RELEASE: From Xzault,
news today. Even though there have been some naysayers and haters out there, RizzWaFaire has just charted and we have debuted
at number # 2 on the VH-1, Top Album Charts and Number # 88 w/ a bullet, on the Billboard Top R&B and Hip-Hop Album charts. This is an extraordinary achievement for an independent record on an independent
label....Here at Xzault we know that we could not do this without you. Ralph (and we), say thank you for all your prayers
and well wishes and hard work. Now more than ever though we have to keep calling the Radio Stations and requesting the
singles and the album to keep it moving on up the charts...
The Record Release Party is
going on in Oakland on the evening of the 24th. It will be at Club @17 beginning at 9:00P PST. There should be a lot of excitement
happening next Friday as local celebrity host Chuy Gomez and our own world beloved Ralph Tresvant tear up the night to show
appreciation for all of you who can make it there and even those who can't. We also have potential (tentative) dates
coming up for Washington, DC. (March 31st), Little Rock AK (April 14th), We have a KBLX - Radio, Ralph Tresvant Day,
San Francisco, CA (April 7th), New York, NY (April 28th), Detroit, MI (May 6) and Los Angeles (May 21st). We look forward
to seeing everybody there who can be and we will try to schedule additional dates to provide opportunity for as many others
as we can in preparation for a Ralph Tresvant Tour (hopefully) some time this summer.
The excitement level is high in the RT/Xzault camp and we can't wait to see you all as we spread
out around the country in the coming days and weeks...
