"Mike, your playing is incredible, right in the pocket, I'm proud of you ...Keep on Pushing, Straight Ahead... Thanks for the appreciation and where you are coming from."
Billy Cox - Bassist for the Jimi Hendrix Experience
"Mike Pachelli productions most certainly delivers! He is highly professional in every aspect of recording, producing, mixing and mastering. Mike will deliver a recording that any artist, songwriter, or band would be proud of. In fact, he'll create a masterful end product that may be well above your highest expectations. Mike Pachelli is a top notch producer, engineer and guitarist who will bring each artist excellent results through his more than capable ears and hands. I suggest you give him a call as soon as you have your bucks in a row."
PHIL KEAGGY - Veteran guitarist of the Boomer Generation
"Mike Pachelli is a true musician. He is a guitarist whose musical understanding and comprehension go much deeper. I've asked Mike to record quite different styles (electric and acoustic) and he always provides more than I hoped. It's a pleasure to work with a man who still loves music. His passion and creativity come through on each track. (He's a really nice guy, too!)."
DAVID HARRIS - Los Angeles Producer (Micky Dolenz, Joe Williams)
"The debut release from Warren Cuccurullo's new band Chicanery is a densely packed, tightrope-walk of sound that demanded precision and excellence in post-production and mastering. We also had a very short time frame with which to work. Mike Pachelli and Fullblast Recordings pulled it all off with gusto.
With his background as a long-time member of Duran Duran, and legendary work with Frank Zappa and Missing Persons, Warren's work always draws attention, and the album Chicanery (mastered at Fullblast Recordings) is the subject of a Rolling Stone interview this week."
DEAN CAPONE - CEO dPulse Recordings
"I've had the pleasure of working with Mike Pachelli for several years and he has helped to 'birth' some of the best music of my career. Mike is an insightful producer and a brilliant engineer with a work ethic second to none. These gifts, combined with his excellent skills as a multifaceted musician make him a Tour de Force. I simply can't say enough about this guy!"
RANDY STONEHILL - Pioneer of CCM
"WHAT a BLAST! Working with Mike Pachelli at Fullblast Recordings. I've known Mike as a serious professional musician for more years than I care to grasp. My first encounter was Mike as the producer of a groundbreaking album. His input, his prowess, his ear, and technical skill was excellent then and that edge has continued to sharpen with the whetstone of time. Now with the tools of modern recording in his hands, the cutting edge is even more acute.
Like a highly skilled surgeon, Mike took my tracks and blended the vocals into a recording I'm not only pleased to share, but eager to promote through audio media channels around the world.
Don't hesitate, have your own BLAST at Fullblast Recordings!"
