Photo Below: “I brought in my Gibraltar G-Class Pedal for the kick drum. While switching out the pedals, I put the rental pedal to the side and ended up hitting the drum with it. It created a higher pitch/resonant sound like an un-muffled marching drum which was perfect for a song called ‘Daniel's Super Toy Trading Shop’ which the composer wanted toy-like sounds. I ended up keeping both pedals in the setup. Anything to maximize sonic possibilities in a confined space!”

“This is a wonderful new musical by Lee Overtree and Hunter Bell with music and original lyrics by Eli Bolin and orchestrated by Matt Castle & Frank Galgano.

The band consists of Piano/Keyboard, Guitar, Bass, Drums/Percussion, Violin, and Cello. We are spread out all around the stage and communicating via Music Director video and Aviom Mixers. Drums are fully mic’d under the stage. It's a great experience to see the Musical Theater process for a new work.

Eli Bolin wrote some great songs orchestrated beautifully by Galgano/Castle with varying feels and styles. Rock, Soul, Rock Shuffles, Half-Time Shuffles, Funk, Bossa Nova, Pop Rock, Hip-Hop, Punk, Disco, Indie Pop, Pop Ballad, Gospel and quasi-Latin Pop. Some tunes are performed with background tracks and click tracks.”

"After a week or two of rehearsals there is usually a performance or two of the show for an invited audience. Sometimes these performances can be intense if there are important people in the room, or if certain sections of the show feel under prepared. This is why it’s so important to know the score and script very well."

"The unique part of Groundhog Day was that the drummer had to play on stage, in a groundhog costume, wearing a giant groundhog head. Since I could barely see out of the head, it was impossible to read a chart (and there wasn’t a music stand), so it had to be memorized."

"If you are passionate, driven, feel you have a calling, a burning desire to play, practice, perform, and record music that you can share with the world, then choosing to be a professional musician here will make you a fulfilled and happy person. You’ll meet the most amazing people on stage, in the rehearsal room and in the audience."
