Who are these guys?
Mike Angiletta Business Development, Marketing, Lead Singer & Keyboardist
Mike was the co-founder of Online Marketing Connect, the company behind leading online marketing education brands including Online Marketing Summit events and the Online Marketing Institute. Prior to Online Marketing Connect, Mike was Vice President of Marketing for D&M Holdings, the global holding company of high-end home entertainment brands including Denon, Boston Acoustics, Marantz, McIntosh Labs and other awesome high-fidelity brands.
Music Cred: In 2007, Mike created Mix & Mash, the largest online DJ contest at the time, sponsored by Denon DJ, Guitar Center, & Armani Exchange. Mike also created the online Extreme Home Theater Makeover contest sponsored by Circuit City, La-Z-Boy, Denon and Boston Acoustics. As a child, Mike played classical piano for too many years to count. He eventually rebelled and played lead vocalist and keyboard in a really shitty garage band. Mike has since resigned himself to helping far more musically talented musicians perform live in front of their fans.

Don Jakubauskas Technology & Guitarist
Don is a website developer, coder, and software engineer, depending on who you talk to. He has worked on websites for a mishmash of New England companies. He loves website development, possibly even more than playing bass. Don is stoked to merge his two greatest passions - music and development - to help bands connect with their fans.
Music Cred: Don played bass for a touring punk/hardcore band from Boston until he realized he could actually get paid to do web development without even leaving his home. Don continues to have a deep passion for music, having played guitar and bass for more than ten years.
Favorite Bands: Rancid, NOFX, Descendents, Ramones, The Exploited, Voodoo Glow Skulls.
