Hi. Thanks for following me on WA. However, I must say that I'm a little confused. Are you Jetrbby80316, or are you KAJU? The bio is written in the 3rd person, not the 1st person, and it talks about KAJU. But you haven't used that appellation in your WA name so... who are you? And, if you are KAJU, I would prefer to see your bio written in the 1st person. Best Wishes, Joy

Thanks for following me. Woow, that is quite an intro! That must be a lot of fun being in such a band and with a dancing crowd of admirers....
Yet I am more of the blues, boogie woogie and blues rock. Last time I danced was in 2014. I was asked!!

Good morning Kaju,

It is so interesting to meet people from all walks of life here in WA.
To tell you the truth I was a bit overwhelmed reading your profile as I have no knowledge about the world you live in but it sounds interesting and exciting I must say.
Thank you for the follow and good luck.

Regards, Taetske

You run in some influential circles M8! One of the great things about Dubai is that we attract a lot of musos that have diverse backgrounds...

Also, folks like me who are not actively playing have a chance to get into the minds of the musos and see what makes them tick...One thread that runs through all is the passion for good music...

I have had the chance to talk with folks that have done numerous gigs for charity and for nation-building even over the years, and their passion is undying for what they do...

There is a multitude of folks like me that appreciate what you and others like you do and how you all can positively affect events around you, and even those that take place far from your location through the power of Facebook Live, YouTube, etc.

Good to meet you!

Great to meet you too, my friend. I have always wanted to go to Dubai, I will get there someday. Yes it's nice to be appreciated thank you - we all have a passion to help others that is why we are here. All of our actions can positively affect events around us, no matter where we live in the world. And in the process, we help ourselves.

Kaju,
Thank you for following me. Awesome bio and all fantastic causes . I am a music lover myself and have sang all my life. Started out with the open mike nights back in the day before they started the Karaoke craze. I sang and a friend of mine played guitar. We had a killer harmony. At my sisters wedding, I was invited up on stage to sing with a band called the MGM Grand Brothers from NYC also. Have you ever heard of them? They were fantastic.
Would love to hear you play someday as I am not to far from NYC here in Pa. Approx. 45 minutes from Philadelphia. I hope you enjoy your journey here at WA and I wish you great success in all your future endeavors. Bless you also for all you do for people in need. Just fabulous.

Thank you so much Donna for those kind words.That's wonderful - keep singing! We of that musical pedigree must stick together! MGM Grand Brothers are a GREAT band.
We play a regular gig for 15 years straight @ O'Flanagan's in NYC 65th Street and First Ave the last Friday of every month. Our next one is on March 31. If you are in the city, stop by sometime and give me a holla ! Kaju

Kaju,
I will see what I can do. I will put March 31st on my calendar. I sang a duet of"Always" by Atlantic Star with the youngest brother who played keyboards.
What a small world. Well keep on playing "Off the hook". I read your posts earlier with Chris. He's awesome here at WA. Have fun on your journey.
Donna.

Hi Robert A - you were highly recommended by a wonderful and helpful affiliate member. I would love to learn from you (and there is so much to learn!), and I will definitely browse your 300+ blogs in time.

Hi again Kaju it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

Hello Kaju,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes
