Philadelphia, PA.-> Last month, StanzStudios’ owner, Adam Stan had the extreme pleasure filling in as guest engineer for 88.5fm WXPN‘s The Key Studio Sessions to record a live studio performance of the band Marah inside the World Cafe´ Studios. Loading-in early on a Sunday afternoon, Marah was kind enough to still squeeze in the session before a gig that night. Playing six songs, most of which where one take and done, even though the session was not live on-air. That afternoon, Marah was just that focused, rehearsed, and extremely determined to make their gig that night. Those are the descriptions and reputations that experienced, successful bands are known by.
Check out the review of The Key Studio Sessions with Marah, and listen to some of the tunes recorded as well. Guaranteed to enjoy some downright wholesome music. Eventually, you’ll hear in the Marah Key Session recordings, a 10 year old named Gus Tritsch. Well, let me just say that this kid knows what it takes to play Rock N’ Roll!
In other StanzStudios news, back at the start of the 2013-’14 Flyers season, the studio’s audio for media department, One Take Tommy, wrote and produced a 30 sec radio commercial for the “hot dog mecca of the world”, in Philadelphia, Hot Diggity. To celebrate Hot Diggity’s expansion into the Wells Fargo Center, 97.5fm The Fanatic will be airing the fresh off the grill Hot Diggity commercial during all Flyers games broadcasts! So put the next time the Flyers game on the TV, hit the mute button, and turn on the radio to 97.5fm (thats right I said the RADIO!) and listen for the exciting and entertaining commercial about the gourmet hot dog restaurant Hot Diggity. “And After One Bite, You’ll Be Yelling, HOT DIGGITY!”
From your air waves to your personal music player… StanzStudios has been producing audio content that will have your ears begging for more. Since the beginning of the New Year, the ear drums of StanzStudio have been a buzz recording the band Primatives. Primatives wants nothing more then to rock your face off! A hard rock sound with a classic rock feel, Primatives will take you on a Rock N’ Roll journey that you have not been on in a long time.
A three guitarist band, Primatives play with heavy riffs and killer licks. Making rockin’ songs with driving beats. Rhythm guitarist and frontman Kyle Ranshaw, sets the tone. Double tracking Kyle’s Les Paul puts the band in a whole other playing field. Ranshaw’s lyrics stem from real life experiences with an attitude that can only be derived from living in a crowded small town. Complimenting the rhythm and each other are lead guitarist’s Dave Harvey and Tim Daggan. Their fast picking and memorizing melodies would give Edward Van Halen a run for his money! Providing the heart beat and banging the skins is James Berardi. James packs a big stick and plays the perfect pocket for three guitarist to play in. And Andy Buch fills out the low end with his fat, round, full sounding bass tone. You can’t help but to notice and be amazed at how many bass riffs Buch is able to fit into the Primatives big three guitar sound.
If you listen to Sabbath, Zeppelin, Queens of the Stone Age, or even more grunge music, then your bound to be a Primatives fan. Primatives are currently gigging around the tri-state area. Most recently headlining the highly renowned main stage at the Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia’s China Town section. Like the band’s Facebook page to keep up to date on the band future performances. And stay tuned for the release of debut EP of Primatives!
