Prince and The N.P.G. performed at the Melkweg In Amsterdam last night.  At the end of the show, Prince said "See you tomorrow night" and he wasn't kidding.  Prince is performing another show at the venue tonight.

Shelby J. opened the show last night with a rousing set and then Prince along with Andy Allo and the N.P.G. brought down the place. We HOPE Prince plays  funky version of "Controversy"  tonight that we would LOVE to share here.  Ahem. 

So, Amsterdam, if you are having a "Manic Monday" and need to let loose, you all know where to go tonight.  Have fun and don't forget to tell a girlfriend.-Dr.FB

The lovely and talented Elisa Fiorillo has launched her new website, ElisaFiorillo.com and it features new music by her.  The song "Peanuts & Toffee" is available for download on the "Roots" section of her site.

Elisa has been touring with Prince & The N.P.G. since last year and was part of his successful 21 Night Stand in Los Angeles.  She is home for the summer with her daughter and family and plans on re-joining the N.P.G. sometime in the fall, although she is not sure when yet. 

Although she is not in Europe, she is still creating music and doing her own thang.  Not only has she been creating new music, she has been on somewhat of a diet cleanse and dropped some serious weight on that little body of hers, making her look even better.   Now, let's see her do those moves she did on Arsenio Hall back in the day while performing "On The Way Up" on his show. 

So, check out ElissaFiorillo.com for some cool stuff and don't forget to check out "Peanuts & Toffee" while on there.-Dr.FB
