On Friday, March 27th at The Throne Room in Chicago we recreated the entire album The Legend of Core Dynamo with ALL of the original musicians on the recordings (save Karen Olsen's epic trumpet on the title track).
If I was humbled to have these fantastic people play on the album it was nothing compared to the ecstatic feeling of recreating these songs live.
Although this was a solo album it was all about collaboration. In that spirit each of the musicians from the album also played a set of their own at the show.
Listen to The Puffins contribution to my song "One" track 7 on the album. Out of frame is Alex Hall, vocalist for the Puffins who sang on my track and mixed the whole thing.
These guys are so good! They recorded and mixed most of the album and you can hear both of them sing on my song MY MG. Also listen to Nick's dynamic percussion throughout.
I've been playing music with Dan Powers for over 10 years. We formed The Overmen with our friend Chris Bentley and reunited to play our 2012 EP in our first performance in over a year! Listen to the EP here.
Thanks again to everyone who came to make this such a magical experience. Until next time.
Spreading the word on great local bands, local venues, good gear, album reviews and just anything inspiring.
