August is winding down, Summer is slowly coming to and end, but we'd like to send it out with a BANG!!!! As some of you know, we had an absolute BLAST playing at Tropicalia back in July. The Tropicalia folks have asked us back for a second go round, and we're ready to party! So come out and have some fun, August 29th, Our very good friend Tommy T will be join us for a special DJ set of trans-global dub, reggae dance party with a touch of hot sauce. We had so much fun last time, and the Tropicalia folks have been AWESOME in their support of us, we'd love to see you all come out and share in the fun!
We're also looking forward to September 15th, where we'll participating in the 2013 Ethiopian Festival in Silver Spring MD. As most of our Ethiopian fans know, this coincides with the Ethiopian New Year, so to ALL our fans everywhere, we'd like to wish you a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR, or as we say in Amharic "Enkutatash!". This is the 3rd Ethiopian Festival, and we're looking forward to celebrating our music and culture with all our fans. Its a Family oriented event, so hope to see the entire fan out that Saturday.
As some of you have already expressed your disappointment to us last month, we had to cancel our appearance at the Petworth Jazz Project event due to torrential rain storms. We were very disappointed that Mother Nature did not cooperate, however, we've managed to reschedule the date, and it looks like we'll be performing on October 5th, 2013. We'll keep you all apprised of the details, but mark your calendars, coz we have!
Part of what keeps us motivated and energized is the opportunity to meet and perform with a wide variety of artists. While Feedel Band did not get a chance to perform with Eyob Makonnen, we were greatly saddened to hear of his sudden passing earlier this month. Eyob, was a very talented singer, with a bright and promising career ahead of him. He fused Ethiopian and Reggae music, and sang of peace and unity. He will truly be missed. Our thoughts and Prayers are with his family and loved ones.
