The Line Up


The Musicians and Crew of the BF Deal Sampler were a talented and diverse bunch, ranging from Bluegrass, Rock, Jazz and multifaceted fields of Music, Art, Politics and Graphic Design. The sessions were down and dirty (Live Takes) and rehearsals were sparse. The quality of the musicianship speaks in the sounds that emanate from the music. Many of them have gone on to become well known in their own right and many have faded in to the mist. Over time we will work to track down as many as we can to update you on their whereabouts and doings. Here are the songs and the PeopleĀ as they were on the Sampler.
