Watch Your E-Mailbox
our official evite just went out for our CD release party at BB King's Blues Club set for Friday Sept. 23. We hope that you'll take the time to RSVP. There are also 2 fun polls we want you to answer. If you are not an official member of the Soul Mates, go to our website and sign up. It's the best way to stay on top of RHS news.
We also sent out invites to a dozen choice luminaries, celebrities and notables. You may be rubbing shoulders with some star that you can hip to Rush Hour Soul! We've already had one RSVP before the invitations were printed. As you can guess, this is going to be an exciting night. We hope to have plenty of surprises for you.
The run of CD's is going to be short. About enough for the CD release party. After the show, the tracks will only be available for download on iTunes, etc. It's a digital world, Sandy. The track listing for the CD can now be revealed:
1. A Talent For Loving
2. Everyone's Ingenue
3. Done Lost My Mind
4. Down By Love
This is a self-produced, self-released EP. To answer a frequent question I get, "no, we are not signed to a record label and no, we are not famous...yet!" That's why this next show is crucial. We will have in the audience several record industry executives and movers & shakers. These are the people who can get us signed, put us on tour, record full-length studio CDs and quit our day jobs! We are going to need everyone's attendance, good vibes, good juju, etc to open the eyes of the industry. "Yes, we've had mid-level record label types at the shows. But now, they Bosses is coming." This CD will also go to them as a calling card for Rush Hour Soul. Hopefully that paints a clearer picture.
I hope all of you have a pleasant Labor Day weekend. I'm going to spend today chillaxin' once the band's clerical work is done. Pictures (and there are 100's of them to go through) will be posted tomorrow. Be sure to look for your own sweet faces in the audience.
Love, Power, Peace
p.s. Props to Kanye West. And it was nice news to hear that Fats Domino had been rescued from the aftermath of Katrina. Right now, I'm listening to Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday singing Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans? We all do, Satch.
