Jamesiha.org Changes
October 28, 2005, 7:36 pm EDT

Hi everyone, I'd like to thank Lisa for helping out with the jamesiha.org site for so long! She did a wonderful job with the site and I hope everyone appreciated her dedication to the project and I wish her all the luck on her new site and her education.

Over the next few months there are going to be some drastic changes to this site to integrate it with zwanmusic.org and blamo.org. We are also totally revamping Siva right now, so this should all be interesting. :) Thanks for your patience and loyalty to the web site.

"We are so diverse that it's hard for people to categorize us," said Tomato, the band's lead singer and drummer. "There are people who try to put us in a little file all the time. But we're not like a lot of bands out there. We have our own style that is a mix of things we like."

Tomato, born Chris Harfenist, said the band started back in 1998. "We were just a bunch of friends coming together to make music," Tomato said by phone from Brooklyn. "We just liked playing music."
