Cheza’s new MP3
site has taken off. As
of mid May 2002 Cheza songs are #1, 4, 5, 9 and 13 on the MP3
African Charts. The
” from our first CD is number one.
We’re currently averaging around 500 downloads a day.
And for those of you who wonder about these things,
Cheza does receive a small payment for every song that is
close eye on this site as in the near future we plan to upload some rare Cheza
recordings no longer available.
Welcome to the newly updated Cheza web site. With two new
members and many new songs under belt we felt it was time
to make changes to the Cheza site. We've redesigned the look
of the site, added some photos, more
sound clips and added more news
about the band. Check out our shows
page if you want to know when you can next see us play. We've
also set up an MP3
site where you can find some songs from our first release
and some other recordings (with some unreleased material to
come). As well, we've put a Cheza video
up on the web for those of you with high speed connections
and a craving to see the real thing. Keep an eye on this page
for regular updates on the band.
In the past year Cheza has added two new members. Taking
over from P. K. Giunta on bass is Stu
Watkins. Stu comes to Cheza from a wide range of musical
projects, including bands such as Outcry
P. K., versatile musician that he is, moves from bass guitar
to guitar. New on drums is Phil Bova
, also coming from a varied background including Ottawa funk-meisters
During the past few months two of Cheza's members have seen
new-borns arrive into their lives, slowing things down temporarily.
But with babies in tow, the band is back and ready to make
music again. Hope to see you at an upcoming show.
