VACANCY
VACANCY CD COVER
The Don Argento Band 10 track self-produced VACANCY LP was expertly mastered by Chris Unck, formerly a Black Widow in Butch Walker's band, and most recently on tour with Lisa Loeb. Chris' solo work is incredibly awesome and addictive. I strongly encourage purchasing his albums.

THE RECORDING WORKSHOP


 

 

 







This is the place I've recorded most of my tunes over the years. It's a great educational facility with students attending from all over the world. Many of them have went on to lead successful careers in the music biz as recording engineers, producers, live sound engineers, and technicians.

FARM AID


 

 

 






Each year, Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews headline a Farm Aid concert to bring together a wide variety of musicians, farmers and fans for one mission: keeping family farmers on their land.
