Omaha has the best music!!!

These are my friends! Chris Saub, Matthew Tobias, and Steve Packwood. They are the Chris Saub Trio, and the best band in Omaha, and pretty much anywhere. It's possible that I could be (slightly) biased, but they are amazingly talented. They played a few days ago at a bar called Two Fine Irishmen, and that is where I took this picture. I took a short video of them also, and as soon as I figure out how to put it up here, I will do so. In the meantime, check out their website and listen to their music The guys, and Chris by himself, play all around town, about 4 times a week. They played at the Omaha Entertainment Awards (this past January was the first year), and are frequently featured on the radio here in Omaha. To give you an idea, here is a description from their website about the newest CD:
"Aero Regalla" contains 12 new vibrant tracks. Though the album falls under the umbrella of Pop Rock and Roll, listeners will be delighted to find tracks representing other genres: Big Band Swing, Party Funk, and Smokey Rhythm and Blues, all accompanied by a new horn section. A "love opus" and a "soaring anthem" are accompanied by a string section. Even the "Rock and Roll" songs have their unique influences: 60's Brit Rock, 70's Riff Rock (Led Zepplin), coupled with modern tonality and freshness. Intelligent lyrics, creative arrangements and eclectic pop songwriting will allow this album to stand on it's own.
