Ooh La La

Billerica, MA USA

A recording from the Sampas Pavilion in Lowell Massachusetts in 2008, Me, my guitar and my band-in-the-can:


The backing track is from the Sing For Your Stew recording with Brian Templeton on harmonica but with a more real-world vocal and overly excited midi claps. If you are wondering why the drums are so boring, it's because they are my feable attempts and probably accounts for my almost comical clap track. One of the better tunes in the 2-chord genre though.

And we're directing all persons contemplating marriage to BigCityWeddingBand.com for wedding music in the Boston area. Laundry in the Newburyport, MA area goes to the best drummer in the laundry business: Port City Laundry

I'm pretty sure Frank will NOT do both drumming and laundry at the same time though he may take the challenge if posed:)
