Below is a copy of an e-mail I received from Michael Kollwitz.

Michael is a remarkable player of a very unique instrument, the Chapman 
Stick.  He recently performed the opening set at the Sacramento Traditional 
Jazz Society and wowed the audience.

Check out his web site.

> Hi Bob,
> Sorry I haven't been able to write you in the last few months. This past 
> summer it seemed like I was always traveling!  From July through October I 
> was absolutely swamped- the festival and fair season was in full swing. I 
> was fortunate to have performed at quite a few, including:
> The California State Fair, Solano County Fair, Nevada County Fair, Fremont 
> Art & Wine Festival, Los Altos Art & Wine Festival, Hot August Nights in 
> Reno, Los Gatos Art & Wine Festival, Milpitas Art & Wine Festival, Best of 
> West Rib Cook-Off in Sparks, Harvest Festival in Pleasanton, Del Mar, 
> Ventura & Anaheim and many other events. Whew! It was just go-go-go for 
> months.
> Now- I am very happy to announce the official release of a brand new CD 
> for the holiday season. It is entitled FROSTY THE STICKMAN. The new CD is 
> a collection of 15 Christmas songs- all recorded solo on the amazing 
> Chapman Stick. It is also one of the world's ONLY Stick Christmas CDs and 
> I think you're really gonna like it!  I hope it will be the perfect 
> soundtrack for your family gatherings and holiday events. Not only does 
> Christmas music sound awesome on The Stick- the cover and the graphics are 
> beautiful. I think you will agree when you see and hear it.
> FROSTY is available now- directly from me- for only $15. If you'd like 
> additional copies of FROSTY (or any of my other 4 CD releases) for 
> Christmas gifts- I'm offering any 5 CDs for $50 or any 3 for $40. Send a 
> check or money order to the address below (tell me which ones you want) 
> and- during November- I'll also include tax & shipping, as well.
> 5- count 'em- Five!  Any 5 CDs for only $50 including tax and shipping!
