The Show Must Go On…

Every band comes to a point of evolution – some come sooner than others. As of yesterday morning, “The Radical Legs” has decided to end his journey with JHRL and follow his personal artistic vision. Every artist owes it to themselves follow their heart – to do otherwise is damaging to ones soul and personal growth. Johnnie and I will soldier on and pursue the goals we set out to accomplish. Most likely the name of the band will change at some point but until then we will continue simply as JHRL. We wish Legs much success and head down our separate paths with love.

We’re going to Brooklyn… we’re going to Brooklyn…(doing a happy dance)

An epic “THANK YOU!!” to everyone who voted and shared our FaceBook page for the Afro-Punk Festival Battle of the Bands!
We made the top 16 of the battle!!!! 🙂 It was incredibly stressful but very empowering at the same time. We actually beat the odds and pulled it off. We’re still in shock but it’s a good shock. The bands in the contest are SO fuckin’ dope! It’s really an honor to be amongst them. We’re gonna do our best to leave our mark in BK and within the legacy that is Afro-Punk!
Now we just have to figure out how to get the to other side of the country in a week! LOL!

Cee Lo Green!!

We went to see our drummer Brittany Brooks perform with Scarlet Fever at The Whiskey. They played a set of cover songs and closed out the night with Cee Lo’s hit “Fuck You”. Mid way through the song Cee Lo jumps on stage!!! It was a pretty damn awesome surprise! 🙂 Also in the audience was the Goodie Mob and Kellis! What a hot night!
