We had such a blast writing, recording, producing, and releasing this new record. It is a true representation of the first year of the Party Band- 10 original songs by past and present members, 24 people recording live in a room.

Recorded at Wellspring Sound in Acton by Pat “Mr Nice Guy” Meany.
Mixed at Wellspring Sound by Matt “Purple” Hayes.
Mastered by Brian “Ears” Redmond at The Fuzzbox.
Album front/back collages and inside layout/design by Seth “Brass Monkey” Bailin.
Band photos by Amanda “Mandee” Macchia.
Hand drawings by Dave “The Wizard” Garcia.

Here is a screen shot of the process of designing the CD artwork. Hope you enjoy the new album. Stay in touch with the Party Band on Facebook and Twitter to find out when our next shows are. Peace, love, and trombones!


The Riverhawk Party Band is releasing a brand new album of 10 original songs called Transcendenta at The Blue Shamrock/Gemstones on March 29, 2014. But that is only part of the whole story. The album release is coinciding with the fourth installment of The Party Band’s seasonal jazz extravaganza, Pure Cosmic Bop / Heavy Space Jams, where over 20 local bands will perform 45-60 minute sets over the course of 13-hours in a club with three stages. This is an all-ages event, designed to support an accepting, vibrant, musical community. The Party Band will have a new line of merchandise ready for the event including: Tee Shirts, LPs, CDs, Stickers, Posters, and 5 oz bottles of original-recipe, homemade HOT SAUCE.

unofficial schedule of live music- downtown Lowell, Folk Fest Weekend

Before you head out the door this weekend to check out the Lowell Folk Fest, go ahead and print this out and put it in your pocket. It’s a schedule of as much of the live music performances slated to happen this weekend as I could find from flyers, facebook, word of mouth, phone calls, and this local band guide that Howl in Lowell put together. So, go downtown, catch the international artists at the Folk Festival, grub up on some street food, then head to a bar or art gallery and soak in some of the best local bands our city has to offer. I hope to see you this weekend, the time of year that Lowell is at its most musical, most social, and most energized state. Let’s make some noise.

Improv Trio this Saturday

Live improvised music at Brew’d Awakening this Saturday. Derek, Curran, and I will be exploring new territory; we all have new instruments and this will be our first performance with some of our new sounds. I have been playing flute recently, Derek has been studying the tabla, and Curran just installed a MIDI pickup on his guitar. We have all played in President Soup for a few years together, so come downtown and listen to familiar friends speak new languages.

The Party Band plays for the Wang Middle School

Lowell’s new brass band sensation The Riverhawk Party Band performs for the 5th and 6th grade students of the Wang Middle School on June 7, 2013. Performing in the local middle schools for young students is a whole new path of opportunity that I have never previously explored as a gigging musician. The amount of energy you can feel from a room full of 12-year-olds is amazing and inspiring. This was our 3rd middle school visit in the spring of 2013, and we hope to do more in the fall.

The Riverhawk Party Band for this show featured: myself Seth Bailin on saxophone; Anthony Prestigiovanni on trumpet; Kevin Webb, Mike Kaskiewitz, and Austin Condee on trombones; Savannah Marshall on bass drum; Danny Dugan on snare drum; Kyle Rees on cymbals; Devon Hurt on electric bass; Joseph Prieto on upright bass; and all the amazing students who joined us on stage with percussion!
