Times I Rushed In

Another example of a scratched record. But that’s why you’re here, right?

I like this for the guitar tone that comes in around the five minute mark. It sounds like the Hagstrom Viking through Dave’s Celestion Alnico Blues. But previous to that throughout the song it sounds like the Peavey Predator … housing pickups from a 1972 Fender Stratocaster, courtesy of Uncle Al.

Upon The Road To Dreaming – 2010-02-14

Upon The Road to Dreaming

This was Valentine’s Day 2010, rockin’ out with The Midnights!

We recorded a bunch of songs during our practice that night and pretty much all of them have a missed note or more. Regardless, there are parts in each of them that shine through. The Story of The Midnights Band!

We have a lot of scratched records.

In The News: Charlie Parr with The Midnights at NDMOA

On Tuesday, July 5, hundreds gathered outside of the North Dakota Museum of Art to see Charlie Parr, an internationally renowned bluegrass and folk musician.

The Midnights, who opened for Charlie Parr, formed in the summer of 2007, with Mr. Joe Greenwood bringing some of his home-spun tunes. The name is derived from the band’s rehearsal time slot from 12:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. The rehearsal time was a unique requirement for the Midnights, as Greenwood could only rehearse after he got off work from the Grand Forks Herald newspaper.
