I started to see these other Michael Galassini's popping up across the internet on geeky weather blogs, Steve Irwin tribute pages, wrestling fan sties, etc. So I felt it was time to take some sort of ownership of my web presence and because I don't Facebook...here I am.
For anybody just catching up, here is my quick bio:
I was born, raised and currently reside in Chicago.
I have been happily married to Marianne for many years and have a beautiful daughter.
I am an owner and managing partner of a musical instrument manufacturing, distribution and retail company.
I play bass in a few different bands that you can see linked on this page to the right.
I also have two dogs.
Here are some web sties and musical projects I am currently involved with:
