Mista Savona @ The Night Cat

I had a the pleasure of seeing Mista Savona at the night Cat recently - slick, groovy and fat sound. Same line up as it turns out that I first saw at Womad in the UK. Like all good reggae the rhythm section is big and heavy, and Jake Savona is a talented keyboardist that livens up the harmonies. Baz Turnbull on guitar is understated chops up the sound beautiffuly with that slicing telecaster sound. With horns and three vocalists layering over the top you really can't go wrong!

If your emails were music, how would you sound?

How many music industry emails did you receive last week? For me about 30, excluding any that got trapped as spam. I bet you every one of them thought they were the only ones I received...

Let's think about it - you have a friend on MySpace, you send a broadcast - how many other friends list are they on? What percentage of emails the friend received was yours? for me, if you were number 31, yours would be 3% of just my music emails, let alone all the other emails I get.
