Danny & I were in the studio yesterday---this is by far, the best recording we've recorded--hands down. It has the CBx mix of "POLKA-ROCK-BLUES/ZYDECO" on it.
A few things we've done differently this recording: We recorded it at Rock Garden Studios in Appleton, WI. (And not to mention, this is the first full CD that CBx recorded that we didn't record ourselves...which was nice for a change.) Not only did we not have to record it ourselves, we also did a little at a time, which has been good for us in a way that we could record things and then had time to let it sit and come back to it in the midst of playing LIVE shows. We had a great time in the studio recording, trying to make a recording with our LIVE feel to it.
We are also excited to have a few guests on this recording...Chris Wagoner from the Moon Gypsies added a few tracks on steel guitar (awesome job!), as well as "The Stumpffer" Kevin Hemb on the Stumpf fiddle, and Jeff Roblee on percussion.
We can't wait to share it with you!

Well, after starting over three times, the new recording is almost complete. Mixing dates are set for the middle of September, so it really is going to be done! We tracked 8 songs including:
That's Enuff.., Spider & the Fly, Won't You love me like that, HopScotch Polka, etc...
Meanwhile back at live shows, Kevin Junemann, the newest member of the band on Bass, has been tearing it up and has added a great foundation along side Jason VanRyzin. Speaking of Jason VanRyzin, he has been adding new cymbals, "tings and chings", every week. You must see his new heavy duty (won't be blown over in a tornado) Microphone Stand. It is worth the price of admission right there! And of course Michelle, is playing whatever "the song" calls for on her arsenal of Musical Weapons. Danny, myself, is happier than a .... well never mind about that, but I'm very happy with the way the band is moving forward, and I just got my Squeeze Box fixed! Hope to see ya at a show soon. Don't be afraid- it's just a PolkaRock song.
