Island Memories is a light, happy Caribbean tune in the style of Jimmy Buffet. It reminds of warmer times in the sand and sun.

Please don't forget to rate me up if you appreciate my efforts!

Sweet little tune! I'm a big Buffett fan, and this definitely captures his vibe. The BIAB reeferettes sound good. Thanks for posting! Take care. Greg

Thanks for taking time to listen and especially for your encouraging comment, Greg.

It was a fun venture just exploring Caribbean sounds. It seems to have a cyber-acoustic warming affect on the listener.

I needed this today Don. We have been 15-20 degrees F below normal!

This took me back to our Caribbean cruise that we took a number of years ago!

But based on your genre description this is the most Caribbean sounding country/bluegrass song that I have ever heard. Ducking and running for cover grin

Old pal, you know the story, brat!

Looks like a crowd of entertainers are coming with Danny in March. I certainly hope you'll be among them, old friend.

So far it's Danny & Linda; Scotty & Brenda; Bridget; Summer; Sharron & Paul (aka Heading West); so it will definitely be a blast!

@Tom, thanks me wee bucko!

@J&B, it certainly worked here in Oklahoma. 70F and sunny. I'm heading out to the gazebo first time this year. I know it can't last but I'll enjoy it while I can. My aide has me bundled warmly.

Hi Don,

Although it's not cold here (yet?), we appreciate this very much, it's heart warming.

R&AM, Charlie, it really does seem to have a warming affect. It's been beautiful here in Oklahoma today.

Curse your Okie hide, Don! My daughter heard this and now she's trying to talk me into paying for her to take a Caribbean cruise! I guess that gives you some idea of how effectively you made your point musically, eh?

Luckily, I've been a parent long enough to be highly adept at saying "NO"

Seriously though... that was a very enjoyable tune, light hearted and it made me feel a little bit like dancing. (But I resisted the urge valiantly.)

I don't know how to bump you up in the ratings, but if I can figure it out, you can count on a boost from NC.

Pat, coming from you, that is encouraging indeed.

Re: Rating the tune...while on the tune, you'll see 5 empty stars. As you mouse-over them, they will turn red. Click on the star of choice and it will accept your rating.

Thanks for the bump.

ADDENDUMB: Clicking on the stars to the right of "Twitter" opens the Rate popup.

Hi Don,

This is a wonderful creation! How is it possible not to feel happy after listening to this upbeat and uplifting composition. You got me tapping my toes and smiling! Thanks for that.

All the best,
Noel

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker
