Album Notes
Close to 70 musicians contributed to this, our second album. Tracks 1-3 & 15-16 were recorded over 2 days in a very large studio at The Annex in Menlo Park. Each Section was miked and tracked separately, with drum section sub-mixed into stereo. Additional overdub tracks for Solos were added later. Russell Bond was our Recording Engineer and also did mixing. This same session back in 2010 also produced the 15 tracks on our first CD & featured a smaller 40-piece band.

The remaining 11 tracks were recorded in 2013 at an even bigger studio called the Hangar in Sacramento. It was large enough for us to play with over 60 musicians, which is typical for our larger gigs. Scott McChane was our Recording Engineer, mixing the new tracks and mastering the CD.

Road Scholars describes both our academic beginnings from UC’s Davis, Berkeley & Santa Barbara and our appetite for travel, taking 8 international and 3 domestic Road Trips over our 30+ years of performing. We’ve played a lot of songs at a lot of gigs. We can honestly say we enjoyed each and every one of them and hope you, our audiences did too.

We've taken some of our favorite tunes into some large studios and worked with a couple great engineers so that we might offer our fans a typical "Reaper" set to take home with them. Not already a fan? Give us a listen, buy a CD, and seek us out. Also check out our 2010 CD, There Will Be Repercussions.

As of 2013, the band has performed continuously for 31 years & has since recruited many graduates from UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara, and Cal Poly, as well as UC Davis. The band has toured extensively, including the 1988 World's Fair in Brisbane Australia, the Midosuji Parade in Osaka, Japan, 2007 Pro Bowl in Hawaii and Oktoberfests in both Munich, Germany & Blumenau, Brasil. Back at home you'll find us regulars at Campbell's Oktoberfest, California State Fair, Northstar at Tahoe, Stockton's Asparagus Festival, Solano Stroll.

While we do many parades and do actually march a little, we find it difficult to categorize ourselves as a traditional Marching Band. Instead, we favor Street Band, Festival Band, Rock & Roll Big Band, Party Band.

If you like your band music big and loud, but still tasty & musical, give us a listen. We know you'll like it. Check back with us as we may some day do a 3rd CD Album of all new songs.

Thanks, from California Repercussions
