A New World

This is big news and I've been sitting on it for a while. After getting some
closure on this today with the good folks at Nettwerk, I felt it was time to
make an announcement of sorts.

Dave Holmes has left his home at Nettwerk after more than a
decade...(he started sweeping floors in Vancouver...opened up the LA
office for them years later... managed 40+, took on personal
management for Coldplay...and recently Eisley). He's opening up a music
division under a large holding company (Wasserman Media Group) that
will introduce DC Music as a new leader in the business of
management, nurturing new artists, merchandising, events, cross
marketing, etc.

Coldplay, Eisley (and now an older band called Rancid recently taken on)
are the only bands in Dave's new world. In short, Dave, Darin Harmon
and Dana White (all Nettwerk veterans and Eisley's personal team) are
leaving as a unit. The resources are amazing and the specialized
attention Eisley will have is going to be great...

I can't tell you how hard it's been to leave Nettwerk. They're an amazing
group of people. I can never say enough about them. We're walking into
a smaller world with great opportunity - small fish in a small pond instead
of small fish in very crowded pond - but, as I told Dan and Terry
(Nettwerk head guys) , we'll be ambassadors for Nettwerk forever.

Eisley's relationship with Dave and gang is almost like...i dunno; Dave is
like an Uncle to the band. A great friend - like family to us DuPree's. He's
slept on our van floor, slept on our couches at home... and in small,
sweaty dressing rooms before/after shows...both in the US and in
England. He and Darin are a great team... so funny together...all we do is
laugh sometimes when we're all together. But they're the best. And Dana,
their office manager is the sweetest...and also the best. We're very
excited to be on the new team.

How can you not make the move... I mean, Coldplay!. It's a
small, tight family now, but the management is the same; Coldplay is
great, but those guys will be the first to say that Dave, "handed them a
career". He's said it from stage before. No joke. If you were at the
Hollywood Bowl or get the cd of the live show, you'll hear Chris say, "this
goes out to Dave and Jane"... (were getting married) It's no wonder they
decided to follow.

Anyway... it's a big step. Just letting you know. Not wanting it to be some
big dramatic thing... Just informing you.

Questions? yes.... you Walter? Jane... Please, please, one at a time...
Luke... you. GO!! NO!! NO more questions. NO Questions for'd-YOU!

Hey, sounds good to me. How can you pass up that much attention? Especially from someone like that. I hope this move works out as well as it looks. You have my support, whatever that counts for.

Special attention is AW-SUM. It's like being in homeschool as compared to the public school where there's like a million kids and one teacher. Although in my family it was a million kids and one mom...but at least it was at home. (ps. Like my "avatar" Boyd? ha ha ha ha!!! What a strange word..."AVATAR"! It sounds like magic or Hindu or like a video game system from the 70's.)

It's great they'll be able to have so much attention put towards them since there are only 2 other bands on the list(and who are 2 huge bands already,coldplay & rancid)

everything seems to be falling into place Boyd

Very cool info Boyd. I am pleased to hear that the band's relationship with Mr. Holmes is like that of family. I can't imagine it being any other way. It's all up from here!

Sometimes I think I am prophetic and somethings I am just telepathetic.
Speaking of new management for Eisley...isn't it aw-sum that Saddam Hussein got captured? Ha ha ha ha!!! -Randomboy
