It's a cold wind that blows down the Santa Ynez Valley

The Debra Farris Band at Seven South
In late August of 2003, the Debra Farris Band -- comprising Debra on vocals and guitar, Bob Pester on guitar, Mike Dietzmann on drums, and Andrew Duncan on bass -- spent a week of late nights with engineer/producer Ed Layola at Santa Barbara's Seven South studio, trying to capture the excitement of their live performances.
Ed, the mellow engineer/producer. Not many of either can tune a set of drums.
Debra sings it like it is.
David Gilmour stops by. (No, really it's Bob!)
Andrew plays all his parts in the control room. How appropriate.
Mike, fresh from the Rolling Stones tour.
Andrew tries to get funky.
Debra does get funky.
I know it's midnight, but could you try that solo again?
DFB at Lynn McLaren's on New Years Day 2004
The Debra Farris Band were invited by Lynn McLaren to play at her beautiful house in Ojai for a New Years Day party. Here are some photos that go some way to show what a fine day it was.

Up close and personal.

Tom and Rob Henderson play the blues. Debra sits in (literally) on the Cajón, a drum.
More blues. These guys were outstanding!
And yet more blues.
