Peter,
Thank you SO much for this award. To be included in such illustrious distinguished company is reward itself.
In fact having BIAB to put my thoughts and words to music is it's own reward.
Thank you.

All the best for the future

Congratulations, everybody. Hopefully I'll have some time to submit music this year; unfortunately too many life events took precedence in 2016, but I'll try to make time for more music submissions in 2017.

It's absolutely awesome the wonderful music that we can listen to on the "PGMusic Channel" (I often listen when I'm out walking the dog in the mornings). I don't get to post my comments much (it's hard to do while walking and holding a leash in one hand), but the quality of music coming out of our friendly forum community is phenomenal.

Again, congratulations to all the winners.

Thanks so much Peter, and thank you for providing us with the tools to help help us get what we hear in our heads into a tangible form! To think that we have access to some of the top musical talent in the world to help us with a project is beyond belief. I really believe that all of us in this BIAB community are on a journey together with you taking the lead. Where will we be in the coming years? It's exciting!! Thanks again, Torrey.

What a fantastic gesture and recognition.

Congratulations to all the winners (well deserved).

I cannot think of any other company that would acknowledge, let alone reward so many of its customers in this way.

PG Music is truly unique in this personal approach. Long may it continue.

Band-in-a-Box®: Part of The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig!

Check out the latest Sweetwater article from Mitch Gallagher: "The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig" - he's included Band-in-a-Box!
