US tour update + Mr Fiddler CD re-issue!!!

4 dates down, 9 more to go!!!

Absolutley loving being back on the road again here in the States. Last night we played in Pontiac which is always a special one for me being from Detroit. Thanks and love to all those who came out for the show, and indeed for all the other ones we have played so far.
Me and the rest of the crew are on the tour bus now heading to Toronto for the show tonight at the Mod Club Theatre. Really looking forward to it.

A couple of other things...
We⿿ve got a limited number of copies of my first ever solo work available. Check out my online store and get yourself a copy of the album Mr Fiddler - With Respect! Me and my brother Bubz recorded it back in 1990!! We⿿ll post copies to anywhere in the world. With every purchase we⿿ll also send you some limited edition Afro Strut stickers and a discount voucher for future purchases through the online store.
Also, don⿿t forget to check out my messageboard if you get a chance. If you have a question you wanna ask me about music, politics or anything, its the best place for you to jot it down, and next time I⿿m online I⿿ll do my best to get round to answering it. Just head to the ⿿question & answer⿿ section and pop it in there.
Once again, thanks to all of you who have been able to come out to one of the shows. Remaining shows are listed below. Keep those show photos coming through too. We got prizes for the best ones including ⿿shot of the month⿿. Check back for a tour update podcast in the coming days too, and if you haven⿿t had a chance to hear my last podcast yet, click here to have a listen.

Anyway, i gotta go. We got Toronto tonight which is gonna be heavy and i need some rest after last night!!
peace, Amp x
