Author Publishes First Band Nerds Poetry Book
Chicago, IL, March 28, 2008 --( DJ Corchin opens the door to the wonderful world of “band nerds” with his first book, Band Nerds Poetry From The 13th Chair Trombone Player. A collection of humorously inspiring poems and illustrations that bring to life characters from America’s band sub-culture.

Mr. Corchin uses his experience in many musical arenas to create the first poetry book dedicated to telling the hilarious stories about band members, instruments, parents, and performances. Its humor and feel-good style complements an anti-stereotype message that shows we all have little quirks to laugh about. The illustrations were done by Dan Dougherty.

“These poems prove that participation in school music goes beyond fulfilling an arts creates a sense of pride, belonging, and humor both on stage and off.”

- Amy McCabe, trumpeter/cornetist; "The President's Own" United States Marine Band

“ ‘Band Nerds’ is a look inside what must be the band room in every school -
and a look back at my own inner band nerd.”

-Scott McCormick, President and CEO of Music for All, Inc. and the Bands of
America and Orchestra America divisions

"DJ Corchin's book provides a rare, in-depth insight into our nation's band sub-culture, a medium that continues to provide emotional sanctuary for so many of our best and brightest young people.”

-Dave Morrison, Illinois Teacher of the Year 2003 and Director of Bands (retired) Prospect High School, Mt. Prospect, IL

Mr. Corchin wrote “Band Nerds” after his experiences became stories that had to be told. He says, “Traveling the country for almost three years, speaking with thousands of kids, parents, and teachers from all around the country, I’ve found that all the little funny things that make us feel different, really make us the same. Each page is based off a hilarious or inspiring true experience. Band Nerds is a book that anyone can pick up and instantly understand all the quirks and story lines that remain timeless in the American band sub-culture.”

Band Nerds Poetry From The 13th Chair Trombone Player is available for sale internationally at, Barnes and, and many other on-line retailers. For more information visit
