Moore, 46, died "unexpectedly" at a hospital, publicist Ambrosia Healy
said in a statement.

Moore was taken to Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in
Los Angeles, California, and had been rehabilitating at his L.A. home a
fter the June 30 accident at his farm outside Charlottesville, Virginia.

The Dave Matthews Band was formed in Charlottesville in 1991 by
Matthews, drummer Carter Beauford and Moore, an established
saxophonist in the local music scene.

Their first album, "Remember Two Things," was released in 1993 and
featured what would become the band's trademark mixture of jazz, rock
and world-music stylings.

"Jazz is probably my main influence, but at this stage I don't really
consider myself a jazz musician," Moore is quoted as saying on the
band's Web site. "I have plenty of space to improvise, to try new ideas."

The band's follow-up record, "Under the Table and Dreaming," has been
certified quadruple-platinum, selling over 4 million copies.

The group went ahead with a scheduled show Tuesday night at the
Staples Center in Los Angeles. Jeff Coffin, saxophonist for Bela Fleck and
the Flecktones, has been sitting in for Moore since Moore's accident.

Matthews announced the death of the band's "dear friend" to the crowd.

Concertgoer Christian Tomas of Anaheim, California, said by telephone
from the Staples Center that word of the death had spread through the
crowd before the show.

"All of us are just really sad and down about it," said Tomas, a longtime
fan. "But if Dave and the band decided to go on with the show, that
means they know it was the right thing to do and Leroi would have
wanted it."

How are you

I set up a new hip/urban store in New York City's Soho district. Excited!

But it's not a great location to walk by. So I googled
a publicist or PR firm to create some buzz about my
store... I found these guys http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQDGUKRBnQg
but they have way too expensive options for me!

Do you have any recommendations to students or affordable publicists
who might be able to get my store in the news??

Thanks a Million!

Recommendation? You got it . . .


If you are a minority in any way, commit a crime . . . say "the man" left you no choice . . . then let the liberal media run with it!!! Perhaps you can get the "occupiers" to take up your cause!

Or, you can get some legit product, then get the word out via those in the industry whose opinions are respected.


:-D
