FTLComm - Tisdale - Monday, February 24, 2003
In a world that seems to revolve around television it was great Saturday afternoon for visitors to the Tisdale Mall to be able to enjoy the performance of the four man group HOJA. Using no back up other than each other's voices they did percussion, group and solo numbers with lots of song and dance.

There was a good sized audience on hand for both shows and they clearly enjoyed the performance.

I was truly impressed with their songs and presentation but wondered why they looked so scruffy. Personally, I am not impressed with counter-anti-social clothing that seems to show no respect for the audience and even less for the performers. I guess one could just close ones eyes and listen, or ignore, the sloppy appearance but think of it this way, would we respect a hockey team that didn't wear jerseys. Our boys from this community, when they head out on a road trip to a game anywhere, make sure that they look good, as they want to declare their self respect and pride in their community. One would think that performers would understand the importance of looking good.

Their appearance was enough to hold me only long enough to catch these pictures, I felt that if they really wanted to be enjoyed, they would not be looking like they just survived a day at a skateboard park.
