This edition of "Midwest BEAT with Tom Lounges" was originally aired on 10-13-20 on 89.1FM-Lakeshore Public Radio.
GUESTS: DONALD KINSEY & JOHN HUBER
For this edition, a brand new music video project and new song written by DONALD KINSEY of The Wailers and Kinsey Report fame was debuted for the first time to the public.
Inspired by the COVID 19 pandemic, the song "STAND UNITED," and its video companion is a regionally produced project featuring performances by a variety of locally popular musicians. The virtual video production features performances by Keith Jackson ( first cousin of The Jackson Five) and keyboardist TJ (both of Triple Dose Band), bassist Ed Brann, guitarist Nic Byrd, and vocalists Lee Godlewski and Rebecca Anne.
Along with Donald Kinsey, also in-studio for this program was the project's audio/video engineer JOHN HUBER of The Spot Studio. Huber proved his studio skills both on the audio and visual side of the project by syncing things up tightly, making it hard to imagine that all the pieces of this musical puzzle where recorded far and wide using a variety of cameras of varying quality. The veteran producer/engineer discusses the complexity of creating this kind of virtual performance.
