Chris Neville Live Streaming Weekly 

This week:  C-Nev is joined by the ultimate showman: Terry White! 

This Thursday night, Terry White joins C-Nev in studio, to talk music and life, and to play some songs from his new album, “Still Got Me”, and probably a couple old favorites too.  Terry has been a fixture on the music scene, both locally and nationally, since the mid 80s when he was touring with The Modern Day Saints.  He is a prolific songwriter, writing for his bands The Yellowhammers and Cannonball, as well as several solo projects, and this new album with The Loaded Dice continues that tradition.  Terry and Chris have been playing together for many years through many different projects, and there are always some good stories too.

Matt Spiegel Misses You! 

All of Tributosaurus misses you! If you’re looking for Matt, he misses you like crazy. He can be found on Twitter, @mattspiegel670 (https://mobile.twitter.com/mattspiegel670) , and via his website, www.mattspiegel.com. 
He’s always making baseball content, the latest of which is a collaboration with White Sox broadcaster Jason Benetti, in which they compare ballplayers to musicians, painters, and much more. That’s GOOD COMP, BAD COMP, found here. (https://mattspiegel.com/good-comp-bad-comp/

Matt has a band with Len Kasper, a great bass player who dabbles in Cubs play by play, called Sonic45 (https://sonic45.bandcamp.com/releases) . It features Tributosaurus veterans you know and love: Dag Juhlin on guitar, Gerald Dowd on drums, and Liam Davis as producer and guitar. These are Len’s songs and vision, joyously brought to life by Chicago rock veterans. The full album is on the way, but in the meantime, check out Sonic45’s debut song and video, “Pills,” right here.

Stay safe, everybody. 

With the current COVID-19 Crisis, Tributosaurus, like everyone else, is on hold for the time being.  We look forward to being able to see yo all again soon once this situation subsides, but until then, we encourage all of our fans to take the CDC and WHO's guidelines for sheltering in place and social distancing seriously.  It's not just about how you can be affected, but everyone you may come into contact with, even unintentionally.  If we all are able to endure the pain and inconvenience of isolation for a while, this thing will pass much more quickly, and we can all look forward to that.

In the meantime, we will post various online activities of our members and guests here as we can.

We'll see you at the shows when they return!

 

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.
