Watch “Fire Away” by MANCIE Live from Arlene’s Grocery

MANCIE's "FIRE AWAY"

In case anyone thinks that I’m just fancy-pants fusion guy now, don’t worry…I still know how to rock and I always play for the song. Here’s proof. From last week at Arlene’s Grocery, with my long-time rock partners, MANCIE.

Use headphones, cause the audio is pretty decent….

The Official LEVEL5 logo

And now for the logo. Every band needs one. It took a little doing. Well, the design went through several versions. The head of Mutant Cat Records, our label, is very finicky (ha ha!!!) and kept rejecting logos. Finally he approved one that we liked too. So here it is!!

I know, I know–it’s just a logo, but I’m diggin’ it. Hope you like it too.

More announcements to come shortly…
