Thank you everyone who was involved in making the February Sage Indie Music Night at Arlene's Grocery a success. Each and every band on the roster contributed something special to the evening.

Producer/Engineer, Maggie Perrotta, has branched out to reach local musicians with Sage Indie Music recording services. A recent ad in the 2004 The Aquarian Music Directory has proved beneficial for Sage business. With the downsizing of major record companies, more and more people are looking towards independent resources to get a job well done. If you are interested in doing a recording project, consider going with Sage. The rates are reasonable and the quality is top-notch professional. The Aquarian Music Directory is a tri-state area music resource and can be found at any major new stand. Visit http://www.theaquarian.com for more info.

Along with Sage Indie Music keeping her busy, Maggie Perrotta has joined forces with acoustic/hip-hop/pop/extraordinaire band, Sunday Allstars! These guys will get you off your feet and keep you grooving. The songwriting will stick in your head and the guitar hooks will keep you intrigued. Catch them playing in NYC every week on the upper east side or in the college live scene.

Sage Indie Music's release of Dee Adams & The Roadtrippers' EP "Taking My Time" has brought the band great live show opportunities as well as recent radio play. Dee Adams appeared on Rochester NY's 96.5 WCMF Radio Free Wease Morning Show with Brother Wease to promote Taking My Time. 88.9 WLUW in Chicago IL invited Dee and bassist, Jason Trtan to Saturday Morning Indie Breakfast with DJ Lois, where they performed several songs and talked about the creative process of music and songwriting. The Roadtrippers have played some of New York City's staples of live original music - Arlene's Grocery, The Lion's Den, and the legendary CBGB's. DA & RT are in the process of booking spring shows and hope to showcase in the famous SXSW music conference. Sage Indie Music and Dee Adams & The Roadtrippers are looking forward to continued success with the EP.

Maggie Perrotta is pleased to announce the addition of performing songwriter, Brian Ayers, to the roster of Sage Indie Music artists. Brian is a brilliant songwriter and performer with country/folk roots. His style is not unlike James Taylor and Paul Simon's, but has an original flare that shines through on it's own. Both as a solo performer and with his band, Blue Jimmy, Brian Ayers can be seen performing live at many upstate New York and New York City venues. Visit this link for a preview of the new SIM artist - http://BlueJimmy.com.
Keep your eyes and ears open for more outstanding music coming from Brian Ayers. He is a natural talent and Maggie Perrotta is proud to be working with him as a Sage Indie Music artist.

The target date for the evening of music is February, 2004. Any bands interested in playing, please contact maggie@sageindiemusic.com. We'll see you all in February!!
