Now here is a genre I’ve been waiting a long time to really get into. I know the Church gets down, all the music I always enjoyed most definitely came from deep places and when I hear soul music I can still here the Church. So why leave it out. Here’s just a small look into the deeply soulful, funky sometimes emotionally moving Gospel from America. With a little “Black Moses” in there for kicks.

Gastown held a long-over due Bicycle race and it surrounded the shop; nobody could get in to the store. So after work we took photos of all the stars and their very expensive hardware.
A beautiful restaurant will open here soon called “DD Mau”. Owned and operated by friends of Haven, they share the kind of genuine love and devotion that we have and it shows. As displayed by the sweat on their brows! I wish you could smell and taste what wonderful sandwiches they made, it warmed my heart. Thier logos and menus were designed in part by our own fellow employee Daisuke.
They open real soon at 1239 Pacific Boulevard in Yaletown, Vancouver. Check out WWW.DDMAU.CA for more info on the official opening that is happening real soon.
