The other night I ran into Max Schwartz at The Monkey House where I had the pleasure of chatting with him about the local scene, young business ventures, social networking sites, and of course, The Jazz Guys.
Max shared with me that all music recorded by The Jazz Guys is available free to download online, a fact I had not previously been aware of. It makes sense, though. Free music is a great way to build a solid fan base. A fan base that will buy tickets to your shows, and in turn support your tour efforts.
Any other local acts have their full recordings available for download?
And oh yeah, Happy New Year!
I'll be celebrating back at The Monkey (no surprise there) where guests are encouraged to bring their own vinyl to contribute to a low key New Years. If you're looking for something a little more... raging... there's plenty going on around town; Chuch and Bad Suit at Nectar's, Grace Potter and Lowell Thompson at Higher Ground, and The Bean's New Year's Eve Variety Ball at The Radio Bean.
So what are your New Year's Resolutions?
