January 2008 News

This information is from Gary's January 16 email.

Last night we had a great meeting.  24 of us gathered at Boutwell Studios for a vigorous hour and a half with one of the partners, Jeff McKee, and Musical Director Mark Harrelson, who gave us many insights into creating demos, recording technology, and preparing to record.  The Q and A was outstanding!
