If I only had a vid camera Andy.
The best I can do is make an audio recording this weekend as our band works every Thursday and every Saturday and then every other Friday we do a couple of gigs down the road from our main ballroom gig. I have two YouTube contributions of our band but could only do a photo slideshow with the recorded audio. I record with a Yamaha Pocketrak C24 Digital recorder and with a touch of EQ, the recordings sound pretty ok. Nothing like a studio recording but still decent enough so you can hear everything thats going on, including the vocals.
I will make sure we do one of our “beer drinkin” hard driving 4/4 shuffle songs and record it, so you can hear it in context with a live band.
Also, you could sit down behind your kit and give it a whirl. You might come up with something a bit different that sounds better and then you could pass that along to the rest of us.
In case you’re curious as to what a 61 year old fat man sounds like on Icy Hot, Tylenol and a 6 piece Yamaha Oak Custom drum kit, along with four other fat men older than himself, do a search on YouTube for “The Country Wranglers - Walking The Dog” and also “The Country Wranglers - What I’d Say”.
These tunes were recorded straight off the bandstand with no editing…what is heard on youtube is what our dance crowd heard while we played it.
The slideshow is made up of band member pics and you will note that not only are we a well rounded band musically, our waist lines match our music.
