Our Facebook Page Was Hacked!

To Our Dear Friends and Fans,

It appears that someone out to get some kicks decided to hack into our humble presence on Facebook. The perpetrator has removed all of us as administrators, including our Facebook page creator and webmaster George Hahn. Why would someone want to do this? Your guess is as good as ours. It’s frustrating, to say the least.

After some research, it became clear that our only solution was to report our original Facebook page as spam and to create a brand new (and more secure) Facebook page. Please visit and ‘Like’ us at our new Facebook home here:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Manhattan-Transfer/405337642852520

To make things extra fun for the hacker, you can even ‘UN-Like’ our original Facebook page and report it as spam, too. We look forward to seeing you and hearing from you on our new and improved spot. We understand and regret the inconvenience and disappointment this causes, but we can rebuild!

Thank you, as always, for your amazing support. See you here and on Facebook!

Tim, Cheryl, Alan and Janis

Sapporo

Last night was the final concert of our Japanese tour in Sapporo.  It was cold and snowing here yesterday but didn’t seem to effect the energy of the concert. By the end of this tour all of us were feeling tired and started to show some wear on our voices. It’s time to rest the chords.

It’s really a joy to play with our band, our musical director on keyboards Yaron Gershovsky, Steve Hass on drums, Adam Hawley on guitar and Gary Wicks on bass.  Each one a great musician but the magic is in their cohesiveness as a band. They, like the Transfer, are integral parts of a whole unit. Thanks guys for adding such great music to our voices.

And thanks Laurie “Greenie” Green, for keeping everyone organized and sane and looking so spiffy, and finally, Jonin and Matt, our sound engineers, who make it possible for us to hear each other on stage and for the audience to hear as well.

Safe journeys home everyone and have a good rest.  See you in a couple of weeks in Cape Verde, Africa.
Reporting live,
Alan Paul
