SONGER STUDIO
MEETING NIGHT RANGER
BACK IN AUGUST OF 2017, A PARENT OF ONE OF MY STUDENTS TOLD ME THAT SHE KNEW THE KEYBOARDIST FOR NIGHT RANGER, ERIC LEVY AND WONDERED IF I’D BE INTERESTED IN HAVING HIM COME OUT TO SPEAK TO OUR BANDS WHEN THEY WERE IN MINNESOTA IN DECEMBER TO DO A CONCERT.  IT TURNED OUT THAT THE SCHEDULE WAS JUST TOO CRAZY TO MAKE IT WORK THOUGH.

IT WAS UNFORTUNATE BECAUSE EARLIER IN THE SUMMER I HAD DECIDED TO DO A NIGHT RANGER SONG, “ROCK IN AMERICA”, AS PART OF OUR WINTER CONCERT. 

FAST FORWARD TO THE FIRST WEEK OF DECEMBER.  THAT SAME PARENT CONTACTED TO ME TO SEE IF I’D LIKE TICKETS TO THE CONCERT AND AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO BACKSTAGE TO VISIT WITH THE BAND.

HOW AMAZING! 

OF COURSE I AGREED TO GO.  THE CONVERSATION WAS AWESOME.  WE TALKED ABOUT THE ARRANGEMENT I HAD DONE.  JACK BLADES, LEAD VOCALIST AND BASS PLAYER, ASKED ME WHAT KEY IT WAS IN.  I TOLD THEM THAT IT WAS IN THE ORIGINAL, B MINOR.  THEY SAID THAT THEY WEREN’T DOING IT A LITTLE LOWER (A FLAT) AT THE SHOW.  IT WAS FUN GEEKING OUT WITH THEM ABOUT THEIR MUSIC.

AS WE TOOK OUR SEATS, ERIC LEVY TEXTED US AND ASKED IF THEY COULD GET A RECORDING AND COPY OF THE ARRANGEMENT THAT WE WILL BE PERFORMING ON DECEMBER 19.  PRETTY COOL!

IN ADDITION TO NIGHT RANGER, LOVERBOY WAS ALSO ON THE BILL.  BOTH BANDS SOUNDED GREAT.
