Band update.

The story so far...

Photo of a 4-track digital recording machine.You've just bought a new 4-track digital recording machine (BOSS BR2) also known as the 'digi 4-track' which you want to use to record some tracks on. The guys and gals from the band 'NiteBabe', have offered to be your 'guinea pigs' while you learn how to use the recording machine 'cos they'll end up with a recording that they can listen to and use to check out how their sound is developing.

The lyricist in the band hopes to get some inspiration from this jam session as the 4-track machine is a killer song writing tool for the band.

The band's rehearsal session is tomorrow and Eve has booked one of the rehearsal rooms at the Play Room for you and the band to use.
