Why this name?
Born with it.
Do you play live?
Yes, Around the mid-Michigan area, into Ohio and beyond.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It brings the power of distribution to the musicians directly. It gives me the ability to be heard by people who otherwise would not know who I am. Hopefully, great things will come of this.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes, if the deal was fair, and if I could retain my publishing rights.

New review for the Pat Zelenka Project from the Alpena Blues Coalition in Alpena Michigan:

"We were pleased and honored to have The Pat Zelenka Project perform at the 9th Annual Alpena Blues Festival.

They got the crowd energized and excited by delivering the kind of Blues music they come to hear. In doing so they were an important contributor to the success of this year's festival.

Their unique expression of the Blues, blending in some of the classic rock that has its roots in the Blues, appealed to a broad base of our Festival attendees."

Best regards,
The Alpena Blues Coalition
Ed Hickok, President
Tom Daniel, Director & Entertainment Chairperson
