Retrospective Memory Loss w/ Possible Causes from Drug/Alcohol Abuse, Transient Ischemic Attack , or Traumatic Brain Injury : in other words...Who the Hell am I and how did I get these damn tattoos?!

I joined this site after doing some random Google searches for people I used to know in Broad Ripple 1984-2001. One name that caught my eye in my searches was Julie Bowers. We weren’t friends per se but traveled in the same circles for a time. As I try to piece together my memories I see the analogy of this site as a family tree is quite accurate.  I still see connections between people I hung out with in a 6 degrees of separation kind of way. I knew so and so who dated this girl who was the…

MFT Session Hiatus

In February of 2012 I began inviting bands to come into my studio to record a live 5-song performance for Musical Family Tree. I have been volunteering my time and resources to helping document local music in the hopes that it will somehow help to preserve part of America's musical heritage. One of the reasons I wanted to offer these sessions to bands for free was because I didn't want money/capital to the be a…

Listen to these! (you won't be sorry, or maybe you will--I have no idea honestly, it really depends on conditions that are beyond my control and outside the realm of my knowledge))

Horns, Bones, Thuds.

Looking for a trumpeter, trombonist and bassist (electric or upright or both). Musical points of reference: New Orleans, pre-Bop jazz, non-SRV blues; not married to any tradition or sound, would prefer that to develop organically and collectively. The purpose of this band is to back a phenomenally talented female singer--standards, traditional songs and originals. Can't promise fame, fortune or opening slots for the Justin Bieber tour, but I can offer the opportunity to work with passionate…
