April 2017 Newsletter

Opening Day for Major League Baseball is here. Well, technically yesterday was, but the first Monday in April is the one that feels like Opening Day. And it’s usually the day the college basketball season ends. At the end of April we will have the NFL draft. On and on these cycles go, and slow down when we want them to speed up, and whiz by when we want them to slow down. It’s hard to look forward to events like Opening Day unless you know what it’s like to not have that thing—in this case, baseball—for a while. But while the cycles continue, and make us appreciate said cycles, one thing does tend to remain constant—music. You can consume it whenever and however you want now. Well, within reason anyway. I won’t be breaking out my early ‘90’s boom box anytime soon.

Happy Spring everyone, and we hope you’ll take a listen to or go see some of the artists we represent. Have a great month!--Mike
