It’s the Tuesday of CD Release Party Week and it’s an exciting time in Poochamungas HQ.  I wanted to take this day to remember those that have helped the Poochamungas musically on the journey.  I’d like to start with Shawn Clarke who was the original lead singer. He has recently joined the ranks of fatherhood. Congratulations!  Thanks for helping get the Poochamungas party started.  Karen Kestin who was sang with us awhile before she moved away and became a mom.  Jerry Paulson who played slide and banjo on the first CD and was an original member and transcribed many of the tunes into read-ability for the rest of the band. Andy Shoemaker who recorded the first CD and a few other songs along the way.  Frank Rose for his brilliant saxophone work on the first CD as well as this one and his general knowledge of sound for live gigs.  I think his playing on Refrigerator Box is brilliant.  Nancy Rose for her wonderful vocals and amazing artwork.  She’s great on Valentines Day.  To John Abbey for making us sound so doggone good whether recording or playing on a track.  Don for being the reliable Cool Cat he is in a band full of dogs and holding up the bottom. The Izzo Family for providing not one drummer but two.  Original Pooch Joe Izzo and now regular Drummer, Joe’s dad Frank. Thanks for keeping the beat.   Alton Smith who so brilliantly produced the new CD.  He hears the things in the studio that make the songs whole.  Pete Cunningham for helping me start this whole mess to begin with.  Your guitar playing has been essential to the sound we call Poochamungas.  The CD release Party is this Sunday, September 29th at 2pm.  Schubas is hosting and Koo Koo Kanga Roo gets the party started at 2pm!  Stop on by…
