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!

Nice mix, I would like to hear a melody line playing. But good soothing beat; thanks for sharing!

@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.

Wowser! 144 plays yesterday! You wonderful friends are absolutely awesome!

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

I liked the fade in, very effective.

this tune was a sweet ride, and images of lyrics danced in the shadows as I listened.

much enjoyed!

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

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!"

continued...

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."
