    Might be lengthy


    So Sunday March 23rd was my 21st birthday. It just so happens the I was playing in a battle of the Bands last night also. and well... My Band WON!!! it was really nice to win. All the other bands were really cool people and after we played they all told us we had won. We just went in and had a good time and what not.

    We were the only R$B, funk, soul band there.. but the other bands were good.

    When they announced the winner, the owner of the club got me to come up on stage where he proceeded to tell the crowd of how I had the worst sounding demo-cd ever (which is true).. We haven't had the time or money to record one so we just took the sound from a camcorder and used that instead.. but hey.. I do what I can...

    Its a very excellent feeling to win. There are 10 preliminary rounds, 2 semi-finals nights, and a grand finals night. So we still have a ways to go yet.. but i'm feeling good about everything at the moment.

    I was nominated for best bassist, and my guitarist was nominated for best guitartist.. we will see how all this unfolds later... I thought I would tell you guys... hope you didn't mind :)

    will do. After talking with the owner of this club, he really wanted us to do more as a band.. We have a gig setup there in 2 weeks and he is having an agency come down to look at us.. if all goes well, we might be signing on with a very reputable booking agency based out of Charlotte:bassist:
