Album Notes
Expassionates began as a recording project in 1998. Scott Easterday had a collection of songs to record. He hired Chad Meise as recording engineer and they set up shop in the historic El Torreon Ballroom for its unique acoustics.

The large ballroom is the only surviving jazz hall of its kind from Kansas City’s jazz era. El Torreon later became a concert venue, the Cowtown Ballroom, and then a skating rink, before becoming an antiques market and ultimately a church.

Chad Meise set up recording equipment and a control room in the historic ballroom. Easterday sang and played guitar and keyboards and hired musicians from diverse backgrounds in rock, country and jazz. Bryan Hicks, bass; Ryan Bennett, drums; Marco Pascolini, guitar; Richard Alwyn, harmonica; Mark Southerland, saxophone; Nate Hofer, pedal steel and Jazzbo (Bill Hargrave), trumpet.

The resulting album is Verse, Chorus, Bridge, released in December 1998. It's a concept album that's best heard beginning to end. Over the years it's gathered a following of loyal fans.
