Super song. Excellent choice in instrumentation.

You have captured that swing band sound with perfection.

Loved that bass!

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.

Good backing band, catchy tune and a strong lyric. Unlike some of your other recordings (I'll Sleep When I'm Dead and Penny in my Pocket) the vocals in this one sounds like you're way over on stage left and you're singing through a triple-layer surgical mask. Otherwise, great job.


My music may not set the world on fire but if it causes a glow in just one person's heart, it has all been worthwhile smile

Good tune, expressively sung. As Ghostgum said, catchy tune with a strong lyric.

As Ghostgum noted, the lead vocal is more on the left side, with the harmony line on the right. With the stereo separation, the harmony voice is a pretty prominent, and is singing a lot of "jazzy" intervals. I think it detracts a bit from the vocal.

But I also agree with Mario - two thumbs up! laugh

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

A good song, Elliott. Love that bass. This is so good all around. The perfect band for sure. Excellent lyrics and changes. To me the snare seems a bit too strong.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanks for listening and your comments. I cleaned up the vocals and remixed it and reposted it based on your feedback. I am looking for a singer who can do a Michael Buble' kind of vocal for this song ... my voice is not right for this tune.

Yeah, you cats are swingin' tight on this... a really cool tune, and clever lyrics. Other than just a few minor pitchy spots, (that could be tuned up easily), I think your voice is perfect for this... you have a rare, distinctive vocal quality, that stands out, and sets you apart.

What a cool sound Elliott! Love the vocals, they are excellent! That backtrack is as smooth as silk! The bass/drums combo are tight and really carry this along! Thanks, Torrey

Love it right from the title, Elliott. Sand Dancing is such fun and so is this song. Cool percussion. Excellent lyrics and vocal, as usual. Not sure about the vocal delay in the quieter sections. Cool bridge with strong swells. I like the way the whole song almost features the cool walking bass. Excellent choice on instrumentation and such a good mix.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hi Elliott,

Good song, well sung and great band. I didn't hear original vocals but these vocals are the right level and right reverb.

Best Regards
Nigel

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!

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."
