The Hype! is pleased to announce that we’ve been invited to play on Tony Sarabia’s Morning Show on Wednesday, July 3rd The show airs from 8:50am-10:30, and can be streamed on http://wbez.org
You can also dial in, if you live in Chicago at 91.5FM
We’re part of their monthly programming of Mash-Ups, where we’ve been challenged to play the music of one song while singing the melody and lyrics of another. We’re keeping our selections under our hat, as usual. Tune in for the interview and the music.
If you missed it, the show will also be archived on WBEZ’s site. Link here:
Our wonderful bass player, Erik Rosengren has recently injured his wrist.
While he makes a speedy recovery, the talented Jim MacGregor will be playing in his stead.
Get well, soon, Erik!
As a bonus, here’s an outtake we did, also recorded and mixed by Mary Gaffney.
For those familiar with U.S. Maple, we never rehearsed this before we played it live. For those unfamiliar with U.S. Maple, we rehearsed this hundreds of times, and this is exactly how it’s supposed to sound.
as always, thank you!
Excuse the dust while we get our things in order, until then, feel free to visit our archive at the PRFBBQ site. It’s chock-full of videos and photos of our performances from 2009-2012, and was lovingly collected by Jim Birch and Matt Engstrom of Caffeinated Recordings.
