Super groove

Great vocal and harmonies

The band is perfect for this song

Hi Nigel,
I like your song.
It reminds me the Rolling Stones with a wiser sound.
And I find this very pleasant !

Nigel, you are such a fun entertainer. Love the title and figured it would sound a lot like New Orleans. Classical might be the only musical genre not often performed in NOLA. Love that place and love this song. You pack the song with the perfect band, easy lyrics and melody to sing along with, and then drop in that versatile voice you have to produce the magic that is another Nigel Spiers song with engaging results.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Nigel,

I like this Bayou kick you are on lately! You do these so well that you are probably inspiring a lot of listeners to have a go at this style! Your vocals are on fire in this! Everything sounds perfect to me! Absolutely love the mix! Nothing out of place caught my attention anywhere in the whole production!

Thanks, Torrey

Nigel,

You have such a nice voice that fits perfectly in these kind of song. By the way, the song itself is fantastic, but I like your songs a lot!
Never been to New Orleans, but this makes me long for that place...

Nice day,

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."
