Music and Performance Production
Listening to "Hunter"
Playing to a packed house at Nashua's only replica ship/bar/venue in a hotel combo, Hunter Stamas, lead singer of Hunter and her band played an album release show to remember. Between getting the lead singer of Prospect Hill to introduce, a heavy light rig, a smashed guitar and an enthusiastic hometown crowd, Hunter did a great job of sending her new music out to the fanfare it deserves.
Back in the studio with "Gunsmoke"
After their successful run of studio videos last year, Windwood is once again in the Studio with Connecticut's favorite classic country western band, "Gunsmoke." With a loyal fanbase and a multi-generational history spanning over 30 years, Gunsmoke's presence on facebook continues to grow with their popular "in the studio" videos, and Windwood couldn't be happier to help! Until the series drops, here's a look at our time with Gunsmoke at their popular summer show at the Levitt Pavilion in Westport, Connecticut. www.gunsmokeband.com
