I installed a new pickup in the banjo uke with a fully mounted jack. I had to drill through this most precious of instruments, and then I even had to counter sink the jack a little so it would fit through the banjo uke rim. The triple transducer pickup did seem to slightly mute the banjo acoustically, but we actually thought that it sounded a bit nicer with a little more mellowness. I took a short video after the surgery was a success to show off the new pickup 🙂
The (V)owls are excited to be having a show at First Magnitude Brewing (FM on FB) on July 29th 2017 7pm-10pm. You can sample some delicious frothy beverages while enjoying the soul soothing summertime sounds of the (V)owls, on what is sure to be a swampy Gainesville evening. We are excited to bring three sets of music to you and to fill your evening with goodness.
A very special thanks goes out to Dave Johnson for arranging it and Going Rogue with Jon Branch and Jay Rogue for having us on and doing the interview! You guys made all our momma’s cry (in a great, mom is proud of her kids on the radio kinda way)
Vowls spent all day today recording original music for an album at SkyLab studio in Gainesville FL. We had so much fun working with Gerry King and all the professionals there. Thanks so much for a great day and hopefully done fantastic recordings.
A big thanks to Wayne for hosting such an outrageously fun event and for having Vowls come headline his show. We had so much fun playing in front of the giant bonfire on that wonderful piece of land in the beautiful Florida spring!
Come check out Vowls holding down the live music at the next FYN Naked Bash 3/31/2017 and 4/1/2017 (Schedule TBA). If you are a member of the FYN Facebook group, we just posted a (naked) video up there of our original song “You Cant Hide” you might find entertaining.
