Rock n’ Record
Last Monday, the Beginner Rock Band ventured to a cabin in the woods to record their three best songs for the 2017 Brentwood Rock Band CD.
The Beginner Rock Band made their way to Maple Bay to start recording their favorite songs with the recording guru himself, Zack. We performed our concert of “Fly Away” by Lenny Kravitz, “Harder to Breathe” by Maroon 5, and “Banquet” by Bloc Party.
First we had our drummer, Ryan C, Whittall ‘19, bassist Georgia G, Allard ‘20 and two guitarists in the recording room while a pianist was in the control room. There was also a singer doing “Scratch Vocals” to keep everyone in time. After a few takes, the two other guitarists entered the recording room to finish the base track. Once all the base tracks had been finalized, two vocalists at a time would enter the recording studio to finish the song.
The recording experience inside the renovated barn was definitely one to remember. We have been working towards the studio trips for months and our hard work paid off.
The Advanced and Composition Bands will finish their recordings later this week and the CDs will be ready in June. The Beginner Rock Band will perform next at the Concert for a Summer's Day, so don’t miss it!
