John Vento and Nied’s Hotel Band follow the 9/11 tribute with an updated and remastered fan favorite


Nied’s Hotel Band

“We’re Just Fine” has been remastered, with newly recorded backing vocals. It follows the band’s #1 international hit on iTunes “The Day the Lady Cried”.

The track really showed off the band’s R&B roots, but it never got the expected traction. It was always a fan favorite, especially during live shows.

PITTSBURGH, PA, USA, March 15, 2022 / — Music veteran John Vento and his longtime blue-collar rock mates Nied’s Hotel Band have been releasing their impressive catalog of music since 2004, when Vento and Buddy Hall released “Nied’s Hotel Archives” and “Nied’s Hotel in 2007.” Three more feature films would follow, including 2007’s “The Way That You Roll,” 2014’s “One Night Stand,” and the 2020 compilation, “Nied’s Hotel 2.0.” The latter two included the original version of the favorite from fans, “We’re Just Fine.” Now, Vento and company have updated the track with newly recorded backing vocals and a clean new remaster.

On March 18, 2022, MTS Records will release the new version of “We’re Just Fine” by Nied’s Hotel Band. The song was written by John Vento and Tim Hadley, with production by Hadley and Klint Macro, and additional production by David Granati. This is the sequel to the band’s international hit on iTunes, the 9/11 tribute, “The Day the Lady Cried”.

“The track really showed off the band’s R&B roots, but it never got the expected traction,” Vento said. “It’s always been a fan favourite, especially at gigs. Over the past few months the band decided to dust it off a bit, add some extra background vocals and remaster the track for a new release in 2022.”

Lyrics – “We’re Fine”

You’ve been through some bad things lately
But you worked it all out
You’re headed for good times baby
And there’s no doubt

Now a brand new day, bring a brand new light
Throw that shit in the sea, leave it all behind
Unlock the love in your heart, just let it shine
Sing it to the world, you’re fine

you’re fine now baby
Alright now baby

Most people said we weren’t gonna make it
But we proved them all wrong
They hit us hard, then they tried to break us
But our love was way too strong

It looked bad in the eye of the storm
Winds of might and power wanted to hurt you
By the love of great friends we stood arm in arm
Sing it to the world, you’re fine

you’re fine now baby
Alright now baby

I know there are nights you feel so lonely girl
We live two separate lives
But remember those nights when we were hand in hand
I’ll always be by your side, baby I’m your man

I’ll never let you down, I’ll take a stand

Sing to the world that we’re fine

We are well
Were fine now baby
We are well
