March News Letter

Hello Everybody,

I hope everyone is enjoying 2013 so far. I would like to welcome everyone who have joined my FAN LIST on Reverbnation (www.reverbnation.com/hitmanddub), my FACEBOOK BAND PAGE (http://www.facebook.com/pages/HITMANDDubMe-Psi-Phi/167412122048), TWITTER (http://www.twitter.com/hitmanddub), MYSPACE (http://www.myspace.com/hitmanddub), and Jango.com (http://www.jango.com/music/The+Hitman+DDub?l=0). (I'm trying to make it around to return the love to everyone's profiles.)

This year has started off quite nicely for me. Thanks to you, I was able to reach the #1 spot on Reverbnation's Jazz Chart, peaked at the #1 spot on the charts for Overall Artist for Cleveland & the National Jazz Charts, peaked at #2 for the Global Rankings. I’ve also gotten a POP SCORE of 92, 93, 92, & 87 on Jango Radio in the month of January, earning me bonus rotational plays.

There have been several people asking me about doing live performances. As of right now, I just do the studio thing. But because there have been some interest in a live performance, maybe this summer I'll try to put something together for you all. Stay tuned.

I would like to thank all of my new friends and fans on Twitter, MYSPACE, FACEBOOK, and Jango.com. You all helped me to finally take a solid hold on the number 2 spot on the Local Jazz Chart for Cleveland (on Reverbnation), and helped me receive a pop score of 84, which earned me free song plays on Jango.com. Help me to continue to climb the charts on Reverbnation by clicking on one of my song widgets on my web pages or visiting www.reverbnation.com/hitmanddub and clicking on a song link. This month’s goal is to climb to the number one spot on the Local Jazz Chart and to finally become one of the top 100 on the Global charts (I’m presently at the #286 spot). Also, don’t forget to request my music on www.jango.com/the+hitman+ddub and help me get a 80+ Popscore to earn more free plays. My songs has also been played on a couple of online blog radio stations and podcasts: DJnumone’s Hangout Podcast-January 2010 Podcast Allstars-“Here We Are,” and Shadina’s Trash or Smash~Keep It 100 BlogTalkRadio.com-“The Blue Light Special” (Jan. 9, 2010).
