Thank you!

Who would have thought that ten years into doing Banding Together benefits for the Spondylitis Association Of America that we would break our donation record!

I can't thank all of you enough for coming out to the shows (some of you to multiple shows) and donating the cause.

Big thanks to everyone who played the shows, helped me put the shows together, the venues that allowed us to do benefits there, and the musicians who donated new songs to this year's compilation!

Incidentally, you can still download this year's compilation by making a donation to the Spondylitis Association Of America:

Now that Banding Together month is over I have a lot to catch up. Many e-mails that I didn't get to answer (sorry!), and many music updates to make to the site.

Stay tuned!
