Basic Truth (True Old-School R&B, Soul and Funk) makes its début appearance at The Monkey Bar & Grille. The Monkey Bar is a destination spot, a friendly, family-owned bar dedicated to fun times and featuring live music in a variety of styles. In conjunction with Fretboard Brewing Co., The Monkey Bar presents a promotion for Bootsy Brewski. Named for legendary Cincinnati funk musician Bootsy Collins, Bootsy Brewski is an India Pale Ale (IPA) that took gold at the 2019 US Open Beer Championship.


Basic Truth performs at 1:00 PM in the promo event, which runs until 5:00 PM. Come on out, and get your funk and your Bootsy Brewski on, with Basic Truth at The Monkey Bar. For more information on The Monkey Bar & Grille, call (513) 781-4246 or go to www.themonkeybarandgrille.com.

Basic Truth has been one of Cincinnati’s most popular groups playing old-school dance music since 1998. Basic Truth has performed at live entertainment clubs all over the Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Southeastern Indiana areas, even surviving longer as a group than some of the clubs in which the band has performed.


Basic Truth performed for the NAACP 99th Annual Convention, at the President & CEO’s Reception. Basic Truth performed for the dedication of the Purple People Bridge between Cincinnati, OH and Newport, KY. Basic Truth has performed at some of Greater Cincinnati’s biggest annual events, such as the Cincinnati Juneteenth Festival, the Festival In Sycamore, and the 5th – 8th Annual Bengals Bash Rallies.


Basic Truth has performed at various private functions and fundraising events, including the Greater Cincinnati Urban League Gala. Since 1998, several of Cincinnati’s best old-school R&B/funk musicians and vocalists have performed with Basic Truth. With its current line-up of C.C. (lead and background vocals), MarTinez Butts (guitar, keyboard, background and lead vocals), Bill Dandridge (bass, keyboard, background and lead vocals), Wes Dandridge (drums), and Steve Thomas (keyboard, sax, background and lead vocals), Basic Truth continues to play the old-school R&B, soul and funk jams that Cincinnati loves to dance to.
