Here is an uptempo song of mine featuring Dan Lippert on harmonica. I used BIAB drums, bass, and organ on the song. I added National resonator guitar and National resonator mandolin and sang the vocal. I think the drums and bass sound fantastic.

You can stream the entire album here: https://fredgrittner.bandcamp.com/

On Sweet Marianne the entire track features Dixieland RealTracks and RealDrums.

Fun tune!! Like the concept. Arrangement comes across very natural, and Dan plays a mean harmonica. Nice job!! Take care. Greg

Instant smiles on this, great driving feel, great harp playing, playful vocal. Not many cylinders in this engine, but firing on all of them! Nicely done!

Thanks,
Bruce

PG Music News
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."
