Jade profile story

My musician friends
This is a wonderful guitar player named Tariqh Akoni. We played some of our very first gigs together and I am so proud of his success(currently working with Josh Groban). He's one of the good guys on the planet:-)
This site is not quite up yet, but keep checking. Another former bandmate I'm very proud of. He's drumming for Lenny Kravitz these days!
For all you Suzuki fans, he's doing very well back in Japan playing bass, writing and producing music! P.S. The site is originally in japanese, so if you are having troubles with the translation, keep that in mind.
Another great, talented guitarist. A wealth of information. Another good guy on the planet.
Buddy's the smooth jazz guitar guy. A real treat. Check him out.

Friends helping others
President of Leave no Veteran Behind Eli Williamson is a good friend and a war veteran. I'm proud of his service and his cause. Check out the sight and help if you can.
