The Geoffrey Castle Band, featuring Steve Boyce, and Jonathan Sindelman on the grand piano returns to Bake's. I'm lining up the special vocal guest right now. Last time, on Valentine's Day, we had Josephine Howell who just melted the place with her soulful R&B vocals. Would you mind if we did that again?

workshops, get in touch with me or my friends at Academic Entertainment!

You can buy tracks in either high-quality MP3 or full CD-quality WAV format that should work on any computer, music player, tablet, smartphone, or other digital device. You get music instantly—and there's no copy protection to get in your way. Some material is available exclusively from the Download Store!

I went into Deep Well Studios, solo, and recorded twenty songs in two days. Each song was captured by a four-camera video shoot as it was being recorded so people will get to see how the recording was made. One take. Every time. Disc One assembles some of the smoother tracks…
…while Disc Two features some sizzle and pyrotechnics. Still one take, live, every time! Check it out!
Geoffrey Castle combines old school R&B, funk, jazz, blues, and gospel with traditional Celtic melodies. ÝThese seven songs feature performances by Alan White (drummer for John Lennon, Yes), Ben Smith (drummer for Heart), Garey Shelton (Grammy-winning bass player) and Eric Robert (the keyboardist featured on Underhill's Angel)
More than any other CD release to date, this disc captures the flow and energy of a Castle concert—featuring Eric Robert and Darin Watkins, with guest appearances by Beth Quist, Dan Connolly, and The Gothard Sisters.
Yochido: The Way was created working directly with Yoga and Tai-Chi master Vidal Bitton, who tried out the tracks in front of an actual class—and we used his feedback to make it work exactly with the flow and pace of a yoga class. No one, to my knowledge, has ever done this. The perfect accompaniment to a workout or a drive through the mountains!
Eleven tracks that strip Geoffrey Castle to his bare essentials: a man and his violin. No guest stars, no tricks, nothing up his sleeves.
Songs that predate the commercialization of Christmas, with melodies that are 200, 300, 400…even 800 years old. An album with deep spiritual roots, and a sound that feels right now, full of inspiration and improvisation. With Eric Robert (piano) and Garey Shelton (bass).
Twelve adventurous compositions for two electric violins and a plethora of world instruments, includinga stormy rendition of Ornette Coleman's "Lonely Woman" and a funky arrangement of several traditional Irish tunes in "Farewell to Inwood." With John Schussler and the Guarneri Underground.
The selections below are some of my favorites…enjoy!
