"I have been in many places across this nation, I have met people of all nationalities on this planet, I’ve entertained people everywhere in this world with my musical talent.

NY is a big city and has a lot to offer, but there’s a club in a town called Mount Vernon named The Bayou that gives me more love than this entire world! It’s a home away from home for me. I could write a book about the people of The Bayou.
