Ben LaMar Gay's sonic recreation of his youthful imagination about what kind of music might be happening inside East of the Ryan - a hotel ballroom near his childhood home on the Southside of Chicago that hosted Steppin' nights and the occasional Player's Ball.


released August 29, 2019

Composed by Ben LaMar Gay.

Recorded one night in 2014 in the garage of Ruben's Palace by Tommaso Moretti, JayVe Montgomery, Ed Bornstein, and Ben LaMar Gay. "There was so much gear and so many instruments set up I don't even know where to begin with who played what."

Mastered by David Allen.

Cover Photo & Design by Jesse Ponkamo.
