Rhode Island Local Musicians
Project Christmas 2006


A CD of Christmas Music
for all New Englanders by local area artists


Bob "Dizzy" Gillespie & Tony Caramadre (Phattones Studio) will be producing a
Christmas Music CD with local area artists. This project will include
old favorites, new favorites and original songs.


Conceived to fill a void in the local music scene, this planned
CD album of Christmas Music will be released in the fall of 2006.


This innovative project also includes a DVD "reality" movie
with behind-the-scenes recording, concert footage, and a number of live concerts.

Currently we are accepting a limited number of musicians to submit originals,
their original interpretations, and oldies that are truly Rhode Island favorites.

Sponsors are currently being accepted subject to committee approval.

Promotion for a sponsor's organization and their product or service
may include a mention on the CD, the concert program book, the DVD, and publicity.

Publicity will be coordinated by our 30 year veteran of media strategy, publicity
and promotion well-known to many in the music industry, politics and the press.

This type of Christmas project has never been done on this scale in Rhode Island.
Bob and Tony expect great results for musicians, sponsors and listeners alike.


More information will be available soon or contact
