This One's for You
HISTORY OF THE BAND.... Back in the early nineties a small group of musicians gathered weekly at the Old State Tavern in Media Pennsylvania to listen to various live bands. By chance, one of the patrons was Randy Pittman who first met Joe McCormick. Randy asked Joe if he knew anyone who played bass like Paul McCartney. Joe replied 'Sure! I do!' Well, they ended up in an old dusty machine shop and started jamming. The original songs that Randy played sounded great with Joe's bass lines but not quite complete-they were looking for something special... One night Randy and Joe went to see some friends and another band called 'Coupe de Ville'. Randy and Joe agreed that the drummer and lead guitar player would add a lot to their sound. At that point they asked Ed to join in on drums and Chris to play lead guitar. At another chance meeting Joe and Randy met Charlie Thompson and found out that he played keyboard so they asked him to come down and join 'One Shot Deal'. The band was now complete. The sound seemed to take on a life of it's own-- no one told anyone else what to play but it all fit together! The next step was to find a studio to record the tunes and they found Four Star Studios and met engineers and fellow musicians Bob Freed and Rich Bomberowitch. Besides doing an excellent job on the recording, Bob Freed played piano solo on 'It's Not Right' and Rich laid down keys on 'The Landlord', 'Slave Generation', 'This One's For You' and 'Cold Hearted Woman'. After ten years of working and reworking the music the band is proud to present the results of their efforts. The philosophy of the band is to do what you love to do no matter how long it takes since life is just a 'ONE SHOT DEAL'!!!
