I was born in Chicago, although my parents were in visiting relations in Queens at the time. Boy were they surprised! When I was five, I bumped my head on a grand piano and I've been claiming to be musical ever since. Once, I saw this really great band on tv, I watched enchanted for five minutes--before my well-meaning Dad switched the set off. I said to myself, I can do that! And after years of hard work and practice, my youthful claim has become a reality. I can switch a tv set off with the best of them.

In an effort to promote the band, I took it upon myself to roll up my sleeves and do some serious promotion leg work. (Okay, so technically I rolled up my cuffs, so sue me.) Which means, in essence, I googled the band name to see where we rank. I mean, what else can one do to get noticed on the 'net anymore, anyway? Anyhow, I didn't know google could come up with a negative number for the hit count. Boy, is the Jay Smurch Group unknown or what? Maybe that should be our slogan. The best band you never heard of. Actually, the best band google never heard of would be more like it. Which reminds me: Did you ever notice how people refer to google like it's some tv show? As in, I saw it on google (instead of Oprah). Maybe google IS the new Orprah. Or is Oprah the old google. Or is Oprah the old google made anew in the image of the old Orprah as protrayed by the new google which is really the old....Uh, where was I? Okay, enough band promotion work for today. I'm pooped.
