This Global Rock Showcase featured Sister Nancy, Aunt Esther, Sister Charmaine and King D'Jango at S.O.B's in New York City Oct. 29, 2002. This dude named Agent Jay played with Dubb (Dub) Agents with an A-List team of musicians backing the artists. This was King Django and Agent Jay's first time performing in S.O.B's that is a premier national venue on the circuit. Up until then Jay and King D'Jango only played underground spot in the LES and Brooklyn in NYC. Remember that Jeff.

More Gigs To Be Announced...
2015, Global Rock Showcase gigs/tour dates with HR (of Bad Brains) & Dubb Agents and special guest bands including MC Jamalski, Kobie Ali & PapaShake, Banddroidz and Skarroneros start up via a series of holiday gigs December, 2015.
Friday, Dec. 4th @ Thunder Road, Somerville, Mass It does not matter if the venue is D.I.Y or corporate high-end operation, the utmost respect and compliance with operation policy is given to each venue, despite level of operation. Meaning we load-in and load-out on time. In between we simply work the with venue's staff. Under D.I.A, crews do not behave like divas. For instance - we will never ask DIY promoter for green, yellow and red towels, 6 bottles of champagnes, etc., and run up his/her hospitality expense. Promoters gotta make a profit too.
Saturday, Dec. 5th @ Cabaloosa's, New Paltz, NY,
Friday, Dec. 18th @ The Bowery Electric, NYC
Saturday, Dec. 19th @ My Place, Poukeepsie, NY

We travel up and down the hi-ways by all means necessary -- cars (including a blue 16 year old Saturn, BMW 7, Mercedes SUV, Audi Station Wagon), vans, Big Awesome and tour buses. Regarding a tour bus, nothing beats a finely tuned Eagle 10 classic rolling down the road and park in front of a venue. So please keep your new tour buses. The Eagle 10 above originally belonged to Willie Nelson. This made it even more special.
