Hi, Petty Booka is planning to have the US tour and also going to do the new album recording there.
You can see the result of a big success of Petty Booka US tour in March
But as you know Booka just had a baby and she is not able to leave Linta in Japan. Of course Booka wants to go to US. We have been discussing this for last couple of months what we should do about this. Then we had new Booka.
She is Maiko the lead singer og the Candy Eyeslugger.
She is also a singer and Banjo player of The Apricots:(The apricots is a great all girl band: please check their web too)
She is the best friend of Petty and Booka and they do recording and live together a lots and Maiko plays ukulele (she also plays Banjo) and she loves Petty Booka!
Now all of us very happy that Maiko joined Petty Booka.
Please don't worry, When she gets ready to come back Booka will sing again though she can't say when it is.
Because she loves Linta so much at the moment!
I understand it. He is soooo sute!
So please welcome new Booka, Maiko.
She is a great singer and our best friend.
