    Definitely. We had opened for him once before but this was the first time I had a chance to meet him. He's an eccentric guy but it's amazing to meet someone who's been around in the music business since 1963!! And any band he plays with is just outstanding. It was a great time.
     
  11. I like it.

    Nice stuff.

    Great lines too.

    Thanks, my rig was an Eden WT550 and 210XST. I ran direct for the tracking and then reamped (or reroomed) my track back through my amp.

    As far as festivals, we've submitted to a few and are waiting to hear back. You know of any in Florida we should check out?
     
  16. How did you "re-amp" your track?

    I recorded straight from my bass into ProTools through a tube compressor. Then after the tracks were finished, we sent the signal from the computer into the Eden's input just like I was laying down the tracks all over again. That let me dial in the sound I wanted. For the final mix, we blended the DI signal (low end/low mids) with the reamping (high mids/treble) to get a full spectrum of bass tone. It also let me run through a 70's SVT head on one track where I wanted a "swampy" kind of tone. It's good because you get to use digital techniques but still get YOUR tone.

    Very nice!! I like Jazz Butter the best. I hear AquariumRescueUnit influences. I've also opened for Col. Bruce a couple times. Hit me up if you all are interested in a festival in colorado.
     
  19. I just wanted to say that I now start my mornings with Jazz Butter;) it's just too sexy
     
  20. Damn, Jazz Butter is no longer available on the myspace player :( But I dig that fretless tone!
