Indeed, the holidays are almost upon us. At this time of year we often experience a backlog of orders waiting to be shipped out to customers who have ordered via our online store.
The upshot of this is that orders placed after December 15th may not be delivered until early to mid-January, 2006. Of course you can continue to place orders over the holiday period, but if you want to have your orders delivered this side of the celebrations, please avoid disappointment by placing them by December 15th at the very latest.
Normal service and delivery times are guaranteed to be back to normal by January 6th, 2006.
To compensate for all the hassle that comes with these holiday period delivery times, we're now offering a free t-shirt with every order over $100 (USD, excluding shipping). To qualify, orders must be placed before the end of December 15th. To claim your free tee simply add one to your basket before proceeding to the checkout.
If you were in München for the Christmas Market, then you may have caught the Beatbox Battle® Club Tour: Advancement Class at Backstage on December 9th. Or maybe you saw the heat at Stollwerk in Köln?
No? Well all's not lost. On December 23rd you can catch the third leg of the tour at Markthalle in Hamburg and on January 7th, 2006 you can witness the fourth and final stop at AJZ in Chemnitz. Then, on January 28th, the qualifiers will battle it out at Kalkscheune in Berlin for the German title.

Lastly, Baltimore beatboxer Shodekeh will now be giving lessons to another vocal musician. Connor Kizer, of the ukulele and beatbox combo known as the Santa Dads, hails from the Wham City part of Baltimore and will be Shodekeh's first regular student. No doubt it's only a matter of time before Connor also becomes a beatboxing machine!
If you reside in the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area and are interested in receiving professional lessons, please contact Shodekeh for further details.
