Skye's the Limit

On June 24th, local Jazz guitar player, Eric Skye, invited the ARL Pro Sound Recording services to come out and capture his trio playing at The Old Church in downtown.  The ARL team came in and recorded his band in a digital, multi-track environment.

The result on this video is 100% authentic.  No re-takes, no studio "behind the curtain" tricks, no gimmicks.  Just a great sounding mix in a room with amazing acoustics from an top-performer here in Portland.  It's a bit long (10 minutes), but definitely worth every single note, with an amazing drum solo.  Listen to the quality of the musicians, their instruments, and the feeling that you're actually sitting in the room hearing these extremely talented gentlemen perform.

To see the HD video of "Chitlins Con Carne," visit http://youtu.be/uQjYDNHvB4g

If It Weren't For the Last Minute

Wow - ARL has had an amazing wedding season helping out our lovely brides with their special days.  What's amazing to me is the number of couples who call last minute to schedule our DJ or Band services at the last minute because their "DJ bailed on them."

I have a theory, and I could be wrong, but DJ's are probably the biggest wildcard for any event (and even more so for a wedding).  Many of these so-called-professionals, are generally a one-man show, and they DJ an event or two all summer.  If they get a better paying "gig" they dump the smaller wedding in favor of the better paying one.

ARL has never (did I say never?) cancelled on our customers for any reason.  Even when Matt, one of our DJ's, had his wife in the E.R., we picked right up with another team member and never missed a beat... no pun intended!  We have a full live band, plus 3 professional audio professional cast members (all of which are working different weddings on 9/10/11 - big surprise), plus a 4th backup, with new, professional-grade audio equipment.  We pay a monthly license fee for our music (so we can play it legally), and we have the track record that many entertainment companies will never attain!

We look forward to seeing you at your next special event!

“Country Girl” Soundtrack is coming along – get your pre-orders in by Sunday, July 10th

The ARL Band has been in the studio for the past couple of weeks recording some original music for an upcoming indie film being shot here in Portland in July.  The film is a “coming of age” story about a young female singer, whose character’s songs appear throughout the movie.  Dave & Jozi are working closely with this award-winning director, Devon Gidley, to provide seven original songs for the lead role to perform throughout the film.  The tracks that we’ve laid down have come out very nicely, and we look forward to polishing them up for the finished project.

In addition to the songs appearing in the film, ARL would also like to produce a “motion picture soundtrack” to accompany the release of the film.  In order to do this, we are looking to raise some capital to cover our production costs using “kickstarter.”  If you aren’t familiar with kickstarter, it is a fun, no-risk way to pre-purchase copies of the soundtrack, DVD of the movie, T-Shirts, signed SWAG, and the like.  If you pledge a certain amount by Sunday, July 10th at 11:59pm AND we hit our goal, your credit card will be charged, and you will get the above mentioned SWAG.  Conversely, if we don’t meet our goal, no one gets charged a dime, and we may not move forward with creating the “soundtrack” portion of the project outside of what appears in the film (we have additional songs that we would like to include that may not appear in the film).

As of this morning, we are at $418 in pledges (15% there!) with 13 backers.  July 10th at 11:59pm is only 17 days away, and we would be ever so grateful if you joined us in this exciting venture!  How often do you get to make a movie soundtrack?  How fun is that?

Love to have you join us.

See the video, hear a couple “scratch tracks” for the movie, and get more information here:  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/697607133/music-for-indie-musical-film-country-girl

All Requests Live Band honored to be a part of Joe & Kim’s big day

The ARL Band had an opportunity to offer our musicianship, lighting and DJ services to Joe & Kim at their wedding on Saturday night.  With standard northwest rain throughout the morning, things were a little touch-and-go for an inside vs. outside ceremony.  However, God showed up and the skies parted for the couple to share their vows in a beautiful garden ceremony.
Kim had requested a very specific song for their first dance, “The Way You Look Tonight” – a duet by Elton John and Shania Twain.  A song that wasn’t available anywhere else but a mediocre version on YouTube.  So, the ARL band got together and Dave and Jozi stepped in for a nice rendition for their first dance. 
What brought further tears to the eyes of the crowd, was when the mothers joined the happy couple on the dance floor for their first dances with their children.  A very touching moment, indeed.
The wedding-goers were no stranger to both writing and texting in their song requests!  Both DJ Matt on the sound board and Dave on stage were both feverishly looking through the very extensive list of requests that were pouring in from the friends and family.  We were able to get a bunch in, but still left a lot we could have played.  Note: Get those requests in early!
Joe certainly helped out with the entertainment, as he both sang a Jim Brickman song to serenade his new bride, and finished the night up nicely with a completely impromptu version of “Sweet Home Alabama!”
Joe and Kim, it was our pleasure to be a part of your happy day!
