African Knights, Blues Sisters Jam, Jovino, Show Brazil

Hello lovers of all kinds of good music!

African Knights

The African Knights will be at Hidmo this Sunday Night

This is one of my main groups, we play African style reggae originals and covers, Bob Marley songs, and mix it up with some soukous. We had a blast at Langston Hughes last weekend! This will be the farewell gig for Michel Tyabji, our drummer, before he moves to Los Angeles where fame and fortune surely await! Don't forget we knew you before you became famous, Michel!

The Red Hot Blues Sisters are hosting an invitational jam session at the Scarlet Tree on Thursday night. Music starts 9:30-ish. These jam sessions are f**kngruuuvin, people! Don't miss out this time! I'll be there and they might be kind enough to let me play a little bit again this time. They don't have anyone to hit any wrong notes except me - and somebody has do it :)
