    Would love to talk about my group, Five O’clock Shadow, coming to do clinics and a performance.

      Paul – hit me at brody.mcdonald@ketteringschools.org with links to promo material and I’ll keep you on file for when we select groups. If you are ever going to be near Dayton anyway, also hit me up. I love grabbing tag-on concerts.
