If you’ve ever fantasized about putting together a band and touring the open road…this collection of stories might just make you rethink that idea!

Often humorous and sometimes scary, anyone who has gigged can relate to at least one of these tales.

Catching Up

music.jpgCatching Up:  Connecting with Great 21st Century Music by Jim Fusilli

Don’t be a Gee Bee (generationally biased). Too often we are stuck in a mode and only like music from our past, declaring “new” music as inferior. You can find music to treasure from any era. With the record companies no longer in control of what we get to hear, there are many options available to us to listen to and appreciate new music, and the author presents several great examples from the past two decades. You are bound to find something you like, or at least a new direction to explore.
