Jawad inspired us as he explained with words and music the artistic and historical contributions music has made to America. His songs inspired the young and the young at heart.  Jawad inspired the crowd with a history lesson of the guitar and banjo. He even brought out a banjo he made himself. The children were amazed that an instrument such as this could be made out of a simple gourd. His presentation of the three types of banjos and the sound they could produce even had the youngest child mesmerized.

Jawad used his musical talents to gave an example of melody, rhythm and sound and how all three are needed to produce a song. He played a common song using one or two of the elements of a song and until all three were combined did anyone realize it was the Happy Birthday Song.

"Jawad is the kind of cat who can go anyplace--a coffee shop, a church social, a frat mixer, a middle school...maybe even a balls-to-the-wall punk club...and play an impromptu set that audiences can feast on....The dude is the very definition of eclectic. How eclectic? Well, let's break down an average set: Aside from three or four originals, he'll likely offer up a little Stevie Wonder, a couple of Sting tunes, a Burt Bacharach number for the swingers, some Emerson, Lake & Palmer or Steely Dan for the old-school hipsters, some definitive Dylan or Neil Young, a shot of Curtis Mayfield or Babyface and maybe, just maybe, if the audience seems primed for it, a version of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "My Favorite Things."

...Craig D. Lindsey, Music Editor,
Houston Press

"His performance was excellent. He is warm and entertaining, and sings many kinds of songs with a mellow "laid back" voice on the ballads and a robust, beautifully smooth voice on the upbeat songs...Very versatile."

...Bill Valentine, formerly at  
University of Texas-Galveston
