We at Acoustics are happy to announce that saxophonist Mark Whitecage has a
brand-new release:

BushWacked ­ A  Spoken Opera

BushWacked, a spoken word opera, finds Mark Whitecage with a totally new
Band, Concept, and Direction!  In addition to West Coast electronic wizard
Scott Steele on guitar combined with the keyboard artistry of Bill Larimer,
Mark has added Perry Robinson's prize pupil Rozanne Levine on Bb & alto
clarinets, with long-time collaborator Robert (Mike) Mahaffay on drums, to
produce a hard-hitting and sometimes angry indictment of the Bush Crime
Family, all without losing the sense of swing and intensity he is known

"BushWacked' is an impressive, bold and timely work from alto sax wiz, Mark
Whitecage, and his new crew." - Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery

We are also announcing the complete updating of Mark's web site:


There you will find information on worldwide distributors of BushWacked (see
