Hi y'all,

Our new contribution:

NIGHT DRIVING

This is a co-write with Paddy Gobel who did the writing on the verses.
Rob wanted a BeeGees like backing vocal on this, not quite realizing I'm an alto.
He was kind of wondering if I could manage this......
I think I proved them wrong whistle
Co starring: the Electric, Funk James Finger RT.

Turn up the volume on this one, we could have cranked a little bit more volume on the general mix.

Style is BRITROK8.STY (Brit 60's Gritty R&R)
Guitar, Acoustic, 12 String SampleTank.tgs
Strings, Ensemble, Movie SampleTank.tgs
Strings, Ensemble, Chamber SampleTank.tgs

513:Bass, Electric, Funk James Finger Ev 100
2157:Piano, ElectricVintage, Rhythm FunkyGroove60sJohn Ev 100
2158 guitar electric rhythm funky groove
1722 electric soloist Texas blues rock
RealDrum: CDiscoLadies^1-a:GrvA, b:GrvB (realdrums for BIAB)

Lyrics:

Just put the grinding week behind me
I’m driving down this moon lit street
Left all the cares and... things that blind me
My heart is full and life is sweet
time to work my dancing ....feet oh yeah

Night driving, straight jiving
start movin' to the beat
soul's rising firmly now,
cause it's nothing that I never did before
it's nothing that we've never done be.....fore, allright

She's the rhythm to my body
When I’m cold she is my heat
And When we're dancin'.....movin' slowly
She's my heartbeat, she’s my aim
There's no one like her, she is my.... flame oh yeah

Night driving, straight jiving
start movin' to beat
soul's rising firmly now,
cause it's nothing that I never did before
it's nothing that we've never done before, allright

All rising, music jiving
keep moving to the beat
souls rising firmly now
cause it's nothing that we've never done before
nothing that we've never done before.

Hi R & A-M.

Super funky track. Love that bass line.

Chorus certainly had a BeeGees feel to it.

The guitar solo took me by surprise - I was rather expecting a synth solo, or maybe a sax, but the guitar certainly worked.

Cool video.

Rob and Anne-Marie, another great tune. You guys sure know how to deliver. The style works so well, and I agree about the Bee-Gee's influence. Thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Very catchy - great vocals and the Bee Gee sound comes through.
Really liked the guitar break reminiscent of Stevie Ray Vaughan when he played for Bowie (Let's Dance).
Nice video as usual. Superb production.

How could I not like a song with the word "jiving" in the chorus?

Nice and funky! laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Fantastic. (The standard is getting very high here).
Cheers.

Rob & Ann-Marie & Paddy,

A very cool sound to this. I was not aware there was an RD called CDiscoLadies... nice combination of instruments - nicely mixed.

The vocals are great!

Your videos are incredibly "pro looking"....

Hey Rob, Ann-Marie and Paddy!
Great beat! You guys did a great job on putting this song together. I enjoyed everything about it. It caught my attention at the very beginning and held me there throughout the song. I am a BeeGees fan and I am sure that if this song were heard by all their fans they would like it also. But that being said, it is your song and you should proud to have created it.

ooooooh yea - You got enough of the Bee Gee's vibe to know it's there but this still has all of the signature RnAM we've come to expect. Good production of the audio and video. Enjoyed my listen.

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...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
