Here are a few tunes that I recorded with some life long friends of mine. The band, “Burning Daylight,” is Rich Charron, Bill Siopes, George Panousis and myself. Most of the songs were recorded and mixed at Drake Lane Studios (e.g. my house) except for a number of Rich’s tracks which were recorded remotely at his place in Florida. “Black Magic Woman” was recorded eons ago in the basement of one of Bill’s friend’s house.

When Rich sent me a couple of tracks of him singing this classic Pink Floyd song, I thought, “no way can we do this.” A dozen or so tracks later, we did. Rich did all the vocals and played the acoustic guitar. I played the electric guitar, bass, guitar, drums, and keyboards.
An original tune by Rich and myself. I came up with the main guitar part and Rich added a tasty guitar noodle. We worked on the lyrics together on my deck one afternoon, and then Rich sang it.

Here’s a link to a video of another band I was in called RUN EMC. It was a band of colleagues of mine when I worked at EMC corp. It was truly a privilege to play with these talented individuals. They are introduced while we play a rendition of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Pride and Joy from a show we performed at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas NV.
