My dad wrote this magnificent tune last year during the time of the 2009 Red River flooding. It is also a tribute with a unique, humourous touch to the famous 1997 Red River flood in Manitoba.
This song was actually recorded live last April at The Meeting Place (my Church in downtown Winnipeg) during a CMDS (Christian Medical and Dental Society) coffee house show-type gathering. Now, this past March, my dad decided to legitimately record this sweet thing and get some others and I involved! He went back to his friend's ol' studio: Apple Blossom Sounds (it's such a sweet Man-Cave... you'll see; Vlog to come!), where he recorded his last album: Booster Shot, and then it all fell into place from there! We finished mixing the song on March 27th and then started to get the recording out to radio stations in the days right after. It was played on Hot 103's Ace Burpee Morning Show around 9:30 am on March 29th!! I can now say that my music has been played on the radio. It reminds me of the awesome movie: That Thing You Do... SO GOOD! I documented a lot of our recording experience... so stay tuned and be ready for: Red River Risin', The Making Of... the Vlog!!!
So here we go! I hope you enjoy this groovin', jazzy number from Randy Goossen and Company! Check it OUT and enjoy (watch 'til the end to receive a sneak peak of my documenting footage and also some wise, reflecting words from the one and only, my father, Randy Goossen)!
