been busy here (always a good thing), and in the midst of it all, we've
fallen w-a-a-a-a-y behind on keeping our friends up to date on what's
been happening. The most recent event is one that should never have
happened, but it seems to have caused no lasting damage.
On August 13th, High End Sound's owner and
chief engineer was involved in a pretty nasty car accident. On
his way home from getting his car inspected, he was driving north on
Rte. 66, when Paul momentarily lost control of his car and drifted
the center line. Waiting to meet him in the southbound lane was a
semi tractor trailer moving at a rate of 40 mph, the same speed at
which Paul was traveling. Miraculously, the driver of the semi
saw what was happening and the catastrophic results that maneuver his vehicle to its right in time to avoid the
head on impact which would otherwise have occurred.
Nevertheless, the left front fender of Paul's car struck the semi at a
point about 3/4 of the way to its rear bumper. The
local EMS arrived quickly and emergency workers were able to free Paul
from the wreck. He was taken to Columbia Memorial Hospital in
Hudson, NY, where he was treated for some head injuries. About 8
hours later, he was taken home by his wife, Leslie, who has been
nursing him back to health.
BREAKING NEWS FROM THE EDGE OF
HIGH END SPACE
PAUL MILLER QUARTET TEMPORARILY GETS A FOURTH MEMBER TO BECOME A QUINTET(?)
you came to see the PMQ at any of our gigs, you witnessed a different
side of SNARF. A close friend of the band, Michael Crane, whose
wife, Victoria Brill has done "Live Paintings Of The Sight of Music",
suggested back in March that our original performance piece Toxic Assets should include the reciting of poetry during the exposition of the piece's
main thematic material. In the meantime, the extended drum solo that has long been
associated with Toxic Assets has kept extending in spite of Paul's recent injuries.
Vicoria, after many years of living together finally made it
legal! In July the two were wed in a beautiful outdoor civil
ceremony presided over by Mayor Hallenbeck of Hudson.
Unfortunately (for the band) the first item on the couple's agenda was
to sell their house in Philmont and relocate in Marin County, on the
other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. Thanks to the ultra-modern
process of "channeling", Michael's voice still finds its way to the
bandstand and rises in all its stentorian splendor to fill at least the
audio portion of the void created by the absence of two of the band's
Miller Quartet is:
For a sampling of one
performance go to PMQ on You Tube
and please feel free to post
Also, look for our forthcoming album of original compositions arranged in
typical PMQ fashion, "SNARF'S UP!" Sometime in the early months of 2014.

CAIRO GOSPEL SONG WRITER/SINGER RECORDING AT H.E.S.
Hayden is a man with a story to tell . . . and he tells it
eloquently! He speaks from his heart. That's the only sure
way to touch people where their defenses are the strongest. If
could see some of the biggest and baddest watching and listening to Rob
sing his gospel music as though they were infants once again, crying in
their mothers' arms,
their faces distorted in the revelation that sorrow can be the portal
to enlightenment and joy. When Robert sings gospel songs, they
compositions which turn the former despair of his life into an ode to
the joy of being reborn via his association with the Christian
Community, particularly through the Times Square Church. He
plans to complete a full album of his material and market it through
the internet as a conduit for digital download and mail order
CDs. He is also about to embark on a tour of churches up and down
the East Coast. For information on booking Robert or obtaining
his music, send an email to us. Robert along with the staff at H.E.S. will be happy to help you!
CHATHAM BASED HIP HOP ARTIST WORKING WITH PAUL ON MATERIAL FOR NEW ALBUM
so often somebody shows up and makes you sit up, NO, I mean STAND UP
and take notice! It was a stroke of luck when Franco Spoto called
me a few weeks back and said in the voice he uses when he wants you to
listen (I'd say it's somewhere between Joe Pesci, Federico Fellini .
. . hmmm . . . and maybe, just maybe Marlon Brando as Don Corleone), "Listen! I want
to send somebody special over to your studio!" Well I hear that often enough,
but I reminded myself that the early bird catches the worm, and the
negative attitude catches nothing at all! I said, "Sure Frank.
Send him over! Yeah, I know. One day you will come to me
and ask for a favor. . . ." When the guy he told me about showed
up, all I could say was , "This
is beyond good!" Rapper
C. Harley is preparing to complete an album of original material to
release concurrent with a string of local gigs starting with an
appearance at the Peint O Gwrw's "open mike night". They're
always on the first Saturday of every month. We'll let
you know when. Look out for C. Harley,
a force to be reckoned with in the coming years! With Paul's
solid grounding in the old school of recording and rock 'n' roll, C.
formed a working relationship with a producer who can show him the
light at the end of the tunnel. For more info on C. Harley and
where to go to hear him, just contact us at H.E.S.
