Through the efforts of engineers like Stuart Martin, Tom Lofgren, John Jennings, Tommy Lepson, and Bruce Moyer, the group has been able to release six cds. John Collins of Happy Medium Productions and his team have single handedly filmed every show and produced two DVDs and countless videos over the past decade, including the video for this project. Dick Bangham has created the artwork for most of our posters and all of our CDs, including this one.
All this to say that after ten years of life affirming performances the work of these incredible artists, designers, producers, and engineers will be showcased in a beautiful looking and sounding two disc set. To be included is the music of Nils Lofgren, Neil Young, The Band, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Allen Toussaint, Neil Finn & Crowded House, Nick Lowe, CSNY, The Beatles, Warren Zevon, The Byrds, Rod Stewart & The Faces, Chrissy Hynde & The Pretenders, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, George Harrison, and many more.
Performing on this work are the best musicians in Washington, including Nils Lofgren, Eddie From Ohio, Steuart Smith (The Eagles), Bob Margolin, Skunk Baxter (Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers), Jon Carroll and John Jennings (Mary Chapin Carpenter), Bill Danoff (Starland Vocal Band), Deanna Bogart, Scott Ambush (Spyro Gyra), Julia Nixon, The Legendary Orioles, and many many more. We need your help to make this retrospective a reality. These albums will be enjoyable listening experiences for years to come. Backers will be rewarded with special bonus tracks and rough mixes as the album comes together.
Risks and challenges
BandHouse Gigs is a not for profit production company but this double CD will cost money to make. Stuart Martin of Stonebridge Music Studios is currently mixing these 40 live tracks. Stuart engineered 4 of the 6 previous BandHouse CDs. He has also recorded for The Steel Wheels, Jimmy Gaudreau and Moondi Klein, Emmylou Harris, and Robbie Schaefer. Dick Bangham of Rip Bang Pictures will create the cover art. Dick is a nationally recognized graphic artist who has worked with Little Feat, WHFS, and Root Boy Slim. He also designed most of our fantastic concert posters. We must also pay copyright agencies so that artists and songwriters will get paid. Finally, we go to our friends at Oasis manufacturing for CD duplication. It’s a lot of money but the final product is going to be spectacular. We need your help to pay for this remarkable tribute to 19 sold out shows and we are certain you will love this retrospective CD.
