    Yolanda Charles is a real pro for sure. I'll be inappropriate and say she's hot as hell too!

    I saw her live a few years back, she was opening for Level 42.

    She's the real deal - great bass player, great voice.

    She also has nimble fingers, a great voice and a delightful British accent...Oh, and she's tall.

    I noticed a few other pleasing attributes, but I am trying not to be banned for a while!:)

    That aside, the reason we are talking about her is her bass skills. As I said before, she is a real pro in the mold of someone like Nathan East. She has the skills to do a great job backing almost anyone, and her vocal skills make her valuable too.

    +1 I would hate to be that drummer and trying to concentrate :). I would marry a troll with a British accent I love it she's the real deal for sure.

    That drummer (in the clip) is Phil Gould, original drummer and founding member of Level 42. Killer drummer.

    However, Yolanda's husband is another great drummer, and he's playing in her band. He's probably used to that view by now. ;)
