So I just came back from an eye doctor appointment, an appointment that did not happen because the doctor and I were waiting for the Target Optical place to open and someone didn’t show up to do that, and I couldn’t wait any longer because I had to get this newsletter out, among other things. But truth be told, I was not even upset. It was “found time” now and as the great George Costanza once said on Seinfeld, “I’ve never had an appointment where I wanted the other guy to show up.” If you can relate to that, you most likely “get” Seinfeld….and my wife and I believe that there are two types of people—those who get Seinfeld and those who don’t…and it applies to so many aspects of life.

That’s it, I just thought everyone could use a bit of humor after what’s been a crazy month. Happy holidays to all of you and your families, and thanks for supporting the artists we represent!

Have a great month--Mike

New clients/Upcoming releases

Albatross - The music of Nashville based Albatross, (30 year old Adam Stockdale) focuses around merging simplicity and honesty. Often performed completely solo, accompanied by his astounding 'finger-picked' guitar Albatross' music is as real and honest as it comes. Like his heroes, John Martyn, Nick Drake and co. he understands that a truly great song will shine without fanciful dressing up. Albatross is readying a new album, On the Run, for release in early 2017, but is touring here and there leading up to that.

Red Wanting Blue Live at Lincoln Theater CD/DVD (December 16). It’s hard to believe this Ohio based rock band have been warriors of the road for 20 years, but they have done it and continue to do it. Well the truth is these guys put on one of the best live shows, something their extremely loyal fans know but something others who see them for the first time usually come away knowing. This combo is like a love letter from singer Scott Terry and the rest of RWB to their fans, and it will surely garner them more of them. Watch the trailer for the film here or visit
