Hello Bluzgtr. You have set the bar very high and reached above it.
This fits the genre and era very well.
Congrats to you and the vocalist. Rob

bluzgtr,

Welcome to the Showcase.

Nicely done. Good mix. Really like the punch in that walking bass.

Dave has a great voice for the style.

Enjoyed.

Hello, Bluzgtr

An attempt to write in the style of "The Rat Pack," Sammy Davis, Jr., Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Joey Bishop.
Yes, it was done very well and successfully.
This tune reminds me of "Engel Eyes" of Sinatra.
As floyd said, Dave has a great voice for the style.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

We listen to a zillion genres and this is one that is rarely heard on the forum. You gotta have a great vocalist and production chops to take on a project like this and you pulled it off...very well!

We enjoyed it.

What a nice compliment. I've never heard that phrase before, and I like it.

About a half-century ago, I was living in Los Angeles. I met two men from the Australian television industry. They used to sail up to L.A every 6 months to buy programming. They had a keg of Australian beer mounted in the galley. That was when I learned that American beer was a wimpy, pallid product.

Somewhere in my archives is one I wrote called "Funky Chicken." Yours is better.

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser!

From there, simply type in your query, or choose from the long list that appears in the Feature Browser window. If you're typing it in, you'll see that list change to only show the results that could fit your search - once you find what you're looking for, you can read more about it when you choose [Manual], if there's a video for the feature you can choose [Video] to view it, OR - if you don't need to read about the feature and just want to USE it, choose [Do it] and you're all set!

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video:
