Jam with The Moment

I put an ad into craigslist saying that I was a keyboardist looking for a group to jam with. It was hardly a day before three people emailed me looking for a keyboardist. One of these people was Nolan McFadden and a group he calls “The Moment”. I recieved the email on Tuesday afternoon and went and jammed with them on Tuesday night. They are all extremely good musicians, and it took me about an hour to “get into it”. After that, though, it was one of the most fun times of my life. It was just non-stop music. We didn’t say “hey let’s do this song”, we just kinda found ourselves doing one song, and then by the end, we were doing another song. It was great music; I would pay a few bucks to see a concert. Alas, it was not recorded.

We had another jam today. The drummer and one of the lead guitars were missing, and the bassist did not have his bass. So it ended up being an acoustic jam. We did record this one. The recording quality was less than optimal: I was the only one powered, and also I was facing toward the mic while the other two had their backs to it. So what you’ll hear here is my piano playing backed up by some quiet percussion called acoustic guitars, and maybe you’ll get a quiet glimse of Nolan’s great voice and songwriting. It’s too bad, their guitar technique was awesome, and the recording hardly picked any of it up. We did two of Nolan’s originals, and we also started to write a song (no. 2). I do not know any of the names, so numbers will have to suffice.
