23min of Ska Cross Over : Checkered Cast

At it again with Checkered Cast! This time I’m teaming up with Tara for the hardest and most rewarding episode so far! We both have such similar tastes that I’ve played a lot of what she had ideas for, but we got through it! And this episode is all the better for the hard work she put into it (that and having to deal with me!)

23min of Ska : Wooden

23skaCOASTER1Here’s an episode that lives up to the whole “roller coaster” premise. It starts a little slow, setting you up and then BAM you’re in the middle of a bunch of nonstop action… there’s a small lull and then you’re right back in the thick of it until the end. That’s the idea, but I haven’t always been hitting the mark, but this one I did, this one is one of the best examples of what I wanted to accomplish with this session so far. Hope you all enjoy it as well.
