*QUOTES (Some Quotes from our panel members)
+MIA LOPEZ: "TEMPO - They just celebrated their first anniversary and to tell you the truth they have remained steady since their debut. In Haiti I know the group has been trekking and pounding the pavement. On both sides of the fence, both positive and negative they have had highlights and low-tides and have remained solid. New York always comes out with some great artists and if Tempo works harder and continues with the same determination, I think they have a chance of earning full stability in the HMI."
+ ELIE LAPOINTE: "No Doubt Pat, in this category TEMPO . they've been consistent with production and performances."
+ EDY BRISSEAUX: "I will pick tempo as the new group with some reserve because they all have the same problem; that is, they refuse to purchase songs, arrangements from other artists."
+ PAPA JUBE: "TEMPO", Clearly, these guys have potential, I am not certain what the future holds for them, but this past year, they held it down, with that new single "Whatever" etc...they seem to me like they have a bit more "Swaggart" than most of the rest.....!!!"
+ ROBERTO MARTINO: "I'll have to go with TEMPO. They are motivated and i really liked "Pran na cho" Rafrechi is close though, I've heard good things about their new cd but haven't had the chance to listen to it yet..."
+REGINALD FOSBARON FESTIVAL: "TEMPO has my vote.
They were the most talked about new band in HMI"
+FABRICE ROUZIER: "Tempo _ Point. Barre!"
+MICKEY WALKER: "Patrick as you know this is close to my heart and I have to give a two fold answer. If we are talking about best new CD from a new group, I say that Rafrechi (i know, my band) has it in the bag. I'm really not trying to sound cocky, but if you get people to listen track by track to the music of all these CD's, Rafrechi has the best music, melodies, and solos.
Now, if we are talking about coming out and doing everything right with a debut CD, I think TEMPO has this in the bag. I'm proud of these guys. They've done an amazing job with promoting themselves and getting key gigs. They're playing good music and a big congratulations is due to those guys. keep doing your thing!"
+ RICHIE: "Chalè Mizik. Album is good, mature ( not old shool ) epi Bono pa veteran he's just that good."
