More shots from the studio. That's VanGloria*s own Luke Moellman on Rhodes and a quartet of tromboners courtesy of the UARTS School of Jazz. That Fender Rhodes is the hardest working member of The Jean Marie. Rainer gave it a run for its money though, getting those horns done. No joke.
Jean Marie Update: We are currently in the studio finishing up our most recent E.P.. We've got a four piece horn section coming in Tuesday and Rainer is currently figuring out how to make his guitar sound like a keyboard which, we've determined, is the quickest way to get keys on this album.
We are also in the process of hiring a new manager, booking agent, and publishing company, as well as designing a new website, building a tracking studio in our new house, and starting demos for the next E.P..
Goodtimes had by all last weekend at the UM Alumni showcase in Williamsburg Brooklyn's Lovin' Cup. Hadn't played a show with Ken Bogan in a second! Sound guy liked us along with the hundreds of others in attendance. Once again, the lighting wasn't spectacular. Anyone know tricks for photographing bands in low light settings?
After a wee hiatus (and some technical difficulties) we're back!!
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Mercury Lounge show. The lighting wasn't great but we got A picture. Look forward to Apollo Heights joining us in Philly sometime in the not-so-distant future.
Also, from another recent show, here is a video of us playing Rocky Top. Yee Haw.
