This will be the view for a while. I hope it doesn’t leave a sticky goo if I decide to remove the mount.

This recording of “Disaster” is from the third performance of our first week. “Disaster” is from from the musical “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying”.

I am performing bass with a bunch of cool cats like:

Martin Lang is the Director
Phil Carillo Music Director, and playing drum set as well.
Anthony Crespo on piano
Alex Sadnik on reeds
Paul Curtis on reeds
Mark Bush on trumpet
Adam Gerling on trumpet
Taylor Covey on trombone

Rehearsing “Disaster” from How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying

Bosco High

Did I forget to mention I am working on a two week run of a musical? I am learning lots! It feels good to be playing in a small group of horns… like big band!

We are starting our second week this Thursday the 18th of March. Performances will last until the following Sunday the 22nd.

The actors/students are very excited and express gratitude to us musicians all the time. They are a polite and well behaved group of students focused on doing their part well. We are all grateful for that.

This is the song titled “Disaster” from the musical “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying”.

Here we are at the rehearsal run through, the night before opening night.

New Steel Parade Video: “One To The Two”

 Steel Drum, Bass, and Drums grooving on this tune.

“One To The Two” – 1/22/15

I made up the bass part by thinking of what I wanted to play at the jam before I got there. Without knowing what we would be jamming, I decided to just come up with a part that had a strong quarter note pulse. Keeping it low and fat is just what I like (normal).

I am grateful to be part of these videos. Click here to see some older videos: Steel Parade’s Steel Drum Life videos. Nu Pan Groove did a great job editing this one!

Phil on drum set and pan.

Max did all the mixing and editing.

This week we experimented with live video loops, multiple video tracking, and the Premier video editor.

We looped the drum set groove, and layered parts in real time over the groove.
Part of our simple groove approach.
We learned a lot.

If you like this video and would like to hear more, please follow this blog.

Also, like “Steel Parade” on Facebook if you have not done so already.

As always, feel free to share this video with your friends.
I believe the good stuff we share with our friends makes a difference in our lives :-)

Peace…
