    Everytime I see them perform live on T.V they sound GREAT! her band is tight! I saw them yesterday on some type of Today show, the bass player looked like he was playing a Warwick 5/6, had serious low end.
  2. Saw them @ Rock In Rio Lisbon...great band, really tight.

    I think his name is Sharay Reed who has also played with Beyonce and on one of Bishop T.D.Jakes albums

    If that's Sharey Reed, then he's a bad mofo for sure. He's played with Brian Culbertson I think IIRC.I'd like to find out who that young cat is that plays with Carl Thomas' band. I was watching him on BET and the kid can play his ass off. Anyone know?

    Both of those dudes are great, Adam plays with Timberlake too I believe. Sharay is one of my favorite dudes out there.

    What a gig. Alicia Keys is one of those people who understands pop sensibility but is a true, hardened musician beneath. I would learn so much by playing with her.
