Default Re: What happened to the Black Band in music.

Boys To Men
H-Town (this ones going out to all the ladies)
New Edition
112 I always thought were funny
KC and Jo-Jo/Jodeci
Thin Lizzy/Living Color for rock

I see what your talking about, but I mean black BANDS as in black folk that play instruments. Some one like Parliament/Earth Wind and Fire/Cameo somebosy like that. Those are R&B groups, and while they might be crappy (B2K/Pretty Ricky) they still exist.
