Time for a Driveway Concert!
(please note this is an archived concert from FB but I definitely wanted to share here in case you didn't see it!)
As I was walking the dogs a few days ago I realized my driveway is very wide and would make a great place for an outdoor session. Plenty of room to be very far apart and still play together! I have played a few times for our neighborhood solo as well as a social distancing parade and they are excited for the prospect of a concert!
We’d love for you to tune in live and hang with us for a few minutes! We’ll even have some special surprises lined up for intermission and other times!
We will have a virtual tip jar available as my friends that are playing have been without any means of income since Covid started. Any donations will be graciously accepted.
Jackie Myers: Piano
Jason Emmond: Bass
Jim Lower: Percussion
Okay it might not be Carnegie Hall but a stage is a stage A few performance notes:
it was the first time running sound this elaborate outside and into an interface so the mix isn't totally spot on but we'll get it next time! The way I captured sound into an interface for a live concert mix is worth a mini-lesson in itself!
I'm using my Gen II Adams A1 trumpet with TAZ-CS mouthpiece as well as my Olds Clark Terry Model Flugelhorn with Clark's old mouthpiece (and my Ta-1 rim)
My trusty shop assistant and pal Kyle Lambert sat in a few times on the show (yes his mic wasn't turned on totally)
Our goofy intermission songs with my wife are part of a series we have been doing for friends on my personal FB page entitled Quarantine with the Austins! I hope you enjoy it!
Stay tuned for another one of these in the future it was very fun!
The tip jar is still active (and the tips go to my band who have been out of work... just put in the comments tip jar or Driveway)
