Our second post of 2018 is:

It's getting away from you

I created the music about a year ago. It took me quite a while to come up with a vocal and lyric for this.
Check out Anne-Marie's voice oohs coming in at 1.35 and the Zane Carney realtrack coming in at 1.50!

It's a strange and sweet delight
I saw you craving for that fame
It's the loneliness that drives you
It's the hurt from deep within
But you burning all your bridges on your way

Oh you lied to me
Just when you ran to me
You thought I was a breeze just given me that look
As of now you're just one step from your goal

You'd call my name
You'd wonder where you'll be, you said
If it weren't for you, I won't get very far
But just be careful now, it's getting away from you

Never in it for the love
Never in it for how hard I fell for you
It was no more than one step on your way

Dear you lied to me
And why'd I let that be
You thought I was a breeze just given me that look
Yes you must have been one step from your goal

You'd call my name
You'd wonder where you'll be, you said
If it weren't for you, I won't get very far
And let me tell you now, it's getting away from you

You will call my name you will wonder where I'll be
You said, if it weren't for you I won't get very far
But let me tell you now, it's getting away from you

When you falter and when you finally fall
Just look up and see I won't be very far
Just remember well
I moving away from you

Very nice peacefully flowing tune, some 80's soft rock vibes, I like the passage just before the chorus. Good arrangement and mix, and vocals are great as always.

Rob, That lead guitar you played was a great addition to this well put together song. You should do that more often. Great vocals and a spot on mix. Super hook line. The rhythm of the words flows so well. Enjoyed it a lot, Tom

Rob & Anne-Marie,
There`s always a professional shine to your music and this is another fine production (cool to hear you play lead guitar!).
For me its your emotive vocal that`s takes this above the crowd - very well done.

This song feels so melancholic. This was a really lovely piece. This song has such a professional quality to it. I could definitely imagine it playing on the radio in the late 80s or the 90s. Really fantastic job here.

Wow - what a tune! Your vocal performance here is truly outstanding. I can't get over how professionally done this sounds. I wouldn't bat an eyelash hearing this on the radio, not one bit.

You did a truly great job here - thanks so much for sharing smile

New Video - Installing Band-in-a-Box® from the Flash Drive Tutorial

When you order directly from us, there's an option to have your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK installation files sent to you on a flash drive (instead of DVD).
(this option appears during the check-out process)

We've created this handy tutorial video to walk you through the installation process:

Check out EricBlackmonGuitar's latest video, QUIK LICKS #14 Guitar Riffs Solo Lesson EricBlackmonGuitar HQ, where he not only teached a great guitar riff, but he also repeats that lick over a Band-in-a-Box backing track... what a great way to show how Band-in-a-Box is ideal for backing tracks!

Thank you Eric!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 - Cleaned-up BB folder!

It's the first day of spring today, which means it's time to start spring cleaning!

We cleaned up the BB folder with our release of Band-in-a-Box® 2018. Over the years, this folder has been growing - there were up to 10,000 files in there! We've fixed this and put the files into various folders. This is done with a cleanup routine. The cleanup normally happens automatically during installation, but you can run it manually by selecting the main menu Help | Utilities | Run Cleanup routine.

The cleanup routine does the following:
-Moves Styles files (.STY/.STX) from C:\bb to C:\bb\Styles.
-Moves Soloists files (.ST2/.XT2) from C:\bb to C:\bb\Soloists.
-Moves various Demo folders to C:\Demos.
-Moves various songs and lessons folders to C:\bb\Songs and Lessons.
-Moves various files essential for running Band-in-a-Box to C:\bb\Data and C:\bb\Data\Lib.
-Moves various preferences files to C:\bb\Preferences.
-Moves tutorial demo songs, program manuals (.pdf), and the help file (.chm) to C:\bb\Documentation.

Oliver Gannon Interview - Appointed to the Order of Canada!

Oliver Gannon (Peter Gannon's brother), was appointed to the Order of Canada in recognition for "his achievements as a musician" on December 29, 2017!

Oliver recently sat for an interview with CBC's Hot Air host Margaret Gallagher - read a summary and listen to the interview at

'I don't know ... why they chose me. But I'm very glad and I'm not giving it back'
-Oliver Gannon

To be clear, and avoid any confusion, there are two brothers: Peter Gannon is the "Band-in-a-Box" PG Music guy, and Oliver Gannon is the jazz guitarist who just won the Order of Canada.
