As a band, we love getting to entertain people at private events and special celebrations like Weddings and Birthday parties. We have so much fun playing this classic music from the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s and 1950s with our own twist. But we want to entertain people in their cars, their living rooms, or in their ears on-the-go too! We get requests all the time of where people can hear us. Well, this will give us a way to connect with our fans all over the world in a new way!
We recently recorded background tracks for The Honey Taps, a fantastic group of dancers that provide live vintage dance entertainment. We really hit it off with the studio we recorded at in Long Beach (BIG EGO Studios) and the studio’s owner/producer Chris Schlarb.
He also had a great time recording us and we got to talkin’ and well, ya know, we thought it would be swell to make a record together.
Turns out, our Trumpet player, Gabe, happens to be a terrific arranger. Before long, we had a songlist and concept for both a Christmas EP (baby album) and a vintage/big band full-length album. This project will feature the Showmance Band (1 Trumpet, 2 Trombones, 2 Reeds, Violin, Upright Bass, Guitar, Drums, and Piano. JB (Josh Bednarsky) and Brianne Sanborn will provide the vocals. In addition to the charts, each musician will contribute unique ideas during swathes of improvised solo sections.
We are so excited about the songlist we have compiled that features tunes from Old Hollywood, the Golden Age of Broadway, and some silly stuff sprinkled in.
The great thing about this album is that it will be recorded LIVE, all at once. In true form to the era, we will use no multi-tracking. So what you hear in the final mix is exactly what was played in the room during the session, including vocals.
We are also grateful that in the spirit of the Christmas & Holiday season, we will be donating a portion of each item sold at this store to St. Jude’s Research Hospital (where no patient ever receives a bill).
We hope this album is classy, wild, and romantic. The funds raised here will cover studio rental, engineering, producing, arrangements and licensing costs and more.
