YALLWIRE.com

Dear friends and fans, we have a very positive phenomenon happening out of Austin, TX where there is a website called Yallwire.com which has thousands of music videos of some very famous and some not so famous artists. The internet certainly is, if nothing else, reasonably egalitarian.

They have the Tappin That Thing, La Te Da and In The Snow videos playing. These videos have received more than 100,000 views since they were added.

THAT IS AN AVERAGE OF ABOUT 1,500 PER DAY!

If you go to this page on Yallwire.com you could see the videos we have up.

'An Evening with Roger Salloom'
A unique movie and music experience The award-winning documentary, So Glad I Made It, the Saga of Roger Salloom,
America's Best Unknown Songwriter
plus an intimate acoustic set and question and answer session with Roger Salloom himself.
Director Chris Sautter will join the post-screening discussion (if scheduling permits). To book this amazing event, Contact Eastern Entertainment at (413) 584-6324.

Spend 'An Evening with Roger Salloom,' a unique, informative and entertaining event that has all the elements of an exclusive movie premiere, intimate acoustic concert, and lively, intelligent film discussion.

The evening consists of a showing of the award winning documentary film, 'So Glad I Made It: The Saga of Roger Salloom, America's Best Unknown Songwriter.' A discussion with the filmmaker, Chris Sautter, and the subject of the film, Roger Salloom, takes place immediately following the film. In addition, Roger will have his guitar and will perform a couple of his songs live. Audiences will get to see the film, and then immediately be able to ask questions, share comments, and meet the two people most responsible for making this documentary so compelling, the 'auteur' and the 'artist.'

'So Glad I Made It' is an off-beat look at the question of why some artists 'make it' and others equally talented do not. The film follows former Nashville resident Roger Salloom, a quirky Bob Dylan-type singer songwriter as he tries to revive his career after giving up on the music business for 20 years. The film includes exclusive performances by GRAMMY Award winners The Blind Boys of Alabama and James Cotton. The Cape Cod Times gave 'So Glad I Made It' three and a half stars, adding "That Salloom deserves stardom (after hearing him, you’ll see what I mean) - it makes the story all that more compelling and poignant."

This unusual film/concert/discussion event will certainly appeal to a wide range of people: from film students to music lovers, as well as observers of both human nature and pop culture.

Award-Winning Filmmaker's Documentary Film On Roger Salloom
The Chris Sautter documentary, So Glad I Made It, the saga of Roger Salloom, America's Best Unknown Songwriter, was named 'Best Documentary' at Spudfest Music & Film Festival in Teton Valley/Jackson Hole, Wyoming and won the Providence Award at the Rhode Island Independent Film Festival and got Honorable Mention for Best Documentary at the New York International Independent Film & Video Festival in Las Vegas. Also, the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (The Grammy Awards) has screened the film in New York City and Nashville in collaboration with their area chapter offices.
