Something New, Something Different…

There is a new site out there for those in the entertainment industry.  It is called    http://www.mysymphony.biz/   This site is different in that it allows acts looking for work to list themselves in such a way that it is made easier for clubs looking for acts to find them. Why?  They can look them up by county and state. The bands, singers, etc can post an audition video for the managers and club owners to see as well.  Artists keep their rights to material they post and BEST OF ALL, it is a FREE  service.  They can buy/sell material on there and I’m not sure how that part works because I’m not a musician, but it looks good enough to check out.

It also allows actors and such to post acting reels. At the same time, there is a social section, a section to download free programs for those who write and compose music (or to learn how to do so)…Managers can put info up if they want prospective clients to contact them too…To me, it’s a sort of one stop place to try to take care of an entertainer’s needs without having to resort to the trade papers and such as in the old days.  Anyway, do check it out and let the site owner know of any suggestions you have that might improve it for you.  I know he reads all the email and such…Take care and have a good week!

Anyone Up for a Little Bytch?

Yes…You read it correctly…I want to get my all female band going.  Here are my requirements…All members must be over 35, have been divorced at LEAST once and really don’t give a crap what other people think because they spent too much of their lives worrying over it.  They must also be comfortable with being called bytches because that will be part of our band name.  If members do have kids, the kids must think their moms are “cool” for this or they will be allowed to force said children  into servitude as our roadies–and believe me, my boys do not want to have to make a middle of the night M&M run to the store! Damned straight!

“Bytch Cassidy!”  Has a nice ring to it, I think…

Ground rules for the first album…Each song has to have the word “bitch” or a derivative of it somewhere.  The only exception will be our cover of “None of the Above” and possibly 1 more cover song.

WE must use the cartoon I drew years ago which depicted an interesting political climate in the 1970’s.  I drew it in 8th grade.  We draw straws for the art on the back cover.

General rules:  Don’t leave the toilet seat up.  Do pick up after yourself and don’t leave money on the bus! It can get ripped off!

Needed:  bass player, drummer, lead guitarist and a possible 2nd guitarist.  If you are good at reading/writing the music, that’s even better.

Management…What the hell?  Deal with that when we get to that point…

Aside from that there is a song right off the top of my head I refuse to do and that is “Fancy”.  I hate that song.  I see nothing so great about pimping out one’s own kid no matter how bad things get. Sorry.

Anyway, there is my take on it…All members must have  a good sense of humor and some dry wit working for them.   A little laughter goes a long way.   Now here’s a clip of that famous, kick ass song I’d love to cover:

None of the Above–Again…This is one of the best songs Duran Duran ever did…
