Hi James, I'm visiting Las Vegas between 7th-14th September 2010..... let me know if you're playing someplace I can visit! And if not - where's the cool, (not too touristy) places to check out!
Hope all's well,
I have a 'support cast' role only. And after two hours in hair and make-up; I'm not recognisible! But this is a big Hollywood remake; We were on set with Sam Worthington (Terminater) Ralph Fienes and Liam Neeson will be in it too; and a 'Bond' girl .... I'm loving it!
I'm off to Turkey next week for a holiday; and hope to do the USA later in the year.
I just love visiting your websites .. I did sign up .. ;) Thank you so much. I checked out your schedule and unfortunately nothing was listed for next weekend. If all goes as planned i should be there. But I've done some homework on who's playing where .. etc. ;)
I'll have to ask my friend again where that strip mall is there where the musicians go after their gigs to jam with the others. Anyway, loveeeeeeeeeeee your musik and thank you for always being so kind.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
