June News: Summer Workshop and Zubatto in the Park
Happy June Everyone! Or (if you are in Seattle), Happy Junuary. Hopefully it will be Summer here before it is Winter again.
The big news is that I'm working on preparations for Zubatto Syndicate to go into the studio later this year and make our very first album. As you might imagine, coordinating such an endeavor with a 12-piece band is a little complicated. There will be much more about the recording process next month, but I'm really excited to get this music down and out there to all of you.
In the meantime, there is still plenty of excitement going on.
** Workshop! **
If you are in the Seattle area, I'm going to be giving a workshop on composing, harmony, theory, and who-knows-what-else. It's going to be very hands-on and interactive, with an emphasis on participants' own projects. If you are interested, or know someone who might want to further their musical craft, you can read more here:
The day/time is not set in stone, so get in touch if you'd like to hear more but don't like the scheduling. If this works out, I'm hoping to do more of these, maybe online with Ustream or something similar.
** Zubatto in the Park (like Shakespeare, only louder) **
Also for Seattle folks: Zubatto will be playing on July 17th at Cal Anderson Park, as part of the Sounds Outside Festival. We play at 4pm, but there will be great music all day, so come check it out. I hear it might be sunny too.
** Zubatto Syndicate on Facebook **
Zubatto has a Facebook page which you can like or be a fan of or completely ignore. Right now, there isn't much happening, but it should be hopping soon. Jump on board.
** Some quick hits **

That's it for June! See you back here next month.
