"Performance at the Smiling Budda"

I'm glad you enjoyed your self and is happy, because it means alot to me when I can serve people and they can see through another mans devotion, passion & trust. I only deal straight so I don't bring hype, people seem to be looking for fancy talk and fireworks. Only what you see is what you get with me. LOL.
You are a great live entertainer actually, along with the high quality song arrangements of the last album that I like. So I'm impressed and so was everyone else. People ain't stupid! They can tell a master onstage and that you demonstrate simply by your skills, vocals etc. - Don Joyce, Toronto Exclusive Music Magazine
