From August 21, 2010 to November 22, 2010 I had the opportunity of traveling to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I was playing bass for Hajji and the Jump Street Band at the Sheraton Addis Hotel. Hajji is the father of the extremely talented and very beautiful R&B singer and actress Mya. This was truly a blessing and definitely a life changing experience. The people of Ethiopia are simply wonderful and the country is absolutely beautiful. The Sheraton Addis is one of the top hotels in the country and the service was second to none! We performed four nights a week to a packed house at the Office Bar. I now have lifelong friends in Addis Ababa and the musicians there are awesome!  I would never have imagined that playing bass would take me to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and yet alone for three months.
