I caught Michael's clinic in Decatur, Illinois and have been a fan for years. I am interested in being a part of the street team! You can reach me at email address below and I will set you up with whatever contact info you need.
Ok sorry about this, it probably says somewhere on the website, but I'm not quite sure what the street team is. Are there any age requirements or anything like that? Also, are there any obligations that I would need to make in the future, etc.? Or am I making a big deal out of this when it's only a newsletter or something along those lines . Thanks in advance.

Visit my website at www.midwestentertainers.net or Michael's site, www.angelo.com and click on the street team page. There, you will find a short explanation of the team as well as photos of other team members.
We send the street team press releases and information before it is sent to the masses. The team helps Michael by spreading the news to message boards, guitar forums, radio stations, magazines, and any other media that they find. Street team members often attend clinics and shows worldwide as shown by the street team photos.
There is no age restriction, cost or mystery obligations to join the team. We truly appreciate each and every street team member that joins in our mission!
This forum will be used as a meeting place for team members to talk to each other, ask Michael questions and discuss any music related topic.
If you want to join the team, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or just PM me here with your contact info. Thanks for your interest and support of the #1 Shredder of All Time!

Anways michael get back to the UK coz we got a need for speed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm Matt, I live in New York, a junior in high school, and I've been a fan of Michael since before I can remember. I've recently joined the street team, and I'm really overjoyed to be part of a community that promotes a man whom I have such respect for. I'll be visiting the boards periodically to see whats happening, whats new, and all those good things...

Many of you have joined the street team! We sincerely thank you for the support!
There are so many of you, that I'm a bit backed up in logging your info into the database. In about a week, I should be caught up and will send everyone an updated newsletter, along with a couple of small assignments.
I became a member a few month ago, but I wish I had registered a month earlier...
I work 12 hours nightshifts and one evening 15 minutes before I had to leave for work, I was sitting in front of my computer. Just before shutting it down I went to one of my fave musicstores website. There it was... Michael Angelo Batio Clinic for Dean Guitars in 24 hours. I had 12 hours at work + transport, 1 1/2 hour by train, and the trainticket would set be back almost 100 $. Having a family, it's not something You just do. So I went to the bedroom, but my wife was allready at sleep. So I had to wait more than 12 hours before I could talk with her. But finally I did and she said Yes. As soon as I got home I called the store to makes sure to get a seat (actually I had to sit on the floor with cramping leg - but that didn't matter) and then up in bed to get about 3 or 4 hours of sleep before leaving.
The Clinic was awesome and glad it happened. He was cool, he was funny, and as we all know - a guitarGod. I shook (??) his hand and got I signed poster. It was well worth all the trouble and the waiting to know if I could go.
But next time Mike is coming to Denmark (2005? I sure hope know it some time in advance.

I know what you mean. We didn't have a lot of information about Denmark because once word got out he was coming, additional appearances were requested very sudden. This happens sometimes when booking tours.
I'm glad you were able to make it. Michael has been invited back in 2005.
I'd definitely be interested, I just have a couple of problems.
Is my street address necessary? I'm a little hesitant to give out that kinda stuff out online, not that I don't trust you, but you never know who might be able to get their hands on it, what with hackers and all. My email address, if that's what you meant when you said address , is perfectly fine.
I'm also a little hesitant to join because I'm not too sure how much help I would be. What with between school family, friends, and of course, guitar, I don't really have a lot of free time nowadays. I would like to join, but I probably wouldn't be that valuable of an asset .
Mr. Tepes I think that most off the work You'll do for the Street Team You'll do online while You're surfing anyway. So join the gang...
BTW Deb, how come You didn't send out a mail to the street Team regarding this Forum? I do visit www.angelo.com reguraly(?), but You know, everything comes in tides. Some members may not have been around for a few month and will be missing out.
My story is kin' of fun... Actually, it started with a simple question to Deb... (I was praticaly sure that she wouldn't answer like all other guitar company !) but no ! she answer ! (Thx by the way ) And after talking and talking about Micheal and Dean, she proposed me: You can come in the Micheal Street Team and the Dean Guitars street team !
After talking with my Mom (remember Deb ? hehehe ;D ;D ;D), I was able to get in those both street team !
I M PROUD TO BE IN THOSE TWO STREET TEAMS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Hey Deb, Thx for saying that I'm a Loyal Stree Team member... really thank you !)
