Sometimes it''s just time to turn around and go the other way. That''s just what Mark “DryCappuccinoGuy” McKinney did. After years of raising a family and and working hard making other people money. He found himself alone and without direction. Looking to his past for inspiration he discovered music again. Over the past few years, he has been working on his dream and has never felt better. It all started with an Idea to someday write a musical. With a little help, and a lot of patience. Mark purchased instruments, recording equipment and started construction of a small but effective home studio. With a lot of studying and quite a bit of help, He was able to begin recording in January of 2010. The resulting single “Livin It Up (In My Mid Life Crisis)” Is the first, but definitely not the last of many projects to come.
The idea was to start with a couple of songs. He started with a chart written and orchestrated entirely on computer. The easiest first. Mark was able to enlist the talent of some of the D.C. areas talented rising stars as well as experienced veterans to complete the songs. But despite being more complex, “Livin It Up” took on a life of its own. The musicians enthusiasm for catchy melody and infectious rhythm took over and it finished first. It turned out to be a significant technical challenge that was a tremendous learning experience.
Things continue to grow and evolve as Drycappuccino Entertainment, LLC now takes on the the face of a record company. This instrumental version grew out of the distinctive energy each artist added to the recording. Walter Tates Jr.''s saxophone artistry truly brings this performance to life.
