Hi Dan,

Man, what a great song! One of my favorites from you I think. Such a great groove, and I love the sound of the baritone.

And of course Marty is right on the money as per usual!

Excellent, listened a couple of times.

Thanks so much for the invite, Dan. I always loved your sound and it was cool to be a part of it. I told my wife that I was doing a song with Elvis (from England wink ). Of course being a bass player I opted for the Las Vegas Elvis, but I'm glad you stuck with me, and gave me another chance. Man, what a fun song --for both bassists.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Dan and Marty,
First of all love the Elvis treatment on the vocal and vocal effects, totally works! This song is great! It's also great Dan to hear you kind of break out and venture into styles we don't normally hear you do! It was a proper choice to have Marty lay down that bass track! Nobody does a better job and it's always solid and just what is needed! This is a great showcase item for forum collaborations and I enjoyed it!

Thanks, TB

I really liked the Elvis sound, and the overall production.

Well played by Marty, and well sung.

Toe-tapping country! Grooving all the way through.

Strong Elvis vibe with the vocal, in a good way. Nice piano, too!

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

Janice said that she can attest that your song is also a great way to start the day. She first listened with a cup of coffee while watching the birds this morning. smile

This is a delightful collab with joyous performances and an uplifting lyric. Excellent vocals, as always, Dan, and we agree with others about the Elvis gospel vibe. We also enjoyed the chicken pickin’ and “happy” piano and Marty laid down the perfect bass for this old time gospel celebration.

Enjoyed it!

Dan,

That’s a real toe-tapper . . . Great write, terrific vocals, excellent production elements (including that slick bass playing by Mr. Marty). What’s not to like here . . . nuthin’. It’s all really good. Great work on this reproduction—never heard the original but find it hard to believe it could top this version. Excellent!

All my best to you,

Deej

Howdy Dan, just getting around to listening to this ... fantastic! Very fun! Good job choosing Marty to pick on this one, he's always spot on and provided a lot of drive to this sound. The guitars you chose also fit the style very well. I really liked your piano pickin' on this one and your vocals are always great. Good song all the way around.

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.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

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."
