The Chicago Cubs won the World Series on November 2nd, 2016, and you are alive, right here, right now, to bear witness. To celebrate this truly monumental occasion King Mixer hit the recording studio in October during the Series, and in a marathon 14 hour session, recorded ‘We’re Goin’ All The Way!‘ to musically will the Cubs into winning the World Series. After 108 years, the 2016 Chicago Cubs went on to do just that. This is our song about that.
Contributors to this recording include: King Mixer (all vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, bass), Matt “Nelly” Nelson (keys and synths) studio owner/engineer Craig Williams at Dr. Caw Recording, and oh yeah: Randy Antlept (Drums) has been a beer vendor at Wrigley Field for 37 years (that’s not a typo). Randy generously took part in the recording of ‘We’re Goin’ All The Way’ during his one “day off” from running beer, between Series Games 2 and 3. Randy gets the game ball.
But wait…there’s more! We have a fantastic video for the song, produced in real time as this saga unfolded (and in record time) by the talented young upstart Mr. Michael Filek, a film major Freshman at Columbia College Chicago. Mike and his crew did an outstanding job out in the field and in the editing room, all between Game 4 and Game 7. Take a look.
As the dust begins to settle from the aftermath, now is the perfect time to reflect on our recent glories. Get the track, HERE. Proceeds from downloads of this song going to Cubs Care charities. Congratulations, Chicago Cubs: World Series Champions 2016! Ok! Let’s get some runs!
