Recording Opportunity – December 10th

By admin

Randy’s Recording and MSG are pleased to offer a recording seminar for the performing songwriter on Saturday, December 10th. Sign up to record a basic demo (guitar/piano and voice) at Randy Green’s award-winning local studio and learn about the recording process as you go. At the end the group will evaluate the demos and each songwriter will go home with his or her recording, plus a compilation of the other demos done that day.

The cost is a very affordable $39 in advance, with a $10 discount available for Madison Songwriters Guild members. You can even become an MSG member at the recording session. Contact Rich Baumann at richbaumann@charter.net or drop by any MSG event to pay in advance.

Randy’s Recording and Production is located at:
4770 Gaston Cir., Rt 2
Cottage Grove, WI, 53527
(608) 839-4154

Songsmith Dave Schindele hosts this special edition Songwriter Night on Thursday, November 10th at 6 pm at 132 East Wilson Street. This is our monthly Water House Foods gig transplanted from Lake Mills for the month of November while they expand to bring the area more live music and delicious food. MSG will head back to Lake Mills in the new year.

John Jacobs and Barry Wayne Callen will share their time and talents on this special songwriter night. Expect some great music and some special guests, and in the meantime, check out Barry’s new CD on CD Baby!

It’s all happening at the Madison Mark Apartments at 132 East Wilson Street. There’s plenty of street parking, so pop into the lobby, punch in 1200 on the keypad and head on up. If you’re a songwriter and would like to share a song or two, bring your instrument and we’ll see you there.
