    A big shout out to you and boyz, what a great time I had at your FIRST CD release party. The music from the album really came alive under your watchful and heartfelt guidance, plus great vibes by the band mates. hey, the female singers were great, too, keep them on the ticket, OK?
    Hoping to see you in the next few weeks, enjoy the brief clouds and rain to make room for more sun. Revel in your accomplishment, a great start to your CD tour and feeding your heart some more. We need more Rebelinx music!

    ….well brother Rebelinx.
    Having listened to the Calabash show (October 29th).
    I now know that you deserve plenty of musical respect.
    From the very first tune which featured each of the talented musicians on stage…the tone was set for an
    evening of audio-delight.

    This album (DESTINY) has everything a funky/soul worldbeat fan could desire.

    Keep on using that global saxophone to spread
    peace, love and harmony.

    We are so lucky in the north to have such amazing talent. Linx completely melted the audience with his Sexophone and I look forward to hearing him again.
