Every year our good friend Tom Corea puts out an amazing Christmas project via his Babyfishmouth Studio.
My husband, Dennis, often plays bass (and some guitar) on many of the tunes, along with Tom DiPaolo on guitar.
Sometimes I’ll join them in the studio and once in awhile participate.
“Come on Christmas” was a really fun song that was recorded over the summer. (Vocals: Ric Pink, guitar: Tom DiPaolo, bass: Dennis Mistretta, Drums: Tom Corea). And I got to help by singing the back-up vocals! What an honor to be working amongst such great talents!
If you click on the following “Come On Christmas” you will see there are some great shots of all of us having fun in the studio. The album cover photo of Tom DiPaolo and Tom Corea was beautifully done by my very good friend, Darlene Foster (www.darlenefoster.com). It’s worth it to check out the song just to see her fabulous work!

Come On Christmas!
And here’s another one from a few years back, 2006, it’s a surf song featuring Dennis on bass guitar and rhythm, Tom DiPaolo on guitar, Tom Corea on drums, and I’m the opening spoken word vocal, “Hey, Santa, Surf’s Up!”
And finally, a surf take on this Nutcracker classic. Tom DiPaolo on guitars, Dennis Mistretta on bass and Tom Corea on drums: Dance of the Sugar Plum Scary
I always love going to the studio with Dennis. I adore music and watching a tune be put together step-by-step. Or sometimes I’ll go upstairs and hang out with Tom Corea’s wife, Carol, and have a fantastic time drinking wine and having great conversation. They also have two beautiful kids, Jessie and T.J.
We are so blessed to have such great friends and so many wonderful memories!
