Derrick Dorsey came by my office a few weeks ago and had jotted down lyrics to what would be his first song. After listening to him recite them, we put together a basic riff, recorded it on his cell phone, and at the first chance, played it for the rest of the band.
Tonight, we finally had time at the studio to make what is sure to be the final arrangement of the tune. Chris Carroll changed the groove significantly, breaks were added with the input of Tom Wheat, along with the sax fills, and Mark Harmon went to work with me to try and lock in the rhythm section.
It’s not quite ready for prime time, but if you come to one of the gigs this weekend and ask us to perform “Get ‘er Done”, I bet we would give in and do it live, in spite of the penalty for failure. This is sure to be a hit!
Actually, the name is “‘Til the Cows Come Home” I believe…
UPDATE: The Dockside Band is no more… But, for a fun and funky, dance and party band for your Upstate area event, be sure to check out the new HOT AS A PEPPER site!
