The below are people who are kind enough to link to my website.

Brad and I played with the group Five. He is an awesome tenor sax player and flutist, and an accomplished music educator.
The big-haired bass-spankin' film-makin' kung fu master himself.
Joe Mishkin is an entertainer and balloon man extraordinaire...not your average Joe! He also plays flute and percussion in the Cosmic Ozzies, a band with whom I play from time to time. He's got a great website and sends out fun newsletters, so be sure to get on his email list!

Quit Smoking Community -- I find cigarettes to be among the most irritating things, and for almost 20 years I was forced to be in rooms with them in order to be around live music. SO glad we live in a civilized age now! Still, even at outdoor festivals they can get really annoying... Please quit! Furthermore, I find it sadly ironic that anti-corporate revolutionary types tend to smoke. How many billions of dollars a year sent to those few companies?? -- I don't have experience with this organization, but I am a recovered alcoholic and support the kind of work they are doing. This seems like a good resource.
