Grant is a Chicago-based percussionist, intrument builder and film-maker. His films are posted on his site and also at What can I say? Visit his site. Grant is unbelievably creative and is obviously following his own path. On it, he arrives in places where he and no one else have ever been.
Lance Brown's website. I play in Lance's group Archtop Brownie with Alpha stewart and Mike Levin (who is also in New Quartet). Watch for our new CD. Lance is prolific songwriter specializing in social satire and humor. He has started making and posting video on YouTube and such. Check out his song "Broken-down Poet." Great!

A few years ago, Pat released "Lo Life, Hi Tech," by 2K, which grew out of the 1970's group Fantasie,which featured Doug with Glenn Charvat and Jim Teister. The 2K incarnation features Pat and reed-man Larry Klimas. One of 2K's tracks also accompanies Musefx's opening video.
