Half Step

half step bandIt was 1998 when I started bothering Half Step to try and record them. I had showed up with a real-to-real and hit record on a warm summers night in Saratoga Springs, NY. at a bar called Aiko’s. The next thing I new, I had a sound board in my hand and was set up in the very same bar I had met them all in. Years later, 15 or so, they are still playing from time to time and this recent recording has surfaced from the Fire on the Mountain show at West mountain on February 13th, 2015
