The original Trio members are all Ada High graduates, and Hoover is a former Ada High football player. Roulston was born in Ada but was raised in the metropolis of Sasakwa.
The Tasty Trio has been performing shows all around the region since September.
“We practice and write pretty much four days a week. When we finally got our set list very padded — with over 10 originals — we decided it was time to record,” Hoover said.
So after many sessions with John Cheadle of Treehouse Studios in Ada, the band finally had a CD ready to distribute.
“After it was all said and done, the album — which doesn’t have a name at this time — sounds amazing. Took us around two and a half weeks to record, edit and mix,” Hoover said.
CDs will be available for purchase at the band’s next show — scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 29, at Applebee’s restaurant in Ada. That show begins at 11 a.m. and will run to closing time (2 a.m.). Fans can purchase the album at that time for $3 apiece.
“The album artwork and cases won't be ready in time for the 29th, so that is why we are selling them so cheap. I hope everyone can make the free show and can get a copy or two of the album,” Hoover said.
The album includes the following 10 originals: Down The Road, Cold Wedge, Now & Forever, Howlin’ Woman, Tomorrow, Cherry Wine, Night & Day, The Shuffle (Drunkin’ Avenue), Spanish Tap, 8462 and Tasty Space. During live shows, the Tasty Trio also performs many familiar covers, including my favorite Another Brick in the Wall by Pink Floyd and Don’t Let Me Down by The Beatles.
Check them out Saturday night. You won’t be disappointed.
