I'm behind bc on this one. Normally, I try to stay clear of negative, political stuff and just play music, but my group, Vic Daniels Quartet, played the FPM a few years ago and we got a fraction of the publicity we were promised, and we had to nag for that. We also did the Thanksgiving day race and had to beg for mention on the web site. Not only that, the music was not even remotely appreciated.
Music in the Cinci area is so under appreciated a person almost has to give it away to even be heard.
