We want to welcome Manzanita Bluegrass, who has also joined S&S as a “Listed” band. S&S will be assisting Manzanita by creating a Press Kit for the band. S&S is also creating a Press Kit for the Greg Morton Band. The Sonoran Dogs are active building their Press Kit. My first priority is creating these Press Kits to satisfy the Green Valley Recreations (GVR) requirements and to get them submitted to GVR. Then the Press Kits I’m working-on will be fine-tuned for distribution to the festivals and various quality Venues. Having a good Press Kit is a must for a serious Band.
BTW, if you haven’t heard, the Partnership that will be staging the 2013 Marana Bluegrass Festival will have the Arizona Bluegrass Assoc. (ABA) as a new partner. The ABA is joining the Town of Marana, the Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance (SAACA) and the Desert Bluegrass Assoc. (DBA). The ABA and DBA will select the bands equally from their respective areas.
