Moondog Show reminder - November 4, 2014

More than likely the last Moondog performance will be November 29th at the Bel-Air bowl in Belleville, IL. 8pm-11pm, $20.00 at the door. The Moondog Show is reconstruction of the roots of Rock n Roll. The Moondogs feature the talents of Tom Calhoun, the voice of the St. Louis Blues, who will portray DJ Alan Freed. Also performing are Rich and Jim Lang (The Guild), John Goodwin (Walter Scott and The Guise), Gary McClain (The Guild), Joe Truttman (Full Moon Consort) and Virginia Williams (lead singer, USAF Band, for 15yrs. There will also be a "Twist" contest and a "Hula Hoop" contest. Unlike the first show at Lindenwood University, there will be tables for eight, and a cash bar serving your favorite beverages. It all sounds like a great night of fun, and dancing. I hope to see you there.

SCORE Records releases Greg Guidry "The Demo Years" - October 13, 2014

SCORE Records has just released a new album of Greg Guidry demos from 1975-1982. These songs were recorded, engineered, arranged, and produced by Rich Lang. Rich played the drums, bass, and all guitars as well. Four of the songs were sung by his sister Sandy. All background vocals were by sisters Sandy, Kathy, and Greg. Greg was one of my dearest friends and co-harts. He departed us way too soon in 2003 after having much success, especially in 1982 with his top 10 hit "Goin' Down". He was a fantastic writer, and I hope you all get much pleasure listening to some of his earliest work.

All of these songs will soon be available on iTunes, and all other online music stores.

Jason Garmes New CD - January 7, 2014

Jason Garmes is a St. Louis-based musician whose original songs are a dynamic mixture of rock, blues, country/bluegrass, alternative, pop, reggae, funk, jam, r&b/soul, and even a little hip-hop, will be coming to Lang's Studio to record his new CD.  Jason has a wide ranging vocal style, and has spent more than a decade “paying his dues” in a positive and productive way. Chances are if you live in the St. Louis area you have seen him playing somewhere. One of his goals has always been to stand out and be unique.

        Jason’s ultimate goal is to make an album that is a culmination of his experiences, styles, and influences; one that stands the test of time and announces a fresh breed of singer/writer/performer whose music is far-reaching. Stay tuned for updates, session times, and a release date.
