Nature's Symphony  

Recorded samples on Tuesday, the 11th, at Beaver Creek reserve, in EC county in Wisconsin Land.  Doing studio work for a music video that we will Shoot Friday!  It should be a blast.  Here is a SOUND CLOUD link to me hitting a bunch of noise makers and making a song out of it!

Potent upcoming event: "Smashing Ideals" (Live show and broadcast!) 

Hey gang, 
Some of you may know about 
Christina's and my passion to share our story and warnings about the rippling effects of pop-culture on our lives regarding sex and marriage, finances, the American "Ideal," and personal image. With the Music of The Michael Rambo Project, we are putting on a live show Sept. 12th with a fantastic video production team headed up by Alex Kolb to help get the message out to people who are desperate to find out that they don't have to live up to the crushing expectations that our culture puts on us, but rather are set free by Jesus Christ. Many people are giving their time and talent to this production to allow costs to be at a minimal. If you want to lend a hand getting this production out, check out the link below.  With your help we can cover the rest of the costs of equipment rental and professional services needed to put out a refreshing message for such a time as this!  And don't forget the show on the 12th!  6:30 doors open, and 7:00 the filming starts.

Release Date for Sue Orfield Show 

Hey everybody-
The Sue Orfield Show is a top-notch local production to feature regional acts in an hour long episode, complete with interview snippets and a recorded concert in front of a live studio audience.  Check out the bands for the first season (Including MRP!) and when they plan to release each segment: HERE

Eau Claire arts ralley funds around a local music Show! 

Hey guys, we 100% support and promote the efforts made by Chippewa Valley Community Television and the Sue Orfield show for promoting the unique and excellent local music artists in the Chippewa Valley (where we are from!).  Please check out the Indie Gogo campaign and consider a donation (2 days left, and tons of perks!)  The MRProject will be featured as a part of Season 1 of the S.O.S., and you can expect to see snippets on Youtube etc.  It was a great night!

Technology blurb: the Pigtronix Infinity Looper Pedal 

One of our newest live technologies for the MRProject is the Pigtronix infinity looper pedal.  It has a duel parallel instrument input with multiplying length options on the 2nd loop.  It also has midi sync, zero latency 24 bit/44 kHz HD recording engine and  sequence loop options.  What the heck does all this mean?
I am pretty simple.  I like to play live.  I don't like to press a lot of buttons or scroll through computer stuff.  This pedal allows us to play live loops perfectly in sync with each other at better than cd quality from both our keyboards and guitar.  No backtracks... just raw musicianship.  This gives us the extra punch we need at the top of the hook, because- yes, we sound like more than 4 people:).

The Fabulous Four 

For those of your from Eau Claire- Do you remember our epic release show?  (If you need a reminder, here is a clip).  Well, as it turns out, it isn't as economical to sport 18 musicians every show.  So, for the last 2 months, we have been preparing our fabulous 4.   On drums is Adam Harder-Nussbaum (recently married).  He is fairly new (17months) in Eau Claire, but has already nestled into the scene nicely.  Aside from his musical free-lance work, he is also the part-time pastor at Shalom Mennonite Church on the East Hill.   Replacing me on keys is David Hurd, we studied at Eau Claire together, though I was a few years ahead.  His prowess at classical piano, and his musicianship have made it easy to play sheet music that we transcribed from the recordings.  David also servers as Music Director at the Bridge Church, in Downtown Eau Claire.  Derek Pribnow has really patched into the MRP in multiple ways: Drums, Sound, and his latest installment- Bass.  His knowledge of both sound and the material, and his versatility have made him invaluable.  Derek also works as a Developer and Systems Administrator in Chippewa Falls.  Myself- well I am playing guitar for now.  Don't worry- we will still have vocalists and guests alongside us at performances from time to time.
