Hope you're all enjoying the Summer. . .The ol' Blancos boys and myself are super duper busy, so not a whole lot of jazz playing to report. . .However
I've finally stepped into the millenium and I've stepped up my internet marketing just a touch!
Below are links to all the new places you can find me,
Furthermore, as you'll see, the networking comes in to play as MySpace users become each other's "friends" by making a simple request. So you'll see both fans and music industry types alike. On my page, you can see my friends, and by clicking on them, their own pages, and then their friends, and their friends, etc., etc. ALSO, I can post the dates of my shows there, so that's the best place to find where I/we will be playing! (Presently posted: solo gigs at Phoebe's and an Intention gig at Ithaca's ABC Cafe!)
We're now registered at CD Baby! This is an extremely cool website, especially for unsigned/independent bands/musicians. Not only do they help in distribution by making our CD's available via internet and thousands of physical stores everywhere, but they also help with the possibility of licencing material to those looking for original music and give tons of great, free marketing tips to all of us artist/non-business-oriented types.
We're now registered at Garageband.com. Another very cool spot, this is a review site. Anyone is allowed to review the music there in a blindfolded fashion. One finds reviews from AROUND THE WORLD! There are all kinds of indie/unsigned musicians/bands there, and for real, anyone is allowed to review. There are many categories from which to choose!
CD's are also available for sale there, but the networking is truly worldwide.
The Intention was the Featured Artist of the Month of June on 570WSYR on the AM dial, and also at their website: Newsradio 570 WSYR Syracuse
Local jazz on the radio (kinda hard to believe really. . .)
