 Chris' Notes
New York City bands! If you are gigging in NYC go check out nycmusicscene and post your gigs there. My friends at NYC Music Scene also do a great podcast every Wednesday. Check it out!!


Attention Dayton Rock fans! Go see Orange Willard and see the high energy new sound they are making. They have a new album coming out (with a track with your's truly playing sax) and are leading the way in the Dayton Band Playoffs. So if you like to rock, make sure you get out and see this band thats just bustin at the seams with heat.


"I was born out of due time in the sense that by temperament and talent I should have been more suited for the life of a small Bach, living in anonymity and composing regularly for an established service and for God."
-- Igor Stravinsky on Life
