Dear BYO Busicians and Fans,

The BYO Board of Directors continues to carefully watch and monitor the latest updates on the coronavirus situation. With the recent extension of the City of Dallas’ Shelter in Place Directive through April 30, we are regretfully CANCELLING ALL APRIL BYO EVENTS, and we are carefully monitoring the status of the upcoming May BYO events as well. We will update the BYO Members and Fans as the situation develops further.

As always, our highest priority is the health and safety of all BYO Members and Fans, as well as the businesses and their employees who are kind enough to host our Jams, Breakfasts, Charity and other Events. We urge each of you to stay safe and take all reasonable precautions to protect yourselves and your loved ones, and please know that we are as anxious and excited as each of you to resume our scheduled BYO Jams and Events.

All my best,

Len Musgrove
BYO President

What's a Busician?

BYO Musicians Network is a 501(c)(3) organization that was formed as a Texas nonprofit corporation and is a networking organization comprised of business professionals who are also talented musicians. Our Mission is to build valuable connections, perform music together and use our musical talents to support charitable causes.

Or in the words of our President, BYO is comprised of a group of musicians with a business problem!

The term “Busician” is a purely invented term that tries to capture the seemingly ridiculous notion of successful business owners, executives and professionals who all share the love of music and performing, even while the practical left sides of their brains occasionally override the more creative right sides. Some apparently off-kilter individuals who founded BYO conceived of this apparent dichotomy of an organization composed of business men and women who also happened to be passionate about playing their music instruments. The reality is that in business and professional circles, one rarely is asked about proficiency on the acoustic guitar, the saxophone, the blues organ or the drums in the same way as about golf or tennis. But that is exactly the conversations that our Busicians have with each other! And by the way, who knows a great female vocalist for next month’s Jam?

And today, nearly a decade later, the BYO Busicians remain committed to our primary tenets: Making Music, Doing Business and Giving Back! We give our time and our passion for music to worthy charitable organizations to assist them with fundraising and planning events and make great music friends in the process, all the while managing to continue our respective business careers. BYO is the culmination of a crazy idea that simply would not go away. We hope to see you soon at a BYO event.
