R.I.P. Fats Domino

Posted on Wednesday November 01, 2017

To recognize the recent passing of legend Fats Domino, Riverboat is re-releasing the Red Boot version of one of his most recognizable hits:

November Releases

Posted on Thursday October 19, 2017

Our November releases include three songs from the classic Red Boot library, and three new patters:

We've also added some Christmas-themed alternate vocals to a couple of our previous releases. As always, if you've already purchased the title and would like the new vocal, contact Bob Elling.

RIV 762 - Mr. Sandman, part of the 2018 Gold Package, has a "Mr. Santa" vocal by Silver Sounds Music's Jack O'Leary. It also has an instrumental track enhanced with sleigh bells and other Christmas sounds.

RIV 557 - Summer Sounds now has a "Christmas Sounds" vocal by Lawrence Johnstone. There's an extra track enhanced with bell sound effects and hints of other Christmas songs; this is included as a split track with the main music on the left channel and the enhancements on the right channel so that you can dial them in and out as you wish.

Don't forget to look at our Christmas Mini-Package of 6 songs as well. We released that at the beginning of the month.

As always, be sure to visit our friends at ESP and Silver Sounds!

Christmas 2017 Package

Posted on Tuesday October 03, 2017

Riverboat is trying a new concept. Instead of releasing one large music package each year (with a large price), we're going to try releasing several smaller packages (with smaller prices) at various times throughout the year. Some may be seasonally-themed, as our first one is. We're calling these "mini-packages," and you'll notice on the website that our "Gold" page has been renamed to "Packages" to better describe what's on there.

We're starting this month with our Christmas 2017 package of six songs (3 patters and 3 singing calls) for $30. As with the 2018 Gold package that we released about a month ago, you can buy single titles from the package for $10 apiece, or the full set of six for $30. The songs in the package are:

Each singing call includes international vocals (and cuesheets) for our overseas friends. Check them out on our Packages page

As always, be sure to visit our friends at ESP and Silver Sounds and check out their newest releases!

October Releases

Posted on Thursday September 14, 2017

This month, we have three songs from the 2017 Gold Package making their debuts as singles, plus two songs from the classic Red Boot library and three new patters:

Also, keep in mind that our 2018 Gold Package came out just a few weeks back - 30 new songs for $125. And this year, you can buy single titles out of the package for $10 each!

As always, be sure to visit our friends at ESP and Silver Sounds!

2018 Gold Package

Posted on Sunday August 27, 2017

In past years, we've introduced our new Gold package in November. However, this year the 2018 Riverboat Gold package is out NOW, before Labor Day!

We have 30 new songs, 5 patters and 25 singing calls, for $125. They range from classic standards to selections from recent motion pictures, including songs originally performed by Bobby Vinton, Glen Campbell, Merle Haggard, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Gordon Lightfoot and numerous others. And, in addition to our staff callers and regular Japanese contributors, we have vocals provided by ESP's Elmer Sheffield, Tom Miller and Bill Harrison, Royal's Tony Oxendine and Joe Saltel, and Steve Edlund from British Columbia, Canada.

NEW THIS YEAR: We're making it possible to buy single titles out of the package. Single Gold titles will be $10 each.
