Neville's Quarter Live Show

Recorded on October 17th, 2018. We have a quarter of a band in with Neville’s Quarter today. Together we all make a half, which is nice for a change! The band is normally Zach Drill and the Bits, but for limited spatial reasons we are hanging out with just a drill and one bit today: Zach Driland Dan Friedman . We have constructed a good show for y’all with “Never Stop Singing” (NQ), “Sunny Day Dreams” (ZD), “Grand Theft Heart” (ZD), and “Storybrook Window” (ZD), and to finish “Plenty of Nothing” (NQ). We chose to finish the show with this because it is International Eradication of Poverty Day. May poverty troubles lessen throughout all the world! Donate to a hunger relief program today! Help the poor in whatever you can today.Dan and Zach want you to reach out to them if you are an aspiring recording artist. Studio Z is an extremely well outfitted room, and they know their stuff.
