Roundtrips with N’glish 8/14/2011

Ping Pong

Hello Everyone,

I’m writing you from somewhere between Fresno and San Jose, California. Cool show tonight and last night, but then I would say that about the whole tour! That’s nice that I can say that and believe it. It’s been a good run on this “Crazy Love” tour… it’s a little sad that it has to end in about 4 shows! I don’t think any of us have really given it much thought. It will just be the last day a week from now and that will be that and we are only left with “Memory Lane”.

It has always been fun and pretty care free on these tours. Most of you know that one of my favorite past times is playing Ping Pong. MB and I go rounds and rounds of trash talk. It’s so entertaining to me and I guess to everyone around us. The idea is to say or do something that goes beyond what anyone expects… like today :-). MB was looking really down and I said “What wrong?” He stalled for a moment giving me an opportunity to think “wow, something really bad has happened”. He then said “Roger, I’m just too good at this game… I’ve beaten everyone on the table today and I know you’ll want to play me, but you’re really no challenge for me and makes me sad to have to tell you that.” Wow, that was GREAT! Even when I begged him to come to play me… he just walked away and said “there’s no point Roger”. Funny, funny, funny… he did this all with a straight face. It is true that I have had a hard time beating him recently, but today I felt that feeling… you know the feeling that you’re unstoppable. He finally came out to play and I took him down!

I’m going to miss that Ping Pong table and all this competition with MB, the band, N7 and the crew. It’s really been a family like one I don’t expect to be part of again in as a “support band” roll. I’ll probably write more about it when it ends in a week.

We estimate we’ve sung for about 3 to 4 million people on both tours since 2007. We are still very appreciative for the opportunity. It’s kept us super busy because we’ve done our solo shows in between all this heavy touring. It’s been a blessing.

Tomorrow’s a day off and we are probably going to do a little bowling (another favorite past time of N7). We don’t fly to El Paso until 5pm tomorrow. So you know where to find us in the afternoon :-)

Right after this tour we take 2 days off and head to Washington DC for the Martin Luther King Jr National Memorial. We are absolutely honored to be part of it. Sharing the weekend with so many great artists. I’ll be sure to write and give you all the details after that weekend.

Just want to take this time to thank all of you reading this and supporting us always. I really appreciate it.

If there is anything particular about N7 that you’d like for me to write about… just let me know and we’ll see what I can do…

For now…

God Bless you all,

Roger, over and out

    I saw you Saturday night in San Jose and was blown away. Naturally 7 was great. I was disappointed that you ran out of cds and did not have a chance to buy one. Good luck to you and I will be watching for you to return to California as headliners!

    To N7,

    I am so glad I got the chance to see you at the MB concert in San Jose. I was not expecting to be totally blown away by the opening act! You guys are a m a z i n g! I didn’t know it was possible for those sounds to come from a human voice! I was lucky enough to buy your cd/dvd and meet you all after the show (love your positivity)! I was so excited to spread the word to friends and family that you guys rock! Thanks for making a great night even better. Keep up the good work and I hope to see you headlining sometime in the near future!

    Much Love,
    Jen

    I’m 15 years old, and I went to the show in Fresno. Usually I expect the opening act to not be as great, but you guys were amazing. I don’t even know how many concerts I have been to, but that had to have been the best…not one of the best…THE best. Michael Buble just got to my heart. Naturally 7, you are all very talented and should really keep it up! I enjoyed the show so much to the point where I was in tears. It gave me chills, and I loved it so much I just couln’t sit down in my seat. Thanks for puting on such a great show. Come back to Fresno soon!! I promise I’ll be at every show you guys and Michael Buble put on over here.
