Hey everyone, what's up. I'm Raul, and John (El Presidente) has chosen to take us in a new and exciting direction as a whole in 2012. He has a new location for performance entertainers that want to feel the true environment of performing;a stage, lighting, mics, main stage, etc If you're tired of
not performing, then you'll be happy to partake in what this private facility has to offer. Five individuals attended the February meeting at the 2004 S Kostner, Chicago Il location.We had a drummer (Tony G), guitarist/bagpiper (John L), bassist (Henry G), pianist (Raul V), and vocalist (Clarance G). (For the record, all musicians sang, also) We played 'till 10 pm. It was CRAZY!!! The music went from Irish & Scottish traditional songs to Otis Redings, Johnny Cash, Sam Cooke, The Doors, Bill Whithers, Eddie Floyd,
Hall & Oates, Malo, Santana, The Stylistics, Main Ingredient, Spinners, Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose, Blues Brothers, CRC; believe me when I say this was just the tip of the iceberg. John's new found facility was established by Henry Gardunio (businessman/published songwriter/musician) who's main objective is simple: create a professional forum where serious entertainers can meet, network, and perform. You owe it to yourself to check out John's new envision for the "Collective." YOU'RE GONNA LOVE IT!!!
