Dan Band starts recording soon

The Dan Tyminski Band showcasing at IBMA 2008 (CBA suite)We caught up with Adam Steffey on Friday, and he shared some details on the upcoming – and highly-anticipated – debut recording from The Dan Tyminski Band.

Adam told us that they would be getting together in Nashville on November 18 to take publicity photos and perhaps rehearse a bit, and then spend the next three days heading into Thanksgiving recording with a vengeance. The completed master is expected to be delivered to Rounder early in ’08, and the label is apparently intending to rush it into production before spring.

The new band will feature Tyminski on guitar, Steffey on mandolin, Barry Bales on bass, Ron Stewart on banjo and Justin Moses on fiddle.

Adam mentioned that several tracks for a future Dan Tyminski solo project were recorded at the same time as the sessions for Ron Block’s Doorway CD, with Tyminski, Steffey and Bales along with Block on banjo. He wasn’t sure if those tracks might end up on the new project, perhaps with Stewart and Moses re-cutting tracks, or whether those songs might be re-cut from scratch.

The band is accepting dates for ’08 and beyond, and the current schedule can be found on the Keith Case web site.
