We Take This Seriously…

1 Nov

Hello everyone,

A couple of days back; we launched our first photo campaign titled “We take this seriously”.  The idea came a while ago when Joel began to explain the concept of a photo advertising campaign.  This particular campaign would serve towards giving our band the professional image it deserves and it would also be a great feature to include in our website.

After an intense brainstorming session one Saturday, we came up with the ideas for the three photos we were going to take.  These photos would be accompanied by a short copy describing the concept creatively.  We then carried out a few meetings in order to get the details settled (what photographer, setting, wardrobe, props, etc…).  Once everything was settled, it was time to execute.

We met with Abdelitoh Troy; a young, Panamanian photographer who is quickly gaining recognition for his picture taking not only here in Panama, but internationally as well (he just won a scholarship to obtain his masters degree in Spain, how amazing is that!).  We didn’t really know what to expect.  We had heard great things about him and after our first meeting; we knew we had acquired a friend.

We decided on dates for the photo shoots and then booked the locations.  It was our job to prepare the sets as well according to the concepts we had decided on.  Joel took the responsibility of editing the pictures once they were given to us. It was a lot of work, but the end result definitely made it all worth it.  Below are the three pictures along with their copy…

At the Show

So what if they don’t want to listen? There are probably millions just like them, but among those millions there are thousands that do want to listen, and we’d have no problem playing our hearts out for them every night, because at the end of the day it’s quite clear…We take this seriously.

At the Office

We don’t like to call it our job, but then again, what else would you call the endless hours we devote to fueling our dream? Whether its producing tunes, working on designs or managing finances, at the end of the day its quite clear…We take this seriously.

At the Studio

Cramming into a room not big enough to fit the band is not exactly comforting, but when succeeding is the ultimate goal, comfort is not always an option. We do what it takes; even if that means sacrificing a few commodities here or there because at the end of the day it’s quite clear…We take this seriously.

A Quick Update…

24 Oct

Hello readers!

It is a sunny afternoon here in Panama City, Panama and I feel the urge to write.

Basically I’m going to write about what the band has been up to lately.

Our Webpage

We came up with this concept a while back.  We decided we needed a website we could call our own and thanks to the talent of out Lead Guitar player Joel, this is becoming a reality.  For those of you who don’t know, Joel is an amazingly talented Graphic Designer and he also happens to design websites.

Our website will include the images to a photo campaign I will be introducing in this blog, videos, a meet the band section, links to all of our pages in the social media networks were associated with for example Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Myspace, WordPress etc… among other little surprises.  It will be ready real soon so we are really looking forward to that!

Pre-production to our Debut Album

Getting in the studio and jamming out our old, new and current songs in order to; first of all, modernize them to the best of our ability.  This process has proved to be amazing.  It is actually the first time we are rehearsing our songs freely with no show in mind and with no pressure on our backs.  We are free to improvise and think outside the box with our music which is a first.  We have already achieved major improvements on some of our old songs.  Our debut album will sound amazing.  If it doesn’t we’ll probably jump off a bridge or something…no biggie.

A lot more coming up so keep in touch!

Gargage Logo. By Joel Mendez (Oh Yes Yo!)

How can an Independent Panamanian rock band attempt to make a living by doing only what they love the most?  You probably can’t think of a definitive answer to this question, and not surprisingly, neither can we, but we’re willing to give it our all to find the answer.

Celebrate every victory; suffer every defeat and live every moment side by side as we discover what it takes to share our music and art across the globe.  Get involved.  Become a part of our story…
