Welcome to the 2nd annual Skafish Holiday Giveaway. Hey, since all of us can say, “I Hate The Holiday Blues!” l wanna splash some Surreal-Skafish-Sunshine on you with this 2-for-1 giveaway!
For this holiday season, FIVE lucky winners will each win two Skafish CD’s.
The first CD, “Tidings of Comfort and Joy – a Jazz Piano trio Christmas,” was my first holiday jazz record ever. It is great for those of us who are tired of the same ole’ holiday schmaltz, and love jazz.
The second, “What’s This? 1976-1979,” is a classic retrospective disc which documents the historically accurate birth of the Chicago punk, new-wave, alternative, indie and experimental movements.
“Tidings” has over 68 minutes of pure jazz set to classic holiday melodies, featuring a dynamic trio of piano, bass and drums. My arrangements incorporate diverse styles including traditional jazz, swing, be-bop, boogie-woogie, to experimental jazz fusion.
“What’s This?” features 11 tracks, 9 of which are previously unreleased. Also, it includes 5 bonus commentary tracks that I did to finally set the ever-contorted record straight, liner notes written by international rock legends Cheap Trick, a 36 page booklet with complete lyrics, and many rare and never before seen photos.
In addition, a SIXTH bonus winner will win a yet-to-be sold Skafish “WHAT’S THIS FREAKIN’ S&*^!” T-Shirt! Since this lovely gem is not sold in stores anywhere, it is one of our most frequently requested items.
All you have to do to be eligible to win is to leave the comment, “Ditch the holiday blues” here on my blog www.skafishblog.com. Keep in mind that everyone is allowed just one entry and, unlike last year’s contest, NO entries will be accepted that are posted anywhere else. That includes on Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter, so make sure to leave your comment ONLY here on www.skafishblog.com! This contest is open to absolutely everyone in every country on this planet!
The contest begins Sunday 12-5-10, and concludes Friday 12-17-10 at 6:00 PM Central Time. All SIX winners will then be randomly selected, and their prizes will be sent to their doorstep completely on me, and hopefully, make the holidays a little less blisteringly bluesy and a bit brighter!
