Thanks

Very nice Joanne. I'm working on a few traditional Christmas tunes as well. Hopefully I'll have them done soon.

Thanks Samuel. Yes Christmas public domain songs are so nice to cover. It becomes a bit of a challenge to try and achieve a different spin on them because they have been done so many times before!

Recorded to PC on December 4th, 1999 with the band I was in, almost 18 years to the day.

I was the keys player and did the piano and jingle bells sound effect.

I had just been going though some "Blues for Piano" books shortly before this recording and had just learned the blues riffs in C Major.

So we as a band winged it and recorded this in very few takes.

I submitted my own take of an apparently local-exclusive carol, named it Cracking Carol (it's on my Youtube channel as well), if you can find it.

BobH and I took a song that we did in 2009 and remixed it. I forgot what BiaB style we used and I have lost the lyrics. I do know that we kept the drums from that style but deleted everything else.

BobH is playing the 12 string and singing and I am playing everything else.

We hope you like it for what it is.

Ps - I know that I haven't been listening or posting much lately. Life has gotten in the way of my music.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
