About Basic Truth
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 is true old-school R&B, soul and funk, and Basic Truth plays true old-school R&B, soul and funk.


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.  Also, they have 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.


Come out on August 16 to see Basic Truth as a part of the Fifth Lounge Live Music lineup!
