It's been an interesting time for us, especially financially for us and not knowing when we will be able to go back to performing again. We have been keeping super busy and have started a morning show called the _Luckdown_ every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. One of the reasons for that is to create a good vibe and some positivity.

Jules, Goodluck

We've taken the opportunity to raise funds for a feeding scheme that's really close to us. We feed 1,700 people per day. Between all that we've been quite busy.

Jules, Goodluck
