Pedal Steel Al



Al Kabela was in playing some pedal steel tonight.  This instrument is something crazy. Think guitar meets manual transmission. Al is a great local talent that we try to utilize whenever possible.  Need some pedal steel?  Call Al!  Or us and we’llIMG_5138call Al.

Benjamin Wagner

Benjamin Wagner came to visit us from New York.  He’s currently on a “walk-a-bout” before his new career starts.  He’s from Iowa originally and is an interesting guy to follow.  He’s done some cool projects in both music and video. Jason Walsmith (The Nadas) and Brandon Stone (The Nadas) were there to round out the band with Jon Locker on bass. Ended up being a fun, low key day of making music.IMG_3540 IMG_3549 IMG_3562

Damon Dotson

Damon was in again today.  You can see it’s already starting to “pay off” ;)  He’s counting his dollars from his “other job”.  Kidding, kidding.  This record is coming along nicely.IMG_2482 IMG_2483


You’d think Tony was writing lyrics or important notes…nope…food order.IMG_2484 IMG_2485 IMG_2488

The Olympics

These guys are in from Iowa City.  They are here for 5 days or so.  Even sleeping in the studio!  They are really exploring the studio space.  These first days are mostly getting drum and bass parts.  Then the overdub process will begin.

Mr. Maxwell Jury

Max Jury
Logan and Scott are in recording Max Jury for a few days.  This young, up and coming songwriter has some exciting things happening in his career.  What’s super fun is he did his first demo, a long time ago, with Tony when we first opened.  IMG_2800 IMG_2797 IMG_2795 IMG_2792
