Last year's Banding Together Benefit Webathon for the Spondylitis Association Of America had over 70 acts. So far this year we have over 50 acts signed up. Musicians interested in helping the cause should read "Lazlo's Corner" below. Thanks!


This Saturday, August 15th, is the next Free Summer Concert Series @ Espresso Joe's!

There is no better place to see music outdoors this summer than outside Espresso Joe's overlooking the water and the sunset (weather permitting. In case of rain the show is moved inside Espresso Joe's).

This is an opportunity to see some great electric bands, in a lovely outdoor environment!

This month's show features The Extras Inc., Afraid Brigade, and Happy Joe

The show is free, all ages, and starts at 7pm sharp.

Espresso Joe's is at 50 West Front Street, in Keyport, NJ.

Lazlo’s Corner

Fire in the studio! White powder everywhere on the floor!

Sounds so rock & roll doesn't it?

Truth is my paper shredder caught fire (don't ask how, all I know is I was shredding paper, it made a loud "pop" and the shredding bin came out on fire). Luckily I was able to put the fire out without any further fire damage.

I did inhale a lot of smoke in the minute it took me to put the fire out. I'm going to be fine, but still a week later coughing a lot, have a sore throat, and don't have my full voice back. How do smokers do this???

Oh, the white powder...baking soda, one of several things I've tried to remove the smoke smell from the studio.

No longer sounds so rock & roll, does it?


Banding Together - webathon benefit for the Spondylitis Association Of America, will be broadcast on October 16th-18th.

As many of you already know, this is a very personal benefit for me, because my wife suffers from Ankylosing Spondylitis. This is also a big deal every year that not only gets tons of listeners from around the world, but also raises a lot of money for a good cause.

You can read more about the webathon, spondylitis, and how you can help the cause, here:
