One thought on “The Bubbadinos | Ready As We’ll Ever Be | Zerx

  1. At the very first Bubbadinos recording session, the very first song we recorded (with no rehearsal) was “Wade in the Water”. After we played the song, Mark asked the engineer (Manny), to play it back, which he did. After the playback a hush fell over the room, and then Ken (Keppeler) said “Well, there goes my credibility as a folk musician.”
