· "The new CD sounds great. The folks in my office are actually sitting listening to it right now and they love it. Unfortunately, I'm not doing activities/programming work anymore... but if you'd like, you could always use me as a reference .... I would be more than happy to help you out by telling folks how great your group is (easy to work with, very professional, on-time, welcomed by students, etc.)"

·Hello stefanie.... I have just recieved your email. Thank you for responding.... I saw You guys at Borders the other night. You probably remember the annoying guy who claimed that he was a drummer and that you reminded him of Deep Banana. Yeah well...that's me and I thought that you guys were real groovy. Something you cannot help but dance to. I bought your cd and that, too is good. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that your music is passionate and thank you for keeping the funk alive. Tell Jack to continue playing traditional and Marco, Minoru, and your wonderful vocalists that their music is greatly appreciated. Thanks for making me smile that night. I needed it and with the power of music at your fingertips, you were able to bring a bit of happiness to my life. Keep Shining, blue I hope that I can make it soon for another dose of the funk

·Hi, I just wanted to drop you a line. I got my XM radio and was listening to the Unsigned Band channel and caught your music. I really enjoyed it and was wondering if you were playing anywhere in the D.C. area. Thanks and keep rocking (don't you hate cliches?).
