Bandly at The Sanitarium Music Nights Salon in San Luis Obispo

22 03 2012

Everyone at The Sanitarium Music Nights in San Luis Obispo, California, seemed to be enjoying the high energy performance of local band Bandly. They really rocked the house with their three song set. They are a newly formed band; I can’t wait to hear more! Here they are performing their original song, “Couldn’t Stay,” on March 21, 2012.

Bandly is Benly (guitars, vox and keys)
and Danly (drums, bass, keys and vox)

The Sanitarium Music Nights are organized by Vincent Bernardy of St. Vincent Folk. They are every first & third Wednesdays of each month at 7:00 p.m. at The Sanitarium Inn & Spa in San Luis Obispo, California. It’s a casual and fun gathering of local musicians, singers and singer-songwriters performing for an intimate audience of music lovers and fellow musicians.

Love in the Circus at The Hotel Cafe, Hollywood, California ~ 29 October 2011

Love in the Circus performing “Takes the Edge Off” at The Hotel Cafe at The Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, California on October 29, 2011

There is also a KICK-A SAX SOLO in this song!  That’s the GOOD NEWS. The BAD NEWS is Leanna Rachel’s gorgeous vocals did not come through very well in this video recording. I apologize for the vocal on this video to Leanna and everyone who watches this! I’m learning…I’m learning… I was literally right up front and center and the speaker was above me and shot right over my head. Watching & listening to this on my desktop computer, which has pretty good stereo speakers, it sounds fine, but on my phone and laptop Leanna’s voice is difficult to hear. Lower quality speakers (such as on a cell phone or laptop computer) barely pick up her voice, yet the rest of the instruments came through. This experience just reinforces what I already know: that I really need to start making separate audio tracks that I sync with my videos. Where I need to be standing to shoot my videos is usually a different location from where I need to record the music! Regardless, this video will give you a taste of what was an exciting live performance of an excellent song.
