My Friends,

Thanks to everyone who has supported our performances this past year especially Mike Black, the Saint, the Wave Gathering, Geena, Jon Richie, ASBURY MEDIA, Rick Barry, Lindsey Miller, Moira Horan, Lisa Higley, Joe Savio, Michael Scotto, Tony Tedesco, John Pheiffer, Ben Feld, Dave and Julie, Gary Wein, and most importantly our beautiful wives, girlfriends, parents, and children who endure the trials and tribulations of living with eccentric, experimental, and moody musicians.. Please forgive me if I forgot to mention anyone else who should have been acknowledged personally.

There's always a lot of ego drama surrounding these nominations among Asbury Park musicians, and there's probably a whole lot that could be better about the process, but overall we're pretty damn lucky to even have a scene that warrants such an event. Despite many years in and out of the scene, I've never had my own name on one of these nominations, so frankly, I'm pretty damn excited about it and it means a lot to me.

By the way, in my opinion, Lunar Ensemble and Chemtrail are excellent nominees! I haven't heard all the other bands nominated in the category yet, but I hope we're all encouraged to explore each other's work.

Thanks again,

Colie Brice
The New Age Blues Experience

PS - We're called Luna Muse now..
