So, I got a package in the mail a few days ago.? It was from John Sacheli, a local musician who has been known to post on this here blog.? A while back, I covered a show he played at Daily Perks Coffee House, and I’d told him I’d be glad to review his new album when it came out.
So, guess what was in that package?? You guessed it, John Sacheli and the Spirit of Ontario, Simple Things.? So, I made a road copy (I never keep studio CDs in the car) and I’ve been listening to it to try and figure out a tact to take with it.? What an amazing album!? I’m still trying to get the basics of each song, what I want to say about each one, but you can bet I’ll be writing up the review this weekend.
Look for it, and while you’re at it, go see a John Sacheli show and hear this great music yourself.? Get an album, I’m sure he’d appreciate it.

Hey… The Spirit of Ontario is such a great band. I dj at VINYL Nightclub on Alexander St in Rochester, NY. I met the drummer from the band one night at the club and he gave me a copy of his cd. Awesome! I use it at the end of the night to relax the drunken crowd to finish up their drinks before they exit the club. The cd reminds me of a CSN or a James Taylor style. I have had quite a few people come up and ask what cd I’m playing. I must say that most people that give me their cd to play in the club, usually are used as prizes for some lame contest. The Spirit of Ontario cd will never be given away as it has a great sound quality and tone to the music. Thanks for helping promote this band as they deserve it. Who knows… maybe someday I’ll see the drummer again to tell him that his band rocks!
Talk about timing, dude! On the same day that you post this comment, I interviewed the whole band on my new Internet radio show. You should check it out!
