Here's a set of 30
Christmas styles for the
Tyros, courtesy of Bogdan.

I was very impressed with styles Bogdan (aka Kastlefan) was creating with One Man Band (OMB) and providing to the PSR community. I asked him if he wouldn't share those styles with the PSR Tutorial and arranged to set up this Gig Disk page for Bogdan's styles. Scroll toward the bottom of the page and let Bogdan tell you a little about himself. - JW

Styles by Performer Name

Bogdan has been working on creating styles by performer name (A's, then B's, etc). However, the styles are meant to go with particular songs, and are named after the song, so they naturally belong to the set of Gig Disks. In keeping with that theme, I have compiled volumes that, when uncompressed, fit on a floppy disk. 786 Bogdan's styles are provided in the Artists' table below. Click here for a description of the disk contents for the A-H artist files below.

Bogdan Background

Home Info: Bogdan was born on June 28, 1964 in Sevnica, Slovenia. He is not married and has no children. He has been retired since 1992. Today he keeps himself occupied playing keyboards, creating styles with OMB, writing music sheets, and teaching his pupils how to make music on a keyboard.

photo of BogdanMusical Background. In my school days, I learned to play the accordion. 1987, however, I got sick (arthritis, cloth disease etc.). Because of arthritis, my joints (hips, knees, shoulders) had limited flexibility. I had several operations on my joints, mostly prosthetics insertion, but a year later I found that couldn't play the accordion anymore (shoulders). So, in 1988 I bought an organ -- a Solton (2 manuals, 12 styles, 12 voices). Two years later, in 1990, I purchased my first keyboard -- Kawaii (50 styles, and 50 voices). Between 1994 and 2001, I get Goldstar Gek 625 (100 styles, 100 voices) and Yamaha PSR 225 (100 internal voices, 100 styles), etc.. My first keyboard with a floppy disk was the Yamaha PSR 1000, which I bought in 2002. Last year, in July, I got the Yamaha PSR 9000 Pro.

I'm happy now just to be alive. Two times already I have been on the edge of life. Thanks to God, I'm still here. Since 1992, I have been retired because of my illness. My main occupation now is MUSIC. When I play, I feel happy and forget all problems. When I bought myself a computer (in 2000), I suddenly discovered another world, a world of communication over the internet. I have several friends all over the world. I would like to mention here, Chris Shapcott from Cornwall UK, Larry Warner from USA, Liliane Christine Basilio from Sao Paolo, Brasil, and Mitic Zoran from Jesenice, Slovenia and many, many other friends. These guys and gals help me to survive my daily problems.

I'm also a big fan of German schlager and volksmusik music genre . My favorite band is KASTELRUTHER SPATZEN and my big wish is to be present on their traditional yearly performance in Kastelruth - North Italy in October. I believe this year I'll realize that, although with my crutches, which are my constantly escort.
