It all works - love the sound. Gets my attention at the first drum beat. Nails the genre.

I especially liked the Gospel Background Vocals. smile

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

Sounds great! You had me from the git-go!

Excellent guitar lead!

Two thumbs up


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Thanks David, I love Brent's Bari guitar sound...
I played my ol' DanElectro Baritone Guitar, tuned down to an open "C", (on top of Brent's Track) plugged into my '59 Tweed Vibrolux...

I was nervous queuing this one up for fear of what it might be, but I’m glad I did.

“Don’t come around here if you’ve lost your sense of taste“ is hilarious.

Never Fear what you don't hear... as for what you do hear, here, your nervousness might be well founded...
Ha, that was my favorite line too...

Love it! Great take on the scam-demic, plan-demic, bio-weapon, yep.... we've lost our collective minds.

On the song. Yep.... gritty rocker in the finest tradition of gritty rock. Well written and put together.

Glad I tuned in for this.

BTW: I don't cover my face, cough into my elbow, social distance, nor have I been jabbed...... rock on!

bloc-head,

Wow, that was awesome! Love the flow of this tune! You are creating some of the best stuff being posted here! Love the chord shift of the chorus....extremely effective! Super use of the background vox! Great solo choices and your lead vocal is perfect! You remind me of the late Ronnie Van Zant...you sound a lot like him , which really gives this tune a Skynyrd edge to it! Thanks, Torrey

I didn't know Ronnie, but I did meet his little brother, Johnny, through a mutual friend & bandmate. My friend Robbie Gay was a founding member of "VanZant"... thanks for listening and commenting... You are a treasure here on this forum.

Good stuff. I liked every bit of it.


My wife asked if I had seen the dog bowl. I told her I didn't even know he could.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
