THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG THAT HAS TOUCHED MY HEART AND CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER.

SHINE ON YOU

I wrote "SHINE ON YOU" for a dear friend of mine.  She was a young mom, named Tresa Phillips, had 4 children, and was very unselfish and supportive of my career. I often marveled at how well she juggled her domestic life with her songwriting.  Suffice it to say, she was a wonderful friend and and a beautiful person.  She was stricken with cancer at such an early age and was gone within months.  I sat down the day before she died and wrote the song in one draft, words and melody.  I'm sure it was a gift from her and God. I truly believed that if everyone she touched in her short life would give back some light to her, that she would make it. It was very sad.

About Eddie's Songs!

I wrote like 80 songs in 5 years for us and we did get to record most of them.  I love writing swing, as well as pop, country...well, you name it.  If I feel it I write it.  The most famous singer that has cut one of my songs is Bobby Vinton.  I'm still looking for that monster smash that I can retire on..(ain't we all!!)  I've had several recordings of Shine on You.  I enjoy them all.

PRESS REVIEWS!

Read some of the reviews this talented artist and his band has received for their music!


Live Show Reviews

"...they manage to put a modern spin on a timeless style by emphasizing the rapturous delight of the music's rhythm and harmony.... and tap into the vibe with talent and intoxicating verve."

-- Michael McCall, Nashville Scene

"...more fun than a food fight at an Italian restaurant. A mix of clever songwriting, tight harmonies and excellent musicianship make these guys one of our new faves."

Bluebird Cafe News

"These guys have terrific vocals as they play nothing but original tunes, and have one of the best rhythm sections in town. Go see them soon--and wear your dancing shoes."

Charles Earle, In Review


The Amplifier

"With Mecyssne being the final performer at Henry's that night, I cruised across the street to Wolfy's to catch one of this reviewer's favorite local acts; Badabing Badaboom.

Badabing Badaboom has built a rabid local following in Nashville playing a decidedly un-southern style of music. Taking the stage after C.O.O., Bandleader/guitarist/part-time vocalist Eddie Mugavero (a common southern name, no?) lead his ragtag group through a set of big band-era jazz tunes with a decidedly uptown feel. Augmented by trumpet and fiddle, and fronted by a talented vocal duo reminiscent of the Andrews Sisters, the group teaches the town of twang how to swing. Being originally from the Chicago era, this reviewers personal favorite tune of theirs is called "That's What I like About The North." I can't see them landing a record deal out of an NEA Showcase, but to any rock weary A&R due who might have been in attendance, this could have been the most enjoyable show he or she saw all week."

The Tennessean
By Rick de Yampert

When BadaBing BadaBoom sings "Shake hands and come out swinging," the band isn't talking about fisticuffs. They're talking swing, as music, as in Duke Ellington's "it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing." But the Nashville group doesn't need any help from the Duke. The Badas play original, but very 1940s-sounding, swing music, with a line-up that includes guitar, trumpet, upright bass, viola, "blonde vocals" and "brunette vocals."

Another line from the band goes "head downtown for a little BadaBinging." We'd change that lyric a bit--make it "head downtown for a *lot* of BadaBinging.

Is there a more ebullient club band in Nashville than BadaBing BadaBoom? Offering sweetly tempered swing packed with wit and sass, the seven-piece band pits trumpet and fiddle solos against a sprightly rhythm section of electric guitar, acoustic bass, and brush percussion. But the real starts of the show are Eddie Mugavero's sharply tuned, timeless songs and the burnished, bell-like notes of singers Rebecca Sayre and Maureen Mohr, who whine both as soloists and as jazzy harmonizers.

Nashville Scene
Michael McCall

BadaBing BadaBoom's music is refreshing partly because it's so out-of-step with current trends. The local group plays vibrant swing tunes that lean more toward the vocals harmonies of the Andrews Sisters than toward the big-band jive of Count Basie. On its recent cassette of four bright Christmas originals, all written by bandleader/guitarist Eddie Mugavero, BadaBing BadaBoom sounds light, sparse, and playful. Mugavero writes in colorful, distinct images, and his words are as snappy as the dialogue from a classic Hollywood comedy. Vocalists Maureen Mohr and Rebecca Sayre deliver the songs with just the right mix of rhythmic sass and class, while trumpeter bob Dellaposta and fiddler Stephan Dudash offer inventive solos without crossing over into self-indulgence.

THEIR CD'S


"Listening to this album gives every music lover something... like swing, boogie, western swing, pop/jazz swing. The vocalists really stand out on this album. Rebecca Sayre and Maureen Mohr really give this band a shining edge."

Chuck Chellman, Jazz & Blues News

This CD by BadaBing BadaBoom is a 14 - original song offering that takes the "neo-swing" movement to a new level. Imagine a band with the Andrews Sisters trading lead vocals with Commander Cody; Stephane Grappelli trading solos with Louis Armstrong...well, you get the picture! And when your feet get too tired to dance, relax with a martini and have a listen to lyrics that will make you smile, reminisce, and fall in love over and over again. So leave your fedora with the hat check girl... If you're JONESIN' TO SWING, you've come to the right place!!!

Delightful. Think up-to-date Andrews Sisters, complete with shimmying shoulderpads and saucy jazzbo attitude. Fiddle, trumpet and drumkit swing big time. Love, love, love this. Album is called "Volume II." You need this music in your life.

Robert K. Oermann, Music Row Magazine


Letter to Santa:
Dear Elvis of Elves,
Silent Night. Jingle Bells. Rudolph, Frosty, et al. Classics, yes, but I yearn for the new. My family's the same, my gifts are the same, my tree looks the same...hell, I can't tell one Christmas from the next. If only I could hear some different music this year, Grandma in her nightie would be easier to take
