About Basic Truth RnB Band
Basic Truth has the tagline, “True Old-School R&B, Soul and Funk,” because that’s what Basic Truth is and does as a band. Basic Truth’s sound is the sound of the late-’60s to early-’90s R&B radio. Many songs that are considered “old-school” today actually were sampled from true old-school songs like the ones that Basic Truth plays. Basic Truth’s sound is the sound of a true old-school R&B/soul/funk band: musicians and singers making music in real time on real instruments. Basic Truth does not use any samplers, sequencers, drum machines, or any other devices that did not even exist when the songs that Basic Truth plays were hitting the charts. Basic Truth is true old-school R&B, soul and funk, and Basic Truth plays true old-school R&B, soul and funk.
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.
