Basic Truth RnB Band

February 9 @ 9:00 pm

Silverton Café

Silverton Cafe Live Music

Basic Truth returns to the Silverton Cafe Live Music lineup!


Basic Truth returns to Silverton Cafe Live Music lineup! The last time the group was at the club, the place was *packed* — *literally* standing-room-only — and the crowd jammed to the group’s true old-school R&B, soul and funk until the very last note, and demanded an encore!


Describing itself as, “Where the Elite Meet to Eat”, Silverton Café is a neighborhood restaurant and bar that features live music in a variety of styles. Basic Truth brings its true old-school R&B, soul and funk back to the club once again. The concert is free and open to the public, and begins at 9 p.m. Come on out, and be in the house for the return of the old-school party to the Silverton Café Live Music lineup, featuring Basic Truth. For more information on Silverton Café, call 513-791-2922 or go online


About Basic Truth
Basic Truth has been one of Cincinnati’s most popular groups playing old-school dance music since 1998.  They have 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 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 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.
