The Black River Music & Art Fest is returning to Chester, NJ on Saturday August 18th, 2007 (rain date: Sun. Aug. 19th), and we're looking for a few good bands.

Go to now to download the band application.

The BRMAF is a FREE all day event in Chester, NJ which features some of the best local original musical acts as well as numerous visual artists displaying their work. Last year's inaugural event drew an estimated 6,000 people. Performers will not be compensated for their performance. However, all artists are welcome to sell their own merchandise at the event. Please keep in mind that we, the organizers of the event, are not getting paid, either - we are just doing this for the love of music. We can say that thousands of dollars will be spent on advertising, and we expect an even bigger turnout than last year, so it will be a good opportunity for all those who participate. More info is available inside the band application that you can download at Please download and read the application before e-mailing us questions, as many of the answers will lie within the application. Deadline for applications is March 15th.

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you rock at the Black River Music & Art Fest on August 18th!
Christopher Jones Tribute Benefit DVD

I wanted to send you all an email to let you know that the DVD Pre-Sale for the Christopher Jones Tribute Benefit has now begun!

Maggie Perotta of Sage Indie Music has completed the editing and producing of the video and has sent it in for printing and cover art. The DVD's will be mailed out in mid to late February.

All profits from the DVD sale will also benefit the Jersey Jams Fund as did the Tribute show in September to raise money for underprivelidged school districts for musical education in NJ.

Message From Lazlo

Hi Everyone,

What a week. Thanks to everyone who came out to Folk You! last Wed. (which a nasty cold sidelined me from being at), and everyone who came out to the's Free Concert Series at Buddie's Tavern last Sat. And of course, a big thanks go out to all the performers who made both shows so special.

We'll be back at Buddie's on Feb. 24th for a very special NJ Pop-Rock Fest.

As always, it will be another free show. So come out for a great evening of pop-rock!


I made lots of updates to both websites in the last few days. Both & Lazlo's Den have newly formatted main pages and band link pages. Hopefully they are neater, cleaner, and easier to find the info you are looking for.

In addition, the main page of the Lazlo's Den website, now has daily updated music news links.

Check back daily to find out all the latest music news that I've scoured from the web just for you. There is also a link to This Day In Music History, so you can find out what happened on this day, every day.
