Trombone with Syl Johnson & The Sweet Divines @ Southpaw, BK

A couple months back I was honored to be asked to play with The Sweet Divines backing up the great Syl Johnson in Brooklyn.  Syl had his first hit in 1967 when he released "Come On Sock It To Me" on Twinight Records, and was still hitting the Billboard charts in 1982 when he released "Ms. Fine Brown Frame".  After taking a break from the music industry he was sampled by The Wu-Tang Clan, Public Enemy, Kool G Rap, MC Hammer and others, sparking a re-entry into the business by releasing "Back In The Game" in 1994.

The Sweet Divines, along with the Dig Deeper series are leading the way in the NYC Soul Scene, having hosted such legendary R&B/Soul artists as Martha Whitney, Otis Clay, The Green Berets, Tami Lynn, Billy Prince, Renaldo Domino and more
