JuJu II (Two)

June and I went to fill out our volunteer forms to sing at Transitions last week. The lady asked if we had a name for our group. This set us on a week long search for the perfect name. We ended up with JuJu II, for our first names. It turns out juju is luck, good or bad, and also refers to black magic as well as Nigerian pop dance music. We decided to overlook all the possible connotations, and just enjoy the name. It is fun to say.

Here's the folder I made for our books. This afternoon we have our first gig at Transitions in Sykesville. Here is our song list. Wish us luck!
