December/January NZ Musician out now

Thursday December 16, 2004

Hi there

Hope your Silly Season is going well!

The December/January issue of NZ Musician is in stores now with metal masters 8 Foot Sativa on the cover, plus features on the Misfits of Science, The Fanatics, 48May, classical champion John Psathas and generous helpings of lessons, gear reviews and much more. Check out our stockists to see where you can grab a copy.

The new issue also features the 2005 Studio and Label Directory, if you are looking for a place to record or wondering which record labels may be interested in your music.

As an added Christmas bonus there's also a free pull-out 2005 wallplanner, complete with significant dates in the musical calendar.

You can also enter the draw to win an ADK A51 studio microphone which could be a great Christmas present to yourself, or for a muso friend if you're the generous type.

And on our website there's a list of New Year's Eve events if you're making plans for the big night. Email if you have an event to add to this; you can also submit gigs to our online gig guide.
