Hi Mr. Riley, This is Brooke, the bass player from the UNI jazz band. I'm trying to find some good music things to do this summer. Are there any you recommend in particular? It was great to play with you! Best, Brooke

Hi Mr Riley I had a question regarding your upcoming gigs - I'm heading up to NYC for Spring Break, and I wanted to see you play. Where is the best venue you would recommend for me to come to?
