What’s This Called? with Tres Gone, Live!
(Containing the soothing sounds of Tres Gone performing live.)

Saturdays were made for radio, and whenever Eric Hausmann is in the house, it can only mean that you must be listening to What’s This Called?   Ricardo Wang and I work to bring you a soothing performance by Tres Gone: Mike Mahaffay, Scott Steele and Eric, bringing you improvisational mastery in a way to kick off your weekend.

Following a half-hour pre-game show featuring hand-picked selections by the host himself, I mixed a great back and forth by these improvisational masters.  While many young artists love to just make some noise, when you have performers of this caliber, the art of listening seems to be front and center in this show.  This is one of those great shows where you can actually feel the energy in the room in the performance as its recorded, and you can take a look at the pictures and video I shot at the link below.  I love working with musicians of this nature, and I can only hope that you can tell.

Thanks again, everyone for letting be a part of this show.  Take care!

One thought on “What’s This Called? with Tres Gone, Live!

  1. Reblogged this on Mid-Valley Mutations and commented:

    I only got to meet Mike Mahaffay a handful of times, and saw him play a few more than that. He was an incredibly performer, and very friendly to me, always. Here is a radio session I did with him and Eric Hausmann and Scott Steele on Ricardo Wang’s program, back in 2013. This includes full video of the performance (sadly, from only unflattering angle), but has some of the best sounds that I was happily able to capture for the future.

    RIP, Mike Mahaffay. You played fantastically for me and my friends at my 40th Birthday Party, and if there’s any justice in the world, everyone will always remember you as a friend first and an fantastic performer second. Thanks for sharing a small part of your life with me.
