The Making of a Record featuring The Fabulous Thunderbirds
Live Webcast -- February 16th, 9:00 PM EST / 6:00 PM PST!

"One Night in LA," a series of live, in-studio events, introduces a bold, new
concept to the tradition of live concert recordings. Debuting February 16th,
with the first-ever, live album from The Fabulous Thunderbirds, this
revolutionary concept in music brings together the excitement of a two-hour
live concert and a state-of-the-art recording studio...literally. With an
invitation-only audience of 100, and countless other participants via a live
Web cast provided by Microsoft Windows Media player, "One Night in LA" will
allow the audience a behind-the-scenes peak at the actual recording process.

"One Night in LA" promises to capture more than just blistering performances.
Dave Adelson, Editor of HITS Magazine and Music Editor for E! News Daily,
will host the evening's events. Through interviews with the band members,
recording engineers, fans and celebrities in the audience, Dave will act as
the camera's voice allowing for a documentary style recording and video
chronicle of the event. The concept will be recorded digitally using a
state-of-the-art 96kHz/24 BITR-1 multi-track recorder supplied by Euphonix
and will be mixed to a 5.1 surround track in DTS and Meridian lossless
packing. A DVD-audio disc will be available after the event.

"One Night in LA" provides a new approach for the artist as well. By allowing
the artist to record in a controlled environment, with the technical controls
and sounds that only a studio provides and also with the feedback that a live
audience brings, the artist is essentially reaping the benefits of both

"One Night in LA" will feature the most advanced technologies available
today. The entire evening will be videotaped using multiple cameras providing
a live-switch feed for both fast and a clear viewing from the Internet. It
also provides the artist the option to broadcast their performance as a
pay-per-view event on the World Wide Web. Additionally, an email-equipped
computer will be present at the studio during the artist's performance.
Before and after their performance, the artist will have the opportunity to
read and answer fan's questions and comments, providing the fans and artists
a rare opportunity to interact during a recording session.

"One Night in LA" will align with mp3 to provide content for streaming at the
mp3 website.

"One Night in LA" will launch in Los Angeles, the home of the music industry.
