"I was a bit hesitant to write
this email because I didn't believe an email could express the appreciation
I have for every single one of you. You are all so extremely talented
and have such important messages to get out to the world. Don't let anyone
tell you otherwise.
This was one amazing show! I felt that everyone gave the strongest performance
that they could give. Your hard work, dedication and the passion you
poured into your performances did not go unnoticed and is certainly appreciated.
I was moved several times throughout the evening and I know the audience
was moved as well. Congrats on a great show!!
Additionally, as we work on getting pictures and videos out to you we would like
to add this media to our prideslam.com page

"YOU GUYS ARE FIERCE!!! I
am so at ease knowing you are playing behind these artists. To learn
number of songs you learned in that short amount of time with two rehearsals
is amazing. I
really could not think of not one mistake or hiccup in the show from
the band. Well done sirs!!!" - Germono Toussaint,
friend, my producer - you rock! You know I love ya and can't wait until
next week when I step back into the studio with you."-
