Three Sturgeon Bay high school alumni will professionally record music with Rian Dawson, the drummer from the famed band, “All Time Low”.
Reid Stevenson, Robert Desotelle, and Sean Sannito will be heading down to Nashville, Tennessee in January for a week of ten hour long days to produce and record a demo EP under their band name, “How Bout No”. Rian Dawson will serve as their sound engineer in the studio. In addition to improving their sound, the hope is to also try and build a serious connection in the music industry.
This collaboration has been in the works for about two years. Stevenson has been connecting with Rian Dawson’s manager, sending him their current “How Bout No” demos. Dawson decided to choose to record with them over countless other bands.
Although the opportunity is incredibly unique, it is expensive. “How Bout No” has put on small concerts – including one with prepaid tickets at Stevenson’s house – as well as designing and selling their own t-shirts, in order to fund this project.
This is what Robert Desotelle, the drummer for “How Bout No”, had to say regarding community support for the band.
Not only will the three members of “How Bout No” have a unique experience, but they will be taking a legitimate step of attaining a dream.
