what's a wamba?

I met Mark Moffit of the King Wamba parade on Saturday at the Sister Cities event. I had invited him to hear us perform the Wamba March. Below is a link to the parade's website and more about the history of the event. We will do some investigating to find out more about the history behind the actual music, Mark was unaware that such a piece existed.

International Festival update

International Festival Update


I am excited for us to play this Saturday next to the Erie Street Market for the International Festival from 11:55 to 12:30. Stands will be provided. I have been informed that the Festival has already sold 500 tickets to the event.  Local news personalities will be the masters of ceremonies and the event will be filmed.  This is NOT a political event.


The event will feature multiple groups 


TIME: Saturday 11:55 AM-12:30 PM


 LOCATION: NEXT TO ERIE STREET MARKET – DOWNTOWN TOLEDO, OH,+OH&sll=42.114792,-80.092416&sspn=0.233285,0.395164&gl=us&ie=UTF8&hq=ERIE+STREET+MARKET&hnear=Toledo,+OH&ll=41.645518,-83.543354&spn=0.003572,0.006174&t=h&z=18







This festival is an attempt to revitalize an old tradition of an international festival in Toledo, OH.

I met with many performers last night and think this will be a fun event.

Arrive approximately 45 minutes before our performance.  If you wish to come earlier and/or stay later, please feel free.  I believe the festival would be enhanced greatly by those of you who can stay and mingle with the public.



See you Tuesday.
