For three nights I’m on tour with The Hellbound Hepcats doing a small run through southern Ontario. We are playing Barrie, Toronto, and Collingwood. A short run but its gonna be a great little time playin some fast and furious rockabilly!!
Here are the details as followed:
April 3rd: The Clarkson Pub, 30 Dunlop St E Barrie ON L4M 1A3. Click this link for full details: The Hellbound Hepcats at The Clarkson Pub
April 4th: The Dakota Tavern, 249 Ossington Ave, Toronto ON. The Dakota Tavern
April 5th: The Casbah, 18 Huron St Collingwood ON. The Casbah
All shows start around 10:00 PM so get down early!!! If we arent playin then we’ll be drinkin!!
The last couple days have been full with time in the studio recording the upcoming album by Dany Laj and The Looks.
I laid all my drum tracks yesterday so my jobs done! Time to sit back and enjoy the rest of the album process.
I used my vintage Stewart drums for that great old sound, my 1970’s Ludwig Supersensitive snare, and my awesome MCD 5.5X14 solid shell curly hickory in custom black/cherry burst with chrome beavertail lugs (big shout out to Nick and Mike at MCD Drums). For cymbals I used my 1950’s zildjians, 20″ Constantinople ride, and my awesome Dream cymbals(20″ crash ride and 16″ crash). The only instruments I need.
We are in a great studio in Toronto in the Bloor and Lansdowne area. So far the studio remains unnamed but I’m suggesting they call it Parachute Studios for the fact that as I write this, I’m sitting below an old military parachute in the control room.
The best part of this whole process? We get to lay it all down to tape!! Pretty much the best way to record drums.
I’ll keep everyone updated as I go and bring all the news as it happens as usual.
Thanks for reading!!
