What can I say about Angela Wisniewski. She’s smart, she’s beautiful, and I have had the pleasure of calling her a friend for many years. We bartended together at The Bosco for quite sometime and in her capacity as a writer she has always looked out for me and helped to shine light on what I have been doing musically. I was so happy she agreed to be in the video for “I’m Your’s” . I could go on and on with compliments, but she’ll probably call me a sensitive little bitch if I do so I’ll let her show you the cool stuff she’s up to. She has a great website called Hey Angela. Look to this website to put you up on shit that’s cool. That includes fashion, music, nightlife, and really any other thing she comes across that tickles her fancy (i’ve always wanted to write “tickles her fancy” in a blog). Tell her Progress Report sent ya (as opposed to Large Marge).

Words from Mr. Manager
On behalf of Progress Report, I want to thank all of our supporters. It does not matter whether you donated to the Kickstarter campaign, bought a ticket to the show or purchased the album. Honestly, if you wished us well in any way, THANK YOU.
It has been a most spectacular experience thus far. Of course, we have had our ups-and-downs, but we know this is all a part of the process. The success of the March 25th party was the proof in the pudding.
Pointed thanks to Mayaeni and Lord Scrummage for owning the opening slots. I was delighted to have you all a part of the show. It would be a disservice not mention that the Scrummage camp sold 30 pre-sale tickets in the two hours right before the show (Neo WHOA). We are still breaking down the win, but you two will be a big part of the overall story when we finally get it all organized. Again, thank you.
Shout out to Tom Shea, who created the trailer above this text. It is great when old friends come through to make an experience richer.
