Happy holidays to everyone. It’s been a great year at Hey Now Records and the culmination of the great year we’ve had won’t be fully realized until the next calendar year. That’s okay with us. We’re patient over here. Big news is coming. However, we do have our 7th annual Christmas single to offer and this one is sure to be an instant classic. It’s a bluesy little number called “What’d Ya Ask Santa For?” and it’s bound to get you up out of your holiday recliner to do some boogie-woogie time on the dance floor with your favorite partner.
Special shout out to Carter Howe for contributing the artwork to this single. It’s looks great and we look forward to seeing more of his design work in the future.
So, what or who exactly is O’Boogie & The Fireman?
Well, it’s a new band…BUT…the music isn’t new. It’s been around for a long time and I’m sure it’s very familiar to most of you. You see, Dr. Winston O’Boogie was a pseudonym used by John Lennon on his Walls and Bridges album and The Fireman is what Paul McCartney uses for a name when he wants to release music that he feels may freak out Beatles fans because it’s somewhat progressive.
The name O’Boogie & The Fireman (in place of Lennon and McCartney) represents the way the band likes to approach the music of the Beatles and all four of their solo careers. They are bluesy. They are jammy. They are heavy rocking. Still, though, at the same time, very faithful. It will all make sense when you see them playing all over the Boston area this summer.
Be sure to catch a show. It’s going to be damn good.
Did we mention that our own David Mansfield is playing guitar in this band?
Be sure to check out their website for more information and show dates. You can also find their show dates here at Hey Now Records.
David Mansfield is proud to announce the release of his new EP “For The Light That Shines Before You”!
“For The Light That Shines Before You” was as dream. It features a great deal of common musical symbolism and imagery, but also features a friendly and anonymous truck driver, a lengthy ride up a foggy hillside, and the release of everything old to embrace all that is new. The songs have been strung together one to the next to put you in the middle of this vibrant, truthful ride up a steep hillside, finally placing you at the top of the universe, lending you the opportunity to look down into the valley of all that is good, bad, ugly, sacred, and true.
