Day 1 of Recording at Woolly Mammoth

Johnny Blazes and The Pretty Boys are venturing into new territory — we’re recording an original tune!  We’re working with the immensely talented, hilarious, and sweet Dave Minehan at Woolly Mammoth Sound in Waltham, MA.  We went in on Friday March 29 to lay down rhythm section and reference vocals, and we’ll be back in another week to add horns and more vocals.  Check out the beautiful studio in our pictures below – and check back for news on the release of the single later this year!
