JOey Stuckey Alive Day is coming this Friday!

I’ll be doing a solo set at 5:00 – playing some jazz and some Christmas-a-la-Tom tunes taken from the CHRISTmas album, as well as some surprises from the Accessible Depth album. I’ll also be playing with the Joey Stuckey Band at around 9:00.

It’s a free event down on Third Street in downtown Macon – come on by!

 

Live Performance: Joey Stuckey Alive Day – 9/29/2017

Tom Rule will perform solo keyboard as part of the Joey Stuceky Alive Day in Macon, GA on 9/29/2017

I’ll be a part of the 1st annual Joey Stuckey Alive Day on September 29th in downtown Macon. My solo set will be at 5 pm, and [of course] I’ll be playing with the band later on that evening – on toward’s 9 or 10 or so.

It looks like it’s going to be a big night – several different acts, a great sound system, food trucks…..all in all, a lot of fun..and FREE!

I’ll have albums for sale, and I’m sure Joey and the other bands will as well.

Hope to see you there!

“Moondance” – Joey Stuckey Band

Recently the Joey Stuckey Band – with whom I’ve been playing for umpteen yeas now – gathered down at Joey’s studio [Shadowsound] to shoot some video of some of our favorites.

Brian Bogle, the sax player, is a killer video editor [with pro creds a mile long] as well as sax player. He played sax on several tunes on my CHRISTmas album.

Enjoy!

It Should Be Called CHRISTmas LIVE - the 2016 solo piano album by Tom Rule

Almost ready! “IT Should Be Called CHRISTmas LIVE”

In December of 2015, to celebrate the release of my last album It Should Be Called CHRISTmas, I did a live webcast of many of the tunes on solo piano from the piano the album was recorded on, down at ShadowSound Studios in Macon.

The performance went so well that I decided to release the audio from the performance as a digital only release.

I prevailed on my family graphics/marketing team again to tweak the album design, and the album is ALMOST ready for public consumption.

Although the album will sound MUCH better than the original video audio, you can watch the show over on youtube at http://bit.ly/CHRISTmasLIVE

If you’d like to hear the back-stories on the original album, here are some short videos I recorded telling them –> http://bit.ly/CHRISTmasStories

Live Performance @ the Steinway Gallery

Last Saturday I performed with the Inimitable Joey Stuckey at the Steinway Piano Gallery in Alpharetta, GA [aka outside Atlanta]. IT was a PHENOMENAL piano, in perfect shape. I was in awe!

We did some jazz standards, plus several tunes from our album MIXTURE, and I played a couple of tracks from “It Should Be Called CHRISTmas”.

Compliments of the iPhone in the back, bungee-corded to a music stand, and Facebook, there is a video at bit.ly/jsbsteinway.

Please check it out, and share!

Recording MIXTURE – the process

Joey Stuckey and I recorded a video looking at the process we used to record Joey’s album MIXTURE. It was an interesting amalgam of all the different methods used by artists over the last several decades.

CHRISTmas Live in process……

I gave a live online CD release performance back in December celebrating the CHRISTmas album. Almost done editing the video. More news soon! #CHRISTmas #CHRISTmasLive

I was in Barnes & Noble today….

And saw the book of music paper that I spent over a year writing in for the CHRISTmas album.

  
It made me wonder – briefly – if there was another album rattling around in my brain.

As I pondered that – and thought about what went into the album, and what it took out of me – I thought

Maybe. But not yet. Definitely not now.
