I wish all a good day as we remember those who died that we might live in the greatest, most free country, ever, in the entire history of mankind.

This is a song I wrote and recorded shortly after having gotten BiaB for the very first time.

I posted this simply as a salute to the men and women who are in this forum and have spent a portion of their lives in the armed service of this country.

SOMETHING TO DIE FOR

Thank you for your service.... Semper Fi!!!

Really great work Herb! Really well developed and well written story. Pretty heavy bridge-kind of intense for the feelgood mood of the song. A pleasure to listen to this! Take care. Greg

I gave listen.
Performed well and your voice easily fits the country genre.
I sense the sincerity with your tribute.
Well done.

Just curious, since you said 'Semper Fi'....were you a Marine also?

Back to topic....

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
