The VP Chronicles

We recently signed with agent Ed Keane of Ed Keane Associates. Ed is a great guy and an accomplished agent with three Grammy Award winning artists. We are proud to be a part of his stable of artists. Check out www.edkeane.com. We have also acquired the services of manager Sandra Dacosta. Sandra is the former head of artist development for SONY music and according to an article written in the New York Beacon magazine "when Sandra Dacosta calls you take her call because anything she is working with is a hot property." They are currently shopping the band in LA to major record labels and trying to get us out on tour with headlining artists. Stay tuned! Sandra got us a gig at the legendary Birdland in NYC and Ed got us a showcase slot at the APAP (American Performing Arts Centers) convention in NYC in January. Our Birdland performance was webcast to the clubs 25 million viewing audience worldwide. The performance will be archived on their website for a year! Lots of exciting things in the works and we should have some significant announcements soon!
