It is an unofficial joke in the family that Patty is the rain goddess, Scotty is a tornado, and Melissa, well, we all hope the forecast is for sunny skies. Sooo, Buckets of Rain seemed like a good choice. Dylan is one of the best sonwriters ever, and having Tony Garnier on the bass anchored this groove through deep waters. “Do it for you. Honey Baby, can’t you tell”
“Buckets of Rain” was recorded during the June 7, 2009 performance by the Dysfunctional Family Jazz Band (DFJB) at New York’s celebrated music venue the Rodeo Bar. The band includes Patty Carpenter and Melissa Shetler on vocals, Scott Shetler on mandolin, Tony Garnier on bass, Paul Sullivan on guitar, and Russ Meissner on drums.
The DFJB’s new album “Come Over” brings the band into the studio for its first album of entirely original music. Carpenter teamed up with her long time friend and writing partner, poet Verandah Porche, to craft their life into song. The resulting album muses on the ups and downs of living – from raising children and barns, to losses, lovers and friends.
