Purpose and Goal of the Gigland Plan is to Create a Modern
Pop/Alternative Rock Band that is Built around Great Songs
and a Deeper Musical Prowess than Normally found in Pop Bands.
Fellow Music Maker...
am creating a “New
Kind” of Modern Pop/Alternative Rock Band.
There is nothing like it on the Music Scene.
It will be built around Great Songs and
a Deeper Musical Prowess than Normally
found in Pop Bands.
The Main Elements of this Super
Band will be - Powerful Musicianship
and Masterful Vocals missing in current
I am seeking Collaborators
and Partners at all Professional Levels in this
Finished this is what this Project will look like…
The “Ultimate Pop/Alternative/Rock
Band”. A Musical Caliber to match
most “Player Bands”.
m(eg. Dave Mathews
Band, the Police, Steely Dan, Pink Floyd, Journey,
• Strong Live Performances
featuring Musical Prowess
Amazing New Sound
• Over 500 Unpublished Songs to Choose
From. (Mine) 500 more from various other
• “Say Something” Songs
with lyrical clarity, depth and strong themes. Better
Songs make for better gigs & videos.
• Cutting Edge Recording Techniques
- starting with a mix of Loops, Electronic and live
• Videos with Viral Possibilities
stamped all over them. (eg. Jonas Brothers, Sledgehammer,
• Our Secret Weapon will
be Powerful Cover Song Arrangements
to supplement our Originals.
"Success Formula" we will
follow is the same one created by the Monkees and
all the 80's 90's Boy/Girl bands to follow.
Backstreet Boys, N'Sync, Westlife, Spice Girls etc..
These "Created Acts" have
Sold over 800
Million Albums and toured the Entire planet to
Sold Out crowds for years. (Note: In fact, Most of
thier Income was made through Touring,
As ours will be.)
CRUX of our Plan will be a Systematic
Approach to Talent Formulation
built around "Powerful SONGS and VIDEOS"
Now that Video Distribution is FREE
(No more TV Networks to PAY) and Song Distribution
is FREE (No more Record
Stores or Labels to PAY) We can get the Product IMMEDIATELY
in front of a MASS Audience.
part of the Gigland Plan, We will create TWO
Bands. The First will consist of FIVE
Guys. All Five will possess Lead Vocal
ability as well a thorough knowledge on their respective
Instrument. One Singer of the Group
will be the strongest FRONT MAN but
all five will be featured and have a turn. The option
we are striving for is to have them Competent on
a couple instruments for this purpose. Samples Acts
Duran, INXS and U2. Top
other "B" (Recording) Band examples
we have in mind are "Mixed Gender"
Acts such as Fleetwood Mac, ABBA, Talking Heads,
X, Blondie, Squirrel Nut Zippers, The Black Eyed
Peas, The Weepies etc...) With the Main
Focus on the Female Vocalist (Interchangable)
with much vocal harmony from the B Band. This Supporting
"B" Band will be more Faceless
as thier main role is to play on the recordings
and back the Featured Singer.
Formula Bands - (Most Followed The "Beatles"

of the above Acts have succeded on A Colossal
Scale. Compared to the nearly 100,000 plus
Albums released every year just in the USA, these
Formula Acts have an Amazing track record
of Huge Payback for the Investment.
In 2008, More than 115,000 albums were released,
but only 110 sold more than 250,000 copies, a mere
1,500 topped 10,000 sales, and fewer than 6,000
cracked the 1,000 barrier.)
Fact is - Three of the Modern "Pop"
Phenomenons - "Hannah
Brothers" and the "High
School Musical" Series are Disney
Two Most Popular American Shows are
"American Idol" and "Dancin
with the Stars" - The Most Popular
Movies are "Twilight and New
Moon" (Broke all Records for Recent
Music Industry as a Whole as has
very few successes to show in the last few years -
"Artist Developement" has
given way to simple Distribution Deals
made only after the Artist/Band has
spent years in the trenches. Songwritng Skills
have for a long time taken a back seat to
a Band Sound or Look
is now so Expensive few Labels support it and even
most Arena Acts have given up even trying. (eg Guns-n-Roses,
David Lee Roth) Top
and Techniques To Be Followed -

100 Hits) See

Selling Artists (Song Driven)
Cutting Edge Production (Loops, V-Drums,
Vocal Layers, Synth Guitars, Hear
Performance Strength (Musicianship,
Youth, Energy, Group Choreography, Background Screens,

Music Videos Popularity thru Originality,
Visual Power & Style. (Millions of Viewings can
be achieved at almost NO COST!)
Publicity -Music Industry (Many Angles),
General Media Coverage, Viral Videos, Soundtrack and
Commercial placement. (The Fact that this will be
a "Secret Project" until
it is Ready for a Prime-Time
Presentation is already a Publicity Move.)
Idea for the Gigland Plan is based on a
meeting with George Martin in which he stated "For
great records to be made, there must be a creative atmosphere
established in which the artist can work. "We
plan to record 100 Singles in a one year span making US

have been working as a professional musician and entertainer
for 30 some years in some of the most challenging live band
situations in the country, from Los Angeles Show
Bands (The Zippers, Stinger)
and Studio bands (Sound
City, Seinfeld Pit Band) to Las Vegas Shows
(Heroes of Rock-n-Roll / Country Tonight)
to Broadway Shows (“HAIR”-
European tour) to Disneyworld, Orlando.
(I played both Paul McCartneyand John
Lennon of the Beatles)
have been a part of some very powerful live presentations
and band situations. These acts have a common thread - they
all require a higher level of talent and teamwork
to come off properly. I spent 15 years (Over 10.000 performances)
working hotels, lounges, casinos and showrooms in order
to focus on writing and recording the 500 Original
Song Catalog. This catalog is the crux of the plan
as it is the Substance that glues all the
other parts together.
with my Original catalog, I have honed
my arranging abilities on the revamping of hundreds of cover
songs in the process. I was even informally commissioned
by Muzak Corporation to create a channel called the “Cover
Kings” for that purpose. I went on to create
The “Ultimate ShowBand” - RetroSpect
with 100 remade Covers for our Shows.
far as a vocalist and schooled musician, I began my formal
training in Berklee College of Music in
Boston as a Vocal/Performance Major and
have been drawing on that knowledge all my life. As far
as videos, I won the TOWER Records Music Video Award
(National) for a video I shot in my living room. I’ve
been shooting and editing videos for these songs for 2 decades
now and have dozens of ideas for the shooting of the new
