The Virgins and ASCAP: Did A Performance Rights Organization Do Anything For Us?
In 1995 I moved back to my hometown of Milwaukee with a group of college friends to start a band. We called ourselves The Virgins. Over the next five years this name would prove to be somewhat prescient.

Marianne Kesler Gives Away The Perfect Christmas iPod Gift

Singer/songwriter Marianne Kesler is making her latest release "A Christmas Song" available online for free. A decidedly hippy Christmas, trimmed with Fleetwood Mac construction and stereo peace, you can find out how to download your free copy of "A Christmas Song" and many chances to win her latest CD "Green Room" by visiting http://www.musicdish.net/christmas/

"Marianne perfectly marries her folky style into that original Noel of love, thanks and giving. When the chorus begins, that's when all the lights come on: backing vocals, electric guitar that never knocks out the True spirit of this song - that gloss and plastic Santas and White Christmas royalties aren't what the origin of this holiday is about." Ben Ohmart, MusicDish Reviewer

With influences covering Neil Young, Counting Crows, Judy Collins, Goo Goo Dolls, U2, Kings X, Bob Dylan and James Taylor, she's received an incredible seven ASCAP Popular Awards, with airplay across the US, Chile, Spain, Finland Romania and other unbelievable places. Green Room is Marianne's 5th studio album.

She has been in the studio and touring for exactly a decade, covering a literal Who's Where of festival work: Rockfest in NY, Rock the Park in CT, Rockledge Music Festival NY, Columbus Arts Festival, Inside Out Soul Festival in NH, and Woodstock in CT. Not to mention extensive tours in The Netherlands and Australia. She also frequents coffeehouses, cafes, churches and any place else they allow music from California to New Jersey.
