Dear BYO Busicians and Fans,

The members of the Board of Directors of BYO are actively watching the world events and the recent World Health Organization pronouncement of a pandemic relating to the COVID-19 virus, commonly referred to as the Coronavirus.  Your Board Members and Committee Chairs are serious about our responsibility to help protect the health of our BYO members and fans and to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus.  In light of the multitude of public events that have been cancelled and postponed over the past 48 hours, we believe the best course of action is to POSTPONE ALL BYO EVENTS scheduled for March.  The Board will continue to monitor the news and evaluate proactive steps to make our Busicians and fans as safe as possible.  We thank you for your understanding and commitment to BYO and its events and charitable programs, and we hope to see you back on stage and at our breakfast events next month.   Please take precautions and be safe!

Faithfully yours,

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.
