ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The band has many unique rock & roll arrangements which pass melody & counter melody lines between sections. We typically perform with 40-50, but for some events, like the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee, we can field 70 or more. While we are well known for our live perfomances at events all over the SF Bay Area & Sacramento, we hope you'll also enjoy what we've captured in the studio.

Over 60 musicians contributed to this, our first album, usually 40 or so performing at any one time. Songs were recorded over 2 days in a very large studio at The Annex in Menlo Park. Each Section was miked and tracked separately, with drum section sub-mixed into stereo. 16 tracks-hopefully you can hear them all. Additional overdub tracks for Solos were added later. Russell Bond was our Recording Engineer and also did Mixing and Mastering. One track comes from our vault, from a session we did at the Annex back in 1988 (also Russell Bond).

The band was formed in 1982 while students & band members (Aggies) at the University of California at Davis. They accepted a gig, deemed inappropriate by University officials and were warned "There Will Be Repercussions" which is where the Album's title and the Band's name came from. To steer clear of confusion and break free from our Blue & Gold roots, Red, Black & White have remained our colors over the years.

As of 2010, the band has performed continuously for 28 years & has since recruited many graduates from UC Berkeley, Stanford, Cal Poly, as well as UC Davis. The band has toured extensively, including the 1988 World's Fair in Brisbane Australia, the Midosuji Parade in Osaka, Japan, 2007 Pro Bowl in Hawaii and Oktoberfests in both Munich, Germany & Blumenau, Brasil. 2010 will find the band touring New York, Philadelphia and then marching in the Independence Day Parade in Washington DC. Back at home you'll find us regulars at Campbell's Oktoberfest, California State Fair, Northstar at Tahoe, Stockton's Asparagus Festival, Solano Stroll.

While we do many parades and do actually march a little, we find it difficult to categorize ourselves as a traditional Marching Band. Instead, we favor Street Band, Festival Band, Rock & Roll Big Band, Party Band.

If you like your band music big and loud, but still tasty & musical, give us a listen. We know you'll like it. Find us on the web at www.repercussions.com. Check back with us as we do plan on releasing a 2nd CD Album of all new songs.

Groovy Marching Band stuff
I was not a band-geek in high school, let's get that out of the way. That's odd, given that my other 3 sibling all were to some extent. Those who can, do - those who can't, criticize. Well, fast-forward 25 years and I'm fortunate to see the California Repercussions at a Napa Valley event, and I'm really stoked. On top of that, 2 of my 3 off-spring are band-geeks, and we're committed band-parents, which means hearing a lot of marching bands and field shows butcher a lot of popular songs from when I was in high school.

So I guess my standard is unfairly high. Then I heard the red-shirted Repercussions marching at an upscale Napa Valley event and was impressed - these folks can really play those pop standards, with recognizable arrangements and they even remain in-step. Not bad for a bunch of geezers my age (or even older). I saw an email announcement of this album's availability and bought it on a whim, but I've played the album several times already. My band-geek 15-yo says it's "good but the horns need to tighten-up", which seems to be what band-geeks say when something is really good but they still want to pick a fault.

It's fun stuff. Our House caught me at first, but Love Shack and Tuxedo Junction grew on me, then I Wan'Na Be Like You pulled me under to the rest. It's all good, all fun, and I'm playing it even now.

Band geeks.
