R&B Stars Mint Condition at the Grove of Anaheim
* Additional fees apply.
The last date listed for Mint Condition was Saturday July 21, 2012 / 8:00pm.
The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.Shawn Colvin & Steve Earle: Songs & Stories, Together On Stage info • Jul 14 2014 star this tip starred
Mint Condition does it all — delivering hard-bitten funk with a hip hop edge, rocking out with screaming lead guitar and crooning lush, “baby-making” soul ballads.
In the Fall of 2010 when Prince took the podium at the legendary Apollo to announce his_ Welcome To America_ tour, and his plans to feature his favorite artists, it was no shock to many that Mint Condition was among them. Two decades on, Mint Condition stands along with The Roots as the only high-profile examples of a self-contained, hit-making Black music band, and with Mint’s emphasis on songs and great singing, the sole band carrying on the great tradition of R&B funk bands such as Earth, Wind & Fire, The Meters, War, The Commodores, Lakeside, Slave and many more that were an important, progressive element of the black music scene in the Seventies and Eighties. “We’re fortunate that people have come to expect us to march to our own drum, musically speaking,” says bassist Ricky. And even though we have carved out our own unique creative path, we’ve always been well embraced."
Mint Condition consists of keyboardists Lawrence El and Keri Lewis, guitarist O’Dell, keyboardist /saxophonist Jef, drummer/vocalist Stokley, and bass player Ricky.
