Show #038: Scooter Hanes

This is another one of those shows that has been in the works for what seems like an eternity.  I've been friends Scooter Hanes for a few years now, but it has taken all that time for the stars to align such that the timing is right to have him on the show.  Fortunately, with his demo completed and work begun a full-length CD, this has become the opportune time to give him a little promotion.

Scooter has made a name for himself on the east coast with various musical projects and a CD with his former musical partner Paul "Pabo" Dake released through Zigmo Records -- good luck finding a copy.  Here in Indiana he has been very successful playing such venues as the Whammy Bar, the Rathskellar, and recurring gigs at a couple of notable chain restaurants here in town.  Contrary to rumor, he is not the guy in the commercials.

Recently, however, he has put his efforts into his own music as the primary singer/songwriter/guitarist in the Scooter Hanes Band, and inexplicably, is actively looking to trade steady, high-paying, corporate gigs for the smaller audiences of the less-stable, less-appreciated, all-original music scene.  For that, we salute and support him.

Links referenced in the show:           

  • Scooter Hanes can be found here: MySpace | Web Site.
  • He has graciously shared tracks from his recently-completed demo with us today.  His first solo CD is in the works, and we will have a link here when it becomes available.
  • Random non-sequitor trivia: New Castle, Indiana  does indeed host the world's largest high school fieldhouse.
  • In case you hadn't heard: Yes, the Music Mill is back
  • Scooter plays, and wholeheartedly endorses Taylor Guitars.
  • Scooter is currently a staple performer at Jimmy Buffet's Cheeseburger in Paradise and occasionally Champps Americana
  • The fourth track played, Under the Mistletoe, features Lani Williams, who currently performs as a duo with Joe Hart.  You can check out their stuff here: Myspace.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
