Medellin Jam Master Mark Eppler Staff Sheri Salomone Stormie Jackson Lette r fro m the Editor Welcome to Boogie Magazine. It took us longer to get here than we thought, but we’re learning as we go. I think we can safely call this one the “Hell or High-water” issue. First of all, I want to thank everyone for your support and especially the musicians who contributed and befriended us since the beginning. Three months ago we started hosting jam sessions. The first one was at Nick Abadilla’s photography studio in Mission Valley. We were overwhelmed by the turnout of high-caliber musicians who came from all over, for nothing else but the sheer pleasure of being able to play impromptu sets with different musicians. Thus was born the idea to host monthly jam sessions to raise money for charity. So far we’ve raised $800 to help local families during the holidays. These sessions inspired us to launch a new kind of magazine that not only showcases these fantastic musicians, but will also help to promote the entire live music scene. We intend to deliver the live music experience through a rich, interactive digital magazine with high-quality photography and videos showcased in a beautifully engineered format . As we started building this new digital magazine, we quickly realized we needed somewhere to share ongoing information in real time. We tried a blog and built a beautiful website but it ended up being Facebook that stole the show. We were amazed to receive over 500 likes in less than 90 days and we’re steadily growing thanks to your support. These online volumes of Boogie Magazine are hereby dedicated to highlight the best of the live music scene wherever we go from here. Come share the experience with us and show us how much you like to boogie! Eli J. Medellin Publisher / Editor Videography Brad Anderson Special Thanks The Moneymen Boogie Magazine 2
