    BYO Flash Jam for Charity   

    BYO Members, join our first BYO Flash Jam on Saturday February 24 from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm.  Busicians will gather at C.C. Young Senior Living Center to play music for residents of the Senior Care, Skilled Nursing and Memory Care units of this facility. Please sign up in advance so we will know how many are coming. To make this activity accessible to all of our members we have created Version 1 of a BYO Songbook (download below). We will select songs from this book so all of our members will have an opportunity to learn the songs in advance.

    This will be primarily an acoustic affair, perfect for stringed instruments, although if you want to bring a bass or keyboard with a small amp that is fine. I encourage percussionists to bring small instruments such as bongos, cajon, shakers, anything relatively portable and not too loud (be creative). Depending on how many of us sign up, we may break into separate groups and perform simultaneously in multiple locations. Two of the designated locations already have a piano onsite.

    Our audience will average 85 years old so you will see some music in the songbook that is chosen with that in mind. We definitely need vocalists for lead and harmony in addition to playing our instruments. C.C. Young Senior Care is very excited to have us back again.

    MONTHLY BYO BUSICIAN BREAKFAST MEETING

    An event for members and guests starting at 7:30 am, enjoy a breakfast with many of your fellow Busicians in a setting where we can get to know each other and actually hear the conversation!  

    SPEAKER THIS MONTH:  A reformed financial executive with a penchant for turning perfectly good hobbies into careers, BYO co-founder Steve Crane will present Why Your Business Needs to Go Visual.”

    A good smartphone, some decent lighting, and a tripod may be all that you need, but your business needs to adopt a visual communications strategy that reflects how people learn and communicate in today’s digital era.  Rapidly changing technology, mobile devices, social networks, information overload, millennials in the workforce, and a self-educated consumer market make it abundantly clear that we need to drastically change the way we conduct business if we want to be successful in the years to come.

    Steve will discuss the various types of video you might consider creating; how, when and where to use your videos; what equipment you already own to create your videos; additional tools and techniques you might want to use to make your videos more professional looking… and maybe a few tricks to make your band videos the envy of all your musical friends!

    It's a fun way to get better acquainted and learn about the business interests of other BYO members. Join us.

    Pedalboard Workshop

    Looking for "Tone Heaven", that perfect sound? Confused by the hundreds of foot pedals available today? Mystified by how to properly lay out your pedals to get that optimal sound? 

    The great guys at Tone Shop Guitars have put an event together exclusively for BYO members and friends to ease your pedalboard pain. Guitar specialist Rhys Johnson will lead a "Pedalboards 101" workshop,  how to arrange your pedalboard for maximum results and minimal stage failures. Learn what pedals should be first in the chain and what should go last. See how to reliably power your board without a rat's nest of cables and wires. See how the pros secure their board for portability and learn about some of the newest pedals on the market today. 

    Bring your board or your pedals to the workshop and get an expert opinion on your setup, a chance to finally ease the stage frustration of disappointing tone or effects that go crazy during your hot solo.

    In addition, Tone Shop guitar technicians will be on hand so you can bring your axe in for repairs, re-stringing or general trouble-shooting and repairs.  

    BYO will provide liquid refreshments for the evening. Come prepared to ask questions about your rig and the best setup for your personal sound.

    Come join your BYO friends for a concert night at the Dallas Arboretum. This is purely a BYO social event where we will gather together on the lawn at the Dallas Arboretum to hear the ultimate Motown tribute band, MOTOWN MAGIC. Everyone buys their own tickets, brings spouse or friends and we all enjoy the show together. Tickets are only $30 each, less if you are an Arboretum member. Lawn seating. Bring your own cooler and food. This will be a blast with lots of us sitting together. Show starts at 7:30 and ends at 9:00, but get there early to get a decent spot. 

    Buy tickets here. These concerts sell out quickly so don't hesitate. On the Arboretum website select the calendar date of June 8 and look for "all events". Select this show and buy your tickets online. LETS HAVE A GREAT BYO SHOWING.
