Loc: The Netherlands
On the verge of 2016 we are posting our last song of this year ;-)
It's a collaboration with South African singer-songwriter Paddy Gobel. We had a BIAB funky instrumental project lying around which wasn't going anywhere vocalwise, so we decided to send it to Paddy. He came up with an entirely different singing melody than we initially had in mind. The same goes for the song's theme... his granddaughter. Anne-Marie created the video.
Hope you like it. Best wishes!
Rob & Anne-Marie

Wow - we've been receiving some great feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!
"I've had Band-in-a-Box for past 5 years. One of the best musical investments I've made. Has been great for writing songs, practice and jamming. I use mostly the real tracks and very little of midi."
"This program has gotten better every year for the past thirty years and I couldn't live without it now!"
"I've been using it since 1991 which was a primitive DOS version for midi development through midi keyboards. It has kept me upgrading ever since and 2023 is amazing. I'm always learning and always amazed."
"I just picked up the 2023 BIAB Pro, and have started educating myself on its intricacies and upgrades from previous versions. WOW!! What a writing toolbox! I am just so impressed so far."
"Love the new features in 2023! Started using Band in a Box way back in the early nineties. This program has been to the moon and back since then. Thanks!"
"This box contains the best bandmates! They are always ready to chat with you!"
"One of my best tools for composing arranging and playing!"
"Have you met my Band? they are here on BIAB.... always on time for gigs lol!"
"Awesome program that you'll never regret!"
"This is the best for whipping up a quick jam track!"
