Mile High Guys sticks with me. Sounds like it offers a range of what you can do, and sounds like an act I'd be curious to see at a festival.

two great posts in a row!

Greg that is awesome... I don't know if that will be the name, but that is one hell of a tag line.

Isabella,

GREAT point, and exactly what we are going for. Are you going to be at NECCA anytime soon? We have about 2000 questions to ask you.

Here's a name we've been bouncing around:

Fly Guys

etienne

yeah I was thinking in terms of a tag...or video or marketing....

Etienne and Joe are "Raising the Bar!"
one step at a time...

Whatever you choose for a name or tag, good luck.

Default A local duo...

Started their career with "Better Than Nothing." This, I think, is the best duo name ever.

They no longer use the name, and I sorely miss hearing "Our next act is Better Than Nothing."

Looks good.
if you want my tips here they are.
make it clear what's a link and what's not
take the bevels off all text
get your photos retouched by someone good ie: evan young

the top horizontal bars don't do anything except stop the eye. i think they're funny with your "verical comedy" tag, but maybe it should be a horizontal bar with diagonal grey stripes in it.

no (") without quotes. You put in quote marks for no reason.

last priority:
I think your choice of fonts is horrible, the text body is fine, but the two blue fonts are sending two different messages that don't seem to match you at all. they say swingdance, sewing newsletter to me.

attached is a sample of ...
anime ace http://www.1001fonts.com/font_details.html?font_id=667
tallys http://www.josbuivenga.demon.nl/tallys.html

fun and professional and artistic

Bill's last name is "Forchion".

The layout is really clean and easy to read and navigate. I like the orange/blue/grey scheme, but I think you could use pictures with either stronger graphic elements or more lively backgrounds - because the site is so clean, the plain backgrounds of the photos seem unexciting.

The front page is really clean and graphic - is it worth having a line of description that says what you do?

I just caught this thread for the first time. I haven't laugh that hard in a while.

well yesterday I did, but that's only because I saw something really funny - which i was not expecting.
