So the band is really coming together @ the Cafe Jazz, Cardiff. The book is filled with enough arrangements for us play more than a couple tidy sets of music. Hey guys! Let’s go get some gigs.
But … we need a website, some photos, some copy and a demo recording.
With that I invited o local legend, long time jazz stalwart and all around great human being Derek Lewis to come snap some photos of us at the gig. A few shots of us playing live, and some poses during the set break should be enough to make a start on a website to promote the band.
I wrote some copy to describe the band ….
donnie joe’s American Swing
Swinging Jazz, Infectious Rhythms, Witty Tunes, and Poignant Songs …
donnie joe’s American Swing brings them all together for the best in
Swing Jazz from the 1930s, 40s, & 50s.
Not too bad, if I do say so myself.
But those photos. …
Photoshop is good, but it’s not that good. I mean, I know we're not super-models, but no amount of soft focus and sepia tone could … Well, you know what I mean.
Anyways, in a few weeks time donniejoemusic.com was born along with our social media outlets @donniejoemusic & facebook/donniejoesweeney .
