Hello ALL,
Born and Bread NYer, Bellport LI. Just started building my first CBG's. Can't wait to start playing it.

I'd love to play in a NYC-CBG show, if there ever is one.
As a simpleton country-bumpkin upstater, I'm always impressed by the size of them thar buildings in Manhatten . . . and the amount of hay a guy could stack in 'em.

Grew up in NY (Staten Island) and moved to NJ.
Do I count? Probably.

So - My band belongs to the Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Foundation
http://www.jsjbf.org
There's approx 100 bands in it. We do fundraisers, festivals, etc. We also have annual playoffs, the winner representing NJ in the International Blues Competition in Memphis. Lots of fun - we've been finalists several times.
I think it would be a blast to introduce CBG to these folks. They have a monthly get-together at a bar with a pretty big stage. Are any of you guys (besides Shane - it's obvious) players?

New Jersey here, let's make something happen!
