It was a chilly afternoon in December when the rockin' reggae band from New Paltz called The Big Takeover worked their way up Interstate-87 to our little studios.  They packed all seven members into our studio.

Their latest album marks their ten year anniversary.  "Silly Girl" takes us on a trip to Jamaica for serious ska and reggae influences.  Hear the results of the session we did below.
