CB Full Band in Concert 6-4-10.jpg (57849 bytes)Hope everyone enjoyed our gig at the Bitter End in NYC.  More photos & some videos from it on our Facebook page.  Currently, we're writing new material...hopefully some fall gigs (and possibly another CD) are in our future.

Enjoy the summer...

Jim, Sue, Thierry, Mark & Steve

front  Dec 4 actual  size .jpg (59878 bytes) Contraband's first CD - Welcome to the Neighborhood, is complete and available for purchase.  The group produced and engineered the entire collection of original songs, and invites you to purchase the CD from our online digital distributor - just click here to go to the CD Baby website.   If you have any problems purchasing the CD, please contact us directly.

rockandwrapitup.jpg (13893 bytes)All proceeds from this CD will go to charities.  For the online sales, Contraband has once again aligned themselves with Rock and Wrap It Upan independent anti-poverty think tank based in New York. It is non-profit and nonpartisan, an organization devoted to developing innovative greening solutions to the pressing issues of hunger and poverty in America.

After 8 years making music (and some great meals), Jim, Mark, Sue, Thierry and now Steve are going strong, and haven't killed each other from the studio experience.  2010 will see more gigs for the group, who has been huddled up in a New Jersey studio most of last year.  


So check out the site.    Check out everyone's page - each band member has free reign to put on the page whatever they want (will Thierry write his in French?).   And don't forget to buy the new CD (did you know that it's available in the iTunes store?).

Oh yeah, thanks to our great official photographer, MM, for all her work.
