I've always loved this song so I decided to create it with a Disco/House flavor speeding the tempo up and adding that feel to make it a great club song for dancing to and just having fun. The entire song was written in Band-in-a-Box!! You can also see some of my other Band-in-a-Box songs and Tutorials on my You Tube Channel and view my testimonial on the PG Music Web Site ...

Interesting rendition. Love the arrangement and how well the video matches the song tempo. I never would have thought of "walk On By" by Dionne Warwick as a disco or dance number but you made it sound like a natural fit.

I've got to admit though, I thought you were covering the 1961 country hit of +++ "Walk On By" +++ by Leroy Van Dyke. You would need a good bit of imagination to make that into a disco song.

Scary thought to think Disco might return but if anyone can get it started, it's you. Great arrangement, production and performance. Enjoyed this one a lot.

You certainly captured an absolutely classic disco feel to this. Refreshing, well produced, great mix.

Some pretty good dance moves in there also grin

There's a lot to like about this arrangement.

Excellent production and performance!

I have been working on this tune for sometime now and plan to have it on one of my upcoming shows in 22020.

Thanks for the inspiration Henry!

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."
