5 gigs in 7 days

This is the first update of the year. Looks like it will be a busy week for my 4-piece funk band HMX; however we are going to take a break from low-paid gigs so we can concentrate on recording some demos. one million dollars song "Who you are" has been released to radio, and made it to number one on the bFM top ten. SJD Bands new album is being edited and mixed. I'm still busy putting down tracks for my solo album
