**Jann Klose, a dynamic singer-songwriter who makes music that seems to defy categorization.  We’ve had folk, jazz, progressive rockers, and pop fiends claiming his music as their own. We're going to Triple AAA radio, starting in July with four emphasis tracks (although it looks as though stations are choosing a variety of songs from the album!)  The song “Watching You Go” is a lead radio track both in the States and internationally. And it is exclusively online at http://www.ilike.com/artist/Jann+Klose . Jann’s summer dates include a few weeks in the UK, Germany, and a last day of summer September 20 collaboration with Renaissance lead singer Annie Haslam at the Sellersville Theater, in Sellersville, PA.  Visit http://www.jannklose.com.

**Tower of Power has many dates in Europe late June and most of July.  The group will be back in the States July 27 for shows in the West Coast through September. Please visit the band’s web site for them http://www.towerofpower.com.
**The American Band, Grand Funk Railroad will be playing live on the fourth of July at the Motorplex, in Ennis, TX, for the extreme drag racing TV show1320X.  More summer dates at http://www.grandfunkrailroad.com.

**In addition to Jethro Tull celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, drummer Doane Perry is also celebrating a special milestone—his 25th year with the group.  He is available for interviews this season.  For Ian Anderson, I’m mainly focused on tour press and national print media for him. 

North American tour dates can be found at http://www.jethrotull.com.

**Breaking news, is that Strawbs will be continuing as a four-piece group.  Keyboardist John Hawken is retiring as of this tour.  John’s career has included the original Renaissance or Illusion (with Keith Relf and Jim McCarty), the Nashville Teens, and Spooky Tooth.  I’m not sure if his site will be updated, but there is some great information on John’s career at http://www.johnhawken.com.   The Strawbs have new songs (“The Broken Hearted Bride” and “Call To Action”) from the band’s September 23 album—to be called, THE BROKEN HEARTED BRIDE on Dave Cousins’ myspace site, http://www.myspace.com/davecousinsuk.
