Hello World I’m Funkangeles which eventually will be a band. You can guess the type of music and geographical location by name..
I’m east coast born and raised. Manhatten, New York. left/taken when i was five-year old to travel. Five years and then on to a different location. my Mom being and island woman was a true gypy..So with stops in St. Thomas VI, New London, Conn,Long Beach, Los Angeles was the last place..when she moved to Long beach I was staying in Los Angeles..ha..My mom moved to San Bernardino and then to Virgina then to Atlanta then unfortunately I lost my Mom the traveling woman when she turn Sixty-Five years old….My mom was great and full of love and compassion and I truly miss her. She was always pleasant even when she was giving out whooping, to my brothers or I. She was so good-natured and mellow. Island woman, she could cook! There would always been lines at our house when the holidays came along. All my brother and sisters and their buddies. Some the mom would want a plate brough back by one of the boy.
I loved making my mom laugh. She was my best friend I felt it was my birth right to keep her in stitches she was an easy touch. My six brother and two sister and I tested her…..
