Orleans to Record NEW Music!

Hey Gang!

Just a few items of interest, beginning with this:

Next week, Orleans will record the FIRST NEW STUDIO SONG since our Dancin’ in the Moonlight CD of 2005 … and the first thing since John Hall’s departure in late 2006.

We figured it was long enough! The legacy has been captured … the We’re Still Havin’ Fun CD/DVD live set is firmly established … and now it’s time to MOVE FORWARD!

Rather than wait for a 10-song collection to cut a full CD (now an “old-school” idea), we will cut great songs as we write them or, in this case, find them … and then release them digitally online.

This first GREAT song comes from our friends Kathie Baillie and Michael Bonagura (Baillie & the Boys) … the couple responsible for bringing me to Nashville in ’89. This is one of my favorite tunes of theirs. When I played it for Larry, he freaked! Everyone who hears it feels the same.

Better get out your hankies now, ’cause this is a real heartstring-puller! Not sure when it will be ready for release, but it shouldn’t be all that long. We’ll keep you posted!

Speaking of “new” …

The Pictures/Stories/YouTubes from the Holland Trip Are Up!

Well, it’s taken a lot longer than I thought it would to complete this look into Orleans‘ trip to the The Netherlands! Good thing I enjoy the process. 🙂

There are FOUR webpages of picture/story, complete with a lot of candid shots of the guys and some cool YouTube bootleg posts I found of the club performances  … and TWO surprise interview segments.

Good with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine!
