Fast approaching is Stephonne’s showcase for Tommy Boy Records. This rehearsal is a test in memory, and our flow from one song to the next so that come performance time, we operate as a unit and have complete confidence in all our parts. Johnny Hamil joins us on bass and we are also excited to have secured our tenor sax and keys in NYC. Sending parts with enough time for proper rehearsing and being totally clear on expectations is so important with all shows, but especially for a showcase.

Today – Taking you through @lovesickwriter ‘s showbook for #pianosnyc performance on Oct. 28th. My aim for this one having been in a ton of rehearsals myself that accomplish little and take up a ton of time. You want those rehearsals well prepared and #musicians knowing that accomplishments and cohesiveness keeps building because mistakes and tricky parts are pointedly worked on. Keep it honest and respectful but most of all encouraging. Song is the instrumental version of “The Joke Of It All.” . . . . . #musicdirector #musicproducers #musicproductionlife #tutorials #notation #akgheadphones #desertvibes #congas #lppercussion #studiorat #rehearsals
