Metal and Blues

When the sound waves emanating from Zachmann Studios aren’t carrying the sharp noises of a spinning saw or the blare of Carl’s train whistle (seriously), you can hear the music that plays almost non-stop during creation hours.

Carl's very loud whistle. It was an unexpected gift from a client, and it's rigged up in the studio with a very long pull-cord so they can stand outside when it goes off.

Jeff has a radio and a computer hooked up to a speaker system in the studio that pumps out music hour after hour and keeps things upbeat. He likes all kinds of music, but is especially into blues. His favorite artists of the musical variety range from B.B. King to Muddy Waters to ZZ Top. In fact, Sharp Dressed Man is his no. 1 pick for best song (currently). When I asked him what song he liked best, he had to think for a minute to remember the name of it. He landed on the words “well-dressed man”, which was close enough for me, but his wife Deb heard the words as “weld dressed man”. He couldn’t help but laugh at that. If there was a song about a weld dressed man, I think it would be very appropriate to hear over the speaker in Zachmann Studios.
