Prolific trumpeter Steve Madaio had a profound influence on popular music. From his early days, performing with the Butterfield Blues Band on-stage at Woodstock to decades of recording and touring with Stevie Wonder, the Rolling Stones, John Lennon and virtually hundreds of other multiple-platinum artists, Steve’s signature trumpet sound and iconic arrangements left an indelible mark on music as we know it today. This is his story, beginning in the drug-fueled counterculture of the 1960’s, chronicling his incredible journey through legendary tours and recording sessions with the best of the best. It is an intimate portrait from the inside, packed with great moments and valuable life lessons.
But, What About The People? • An Allegory of The American Experience
More than forty years in the making, a generational story encompassing American evolution through the wisdom of the people, yes! Penned by multiple-Freedom's Foundation award-winner Maynard Lee Sisler, MD, FACP
Prolific composer, lyricist, author, entertainer, producer and filmmaker Tad Sisler experienced amazing triumphs and profound tragedies throughout his notable career.
In this remarkably candid and transparent recollection of his journey to an extraordinary life - working for Frank Sinatra as a young man - opening for a slew of headliner artists - promoting stadium concerts - composing feature film scores - shooting documentaries - penning books and screenplays - writing, performing and recording thousands of songs with iconic artists - performing as a band leader, pianist, keyboardist and singer on countless events - Tad met and became friends with quite a few legends along the way as he made his climb to the “middle.”
Tad’s exceptional story is proof that, with persistence, optimism and faith, it is possible to overcome all obstacles.
