C-Nev LIVE every week with special guests! 

C-Nev and Jon Paul LIVE IN STUDIO! 

It’s time for some groove at CNev’s Place, and who better to bring it in than my Tributosaurus brother and friend Jon Paul?  That’s right, this week, JP will be joining in the fun, and what’s more, he’s coming to the studio so we can play LIVE together!  For those few who don’t know, Jon is one of the most schooled and talented bassists around, and has held down the groove for Tributosaurus for the last 18 years, but also has toured with Fareed Haque, Cuchito Valdes, and numerous other jazz luminaries, filled in for Big Star and Sleepy LaBeef when asked, and much much more.  He is also one of my very best friends, and I am just giddy that we get to hang out and jam in person, for you (and maybe for us too…).  This Thursday is going to be FUN — Don’t Miss It!

 

While we cannot currently all get together and enjoy the music in our usual communal setting, we can get together online and have a little musical fun.  Come and join Chris Neville for some songs and chat this Thursday, and each Thursday while we are waiting for the clubs to re-open, on Facebook Live OR YouTube Live.  You can stream this from your mobile device, your computer, or even your Smart TV should you be so inclined.  There will be special guests every week, so tune in and find out who!  Chris will play a variety of songs - classics, originals, and outliers - something for everyone.  Please take a second to Like and Subscribe on the YouTube channel - it helps a lot. 

Please come and interact - it helps us all to be together, even online.  We hope you can join.

·On the latest GOOD COMP, BAD COMP, a really fun project with White Sox broadcaster Jason Benetti, Jose Abreu is compared to a great, late soul singer.

Our COVID-19 Parody Song 

Sing along as we share our feelings about the COVID-19 virus!

We could not stay silent forever about the crisis gripping humanity, and so we make our feelings known, in the best way we know how.

We'll see you soon....

Online Instruction from Tributosaurus 

While we are all sheltering in place, why not take the opportunity to learn to play some music?  And if you are already a player, you can hone your skills, up your sound design game, or even just learn that one song you have been dying to play.  You can start on something you've always dreamed of doing, or if you're not looking to commit to a long course of lessons, but still want to learn a few things, that works too.  Tributosaurus is ready to help, and many of our musicians are set up for online teaching. 

Dan Leali - Drums, Percussion, Electronic percussion 

Dan is ready to take on beginners through advanced students, and can help you up your game on the drums.  Whether you're starting out, or just need to add some new tricks to your arsenal, Dan can get you where you want to be.   
You can reach him through his website at www.danleali.com, or you can PM through his Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/dan.leali.7) or Instagram (@dleali) 

Curt Morrison - Guitars, Bass, Stringed Instruments, Music Theory 

Curt also can take on beginners through advanced students for all types of stringed instruments, and also teaches theory.  So whether you are looking to start out, beef up your skills, or even just nail the guitar tone on your favorite tune, Curt is ready to help.  He can be reached through email at curtshellym@gmail.com

The other Tributosaurus Core members (Matt, Chris, Jon Paul) also offer online instruction on a limited basis tailored to specific students' needs and based on availability, and as you know, there are many other great musicians who have become a part of Tributosaurus through the years, and many of them also offer online instruction.  If you are interested in learning from another Tributosaurus Core member, or any of our guest players, please email us at Tributosaurus@gmail.com and we will connect you.
