LONG POST WARNING/ FELLOW MUSIC FOLK TAKE HEED. How do you deal with music “industry” people trying to hoodwink you? In Chasca, we send them lots of emails.

Hi Mike, this is Seamus from Chasca. I am responding to the message you posted on our Facebook page. Thanks for contacting us! I told our manager about your post but he said he was sleeping. He’s a good guy but it takes a lot of grease to keep him motivated. I’m sure you know how that wiggle works. On the plus side, he was in the first Gulf War. I think he was a frog man or something…anyway, he keeps the bats out of our belfries. Please let us know what we can do to get something going with you guys. Do you need a link to our files? I can get you a link to our files if you need it. We’re grateful for any break we can get-you know how it is. We’re a five piece and we got a good thing going. It’s hard, though, to get it out there. We have a black guy in the group, so no worries there. We also have a girl. We’d love to come out to Las Vegas and play. I may be getting ahead of myself, but we’re good. After the show we like to stop at Denny’s. Do they have a Denny’s in Vegas. My son, Roscoe, loves the Eggs over my Hammy. He’s a pill. No worries, he won’t come with us. I can imagine we could get you guys to play us on the radio and then maybe could set something up? Let’s make it happen. We won the Battle of the Bands last year at that place Keebler’s Cobb. We got 8 hours of free recording time but after they finished setting everything up we only had like four. It was still pretty cool. Thanks Mike. We’d love to hear back from you to know what you got cooking. Let me know if you need a link to our files. Alright, let’s keep talking so please write back.
Thanks Mike,

Hey Mike-this is Seamus with Chasca, Mike. I sent you a message on Facebook just to make sure that you got word from us. I don’t want to blow this opportunity. We have files that I can send you a link to. Just let me know. I hope to hear from you soon, Mike. It makes me excited to think that we can catch a break. My son, Roscoe, can’t wait to listen to us on your radio station!

What do you say over there, Bill? Are we talking records or what? When shall I send you a link to our files? Get back at me.

Hey, Mike? I was hoping to hear back from you by now-I hope everything is okay? Please tell me there hasn’t been a terrible accident. We’re ready to go here, Mike. I have the files, just say the word and I will send you a link to them. This is nice, Mike. Here we are, a couple of players in the music industry, talking files and deals. It’s a dream come true for me, Mike. What was your dream growing up? Did you play little league? I did. Stunk at it too. Maybe that’s why guys like us turned to music, Mike? So we could find others like us. We understand each other-you and me are guys like us, Mike. I hope you’re okay, Mike. you seemed pretty interested in us on the Facebook so I hope you haven’t lost the spark. That would be a bummer. And I don’t handle disappointment well, Mike. Not well at all. Let’s get some infield chatter going here, Mike. I’m counting on you.

What’s the word dirty bird? Do you need to send us your terms? Send your terms and I will send you a link to our files. Let’s negotiate. Let’s talk turkey. I think we can do great things, but only if you believe, Mike. You must believe in yourself, Mike. You are unique. You are Mike Z*****.
I believe in you, Mike
p.s.- Is Z***** Ukrainian?
