Congratulations to my brother Oliver Gannon for his appointment to the Order of Canada on Dec. 29, 2017.

As many of you know, Oliver Gannon is my brother and a great jazz guitarist. He has also worked with PG Music programs over the years on programs such as Band-in-a-Box. Although he has made many great contributions to our programs, his main work is his own musical career.

Oliver was recently appointed to the Order Of Canada in recognition for "his achievements as a musician."

The Order of Canada is one of our country's highest civilian honours, and recognizes outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. 125 New Appointments to the Order of Canada were announced on December 29th, and on the list is Oliver Gannon for his achievements as a musician and for his contributions to Vancouver’s jazz scene - CONGRATULATIONS!


If you're interested, the complete list of the 125 newest appointments to the Order of Canada list here https://www.gg.ca/document.aspx?id=17061&lan=eng
There's also a bio of Oliver here https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oliver_Gannon

To be clear and avoid any confusion.... there are two brothers... Peter Gannon is the "Band-in-a-Box"/PG Music guy, and Oliver Gannon is the jazz guitarist who just won the Order of Canada.

Congrats big brother!

Peter Gannon

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017 Review - Software for Learning Saxophone

McGill Music Sax School posted a video review of Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows last year, stating "I love using software to help learn saxophone. One of my favourite programs is Band-in-a-Box.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the
clipboard.

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
