  ++ I absolutely love this group. I saw them for the first time when I was visiting my family in Wilmington, DE at a Thai restaurant on the Riverfront and they were explosive!! They even let me sing! I was so nervous but very honored. I actually sang with this band that is out of this world!! They should be playing all over the world because the world needs to see them! Thank you all so much for allowing me to share the stage with you. You are so awesome and I am truly humbled and blessed to have experienced this with you. You made my visit that much more exciting!! God Bless!
