The BBQ was fun! Not a whole lot of people came, which actually worked out because we had enough food to throw a second one that same night, which ended up with more people. Then at midnight we had to relocate and we ended up playing The Game of Life, Ma Jiang, and cooking more short ribs on a stove top at Kriangkrai's house. Thanks Kriangkrai for your help, Alan for the grill (which we still have to pick up and return), Tony for the front yard, and everyone who showed up. It was great to see people I haven't seen in a while and catch up. Hope you all had fun! - Joe

The One Leap BBQ is set! It will be held on Sunday, August 21st. It will start at 3:00 in the afternoon and go on till whenever Joe decides to leave =) just kidding. Anyways, the BBQ will be held
at Tony Nguyen's house just two blocks off of Rainier Ave S and Graham St (Click here for driving directions). His yard is so big, it's like he owns half the block so you can't miss it. Free food all afternoon so make sure you drop on by. We might even perform one or two acoustic songs, but we're not sure. Heck, we're not even positive the whole band will be there. The food will definitely be there though =P and lots of it. Everyone is welcomed so see you all there! - Joe

You may have been hearing talks of a One Leap BBQ coming up in August... well it's true! The date and location is still in the question, but we are planning a day of free food and live music. Fans and close friends are not only invited, but encouraged and borderline begged to come. It will most likely be held in someone's backyard. We'll have a stereo going and then turn it off for
maybe one or two sets of short acoustic performances here and there. This is a small event with lots of food so don't expect a stage, mic, or anything. Just an afternoon of pigging out! Make sure you check back when we announce the date of the barbecue or if you're lazy, you can sign up for our mailing list on the left side of this page and we will send an e-mail to you when we have the date set. See ya guys all there! - Joe

NEW SONG UPLOADED! FINALLY!!! This new & hot one is called "It's Your Lost". It's about a girl who this guy use to like, but then she chose someone else over him. And now after getting over her in a split second, he realized that they would not have worked out. The other thing is that it seems that the guy she chose was also not a right pick and that they are eventually going to break. *Whew... some clowning lyrics in this one! You can check it out yourself now only on our personal page at Pure Volume. Enjoy! - Joe (Sample no longer there 07/11/05)

+ Hunter being worried about breaking a string.
+ Hunter breaking a string right before we went on.
+ Bobby being the "cute" one.
+ Opening to the crowd.
+
My face bumping into the mic everytime I was "feeling" the music.
+ Gabe being fantastic!
+ Hitting the high notes in "2AM" with ease.
+ Singing "...Never thought I'd break that dance..." instead of "miss".
+
Watching Linda smile. =)
+ Watching Linda embarrassed. =D
+ Watching Linda get teased =P
+ Getting a hug and peck on the cheek from Linda =)
+ Calling Bobby "Hunter" and then saying the "F" word over the mic.
+ Hunter getting the crowd to clap to "I Wanna Be", then stopping them for certain moments, and then getting them to clap along again.
+ Bobby's dance/spasms to "Recognize".
+ Someone in the crowd yelling out "nice ass" when I bent down to pick up my acoustic guitar.
+ Ms. Smith laughing to some of my commentaries.

So we were in rehearsal yesterday and the band decided that my newly written "I Wanna Be" could use a story on top of the song. So I did a narration over the intro and bridge during rehearsals and they loved it. A couple of hours later, I find myself home infront of my mic recording my voice over the intro and bridge of my earlier recording of "I Wanna Be". It's actually not that bad, but its a bit cheesy. Go check it out now only on our personal page at Pure Volume. It explains the story behind the song. It's hot! - Joe (Sample no longer there 07/11/05)

04.04.05:
May 17th 2005!!! Set aside your calendar because the date is set. It's One Leap IN CONCERT. Come see us! - Joe

03.20.05:
I have just finished "I Wanna Be" today. It's a wonderful soft song about a guy and a girl, where guy likes girl, guy asks girl, but girl says no! (sigh... yes another one about girls) You can check it out now only on our personal page at Pure Volume. It's very raw, but still sounds great. Thumbs UP!!! - Joe (Sample no longer there 07/11/05)
