    Hi all,
    I just wanted to share the latest live recording I've put together. I wrote Moonbeamin at some point last year and so we've spent some time touring with this song since then and I really like how it has come together. When you play the same song night after night, parts change, we get more comfortable with it as a band, and each member is able to put a little something special into it that reflects back on them.

    Particularly, our vibes player is really killing it on this tune. I wrote a pretty difficult head and since he's been playing bass drum in the Pittsburgh Steelers drumline for a few years now, he's gotten ready good at double strokes (which are very common in bass drum parts). He took the outline of the melody and made it his own with that.

    The song starts with a little ambient/reverse reverb guitar thing and goes into the vibraphone melody. Next is a short bridge where the bassist switches to synthesizers, which is closely followed by a rather gratuitous guitar solo Vibes plays the head again after that and we end on a 3rd inversion maj7 chord (where's the puke emoji?? lol)



    Hope you enjoy!

    Very nice performance from a talented group of young men! You all looked like you were having a good time together. To me, that says a lot. Music should be fun.

    Thanks Jax!

    Git - I've always thought musicians should look like they're enjoying themselves on stage. That's what the audience wants to see!
