|As an "up and coming" band on Long Island, we are pleased that we are now receiving a regular flow and mail and e-mail from fans and interested parties. To us, this is clearly a sign that the band is gaining momentum and popularity. We thought it would be interesting to share with you some of the letters and e-mails we've received recently. ______________________________________ April 13, 2004 Dear Mr. Rubinson: Thank you for taking the time to meet with me during the break in your gig last week regarding the position of kazoo player with your band, The Outliers. I thought our discussion was very interesting and am certain that the skills I bring would be very useful for your band. I find it interesting how many blues bands simply ignore the role that kazoos can play in defining the blues sound, given the hard driving nature of the kazoo sound. In some ways, I feel that kazoos have received a bad rap in the music biz. Hopefully, The Outliers are open-minded and visionary and can see and hear the value of a kazoo player. I look forward to hearing from you. Best regards, Wally Spitblower Accomplished Kazooist ______________________________________ (Received via e-mail, January 25, 2004) From: firstname.lastname@example.org Sent: Friday, January 23, 2004 12:50PM To: email@example.com Subject: RE: REMINDER: The Outliers Ride Again... Hey, take me off your e-mail list, would you? I never signed up for this crap, and now I keep getting these annoying e-mails. I live in Milwaukee, have never been to Long Island, and have certainly never heard of the Outliers. ______________________________________ (Received via e-mail, March 15, 2004) From: firstname.lastname@example.org Sent: Monday, March 15, 2004 9:08AM To: email@example.com Subject: Saturday Night's gig I saw you guys at The Blue Parrot Sat night - really loved the band...I'm really writing because I lost a gold broach while I was at your show and was wondering if any one in the band might have seen it...or took it...that would really suck if you did...and if you did, I WANT IT BACK! OTHERWISE, I'M CALLING THE COPS...it was really special to me and I find it appalling that one of you would do that...geez...you haven't heard the end of this... ______________________________________ December 12, 2003 Dear Outliers: I came across your bane while searching for local talent on Long Island. I represent LI Talent, a local firm specializing in finding and assisting local bands in gaining publicity and booking quality. I am extremely impressed with The Outliers (you guys are almost as good as the Electric Dudes) and see great potential for your band. We would like to engage you in an employment contract to retain your services. For this privilege, we are prepared to offer you a great deal of $10,000 per month (at minimum). I know it's hard to believe, but we will work closely with you to further establish your band, and it will only cost you $10,000 per month. As the Director of Contracts, I will be please to discuss this arragement further. Best regards, Lou Pole Director of Contracts ______________________________________ (Received via e-mail, November 03, 2003) From: firstname.lastname@example.org Sent: Monday, November 3, 2004 8:16PM To: email@example.com Subject: RE: REMINDER: The Outliers Ride Again... Please delete me from your list...you and your band sucks! ______________________________________ April 10, 2003 Dear Joel: I have listened to the CD you provided and think that The Outliers would be a perfect band for our "Screw The Lawyers" festival. We're glad that your band has had similar unpleasant experiences with lawyers and generally hold them in the same disregard as we do. Of course, we do need to sign some papers before we proceed with our discussion regarding a reasonable fee for the band. Our counsel, Screwed, High & Low, will be contacting you shortly about setting up a meeting so that we can agree to mutually beneficial terms. Regards, Les Ismore Contracts, Disclaimers and other Mumbo-Jumbo to Confuse you Into Submission||________________________________________________|
