John,

Very nicely put together video and heartfelt song tribute to the fallen heroes from your town.

Nice mix and vocal too. You didn't mention what tracks you used but they sound good.

John,

This was/is a terrible tragedy for very brave firefighters.

Your music would be loved by them all.

We live in in Northern Calif. back in the sticks. Just a matter
of time before we are hit. Live and Dread every summer for about 6 months.

This is a great honor you have bestowed upon these folks and their families.

Thanks for your efforts and hard work, sharing with us all.

Hi John,

I agree with everything that's been said. This was a pleasure to listen to and to watch. It's a wonderful tribute and a very polished presentation.

All the best,
Noel

John,
A wonderful tribute for those 19 heroes. I hope each one of their family members hears your beautiful song and treasures it forever.
This is why we write, sing, record, and publish our music. To be able to do something special for people. To maybe make things a little bit better somehow. We should all take inspiration from your work.
Thanks so much for sharing.
Mike

Floyd Jane: Thanks for your comments. I sure appreciate it.

seeker: Thanks for listening. Yes, it makes you nervous to live in the dry west. We had two fires this year: one about 6 miles from our house and the Yarnell Hill fire about 35 miles away where the Granite Mountain Hotshots died.

Noel: I appreciate you listening. I always enjoy your songs.

boehm: Thanks. Some day I hope to be as inventive as you.

SpaceDog. Yes, I hope the families and other firefighters find something for them in the song.

John

Excellent tribute and song. Fire fighters and police are the 2 most under recognized jobs, but without both the world would be chaos. Thanks for sharing!

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
