The Other Black (featuring Wesley Watkins)
Newly formed in the late Fall of 2012, this dynamic group started with a mere 9
members and has launched to upwards of 24. That’s right, just about 30 musicians
collaborating to bring you a unique sound and leave you with a smile in your soul.
These are musicians that have already contributed successfully to the scene; from Birds Of A Feather, Bonnie & The Beard, Petals of Spain, The People’s Abstract and more.
Needless to say, upon taking stage – this assortment of artistry commands it’s presence. Their act has been compared to reading an old school Parliament comic book. In a nutshell, this crowd’s get-up is wild, garish, & funky with fresh attire that makes you believe they MUST have a costume designer amongst them somewhere. In short, they are like watching a cartoon come to life.
The Other Black clearly simply loves what they do. Their soul-funk- do-wop mix with a modern squeeze endears them. People are on their feet when The Other Black hits the stage. If you haven’t seen them yet, you will.
