Basic Truth (True Old-School R&B, Soul and Funk) has been one of Cincinnati's most popular groups playing old-school dance music since 1998. Basic Truth has performed at live entertainment clubs all over the Greater Cincinnati area, even surviving longer as a group than some of the clubs in which the band has performed. Basic Truth performed for the NAACP 99th Annual Convention, at the President & CEO's Reception. Basic Truth appeared on the "After Midnight" TV show on WOTH-TV (Channel 25, Cincinnati - know known as WKRP-TV, Channel 25.1). Basic Truth holds the record for most live performances on Mojo 94.9 (WMOJ-FM - now off the air), on All The Way Live Friday on "Mojo in the Morning". Basic Truth has performed at some of Greater Cincinnati's biggest annual events, such as the Cincinnati Juneteenth Festival (2004 - 2012), the Festival In Sycamore (2011), the 5th - 8th Annual Bengals Bash Rallies (2007 - 2010), and Mojo's first three annual Summer Jam concerts (2003 - 2005). Basic Truth has performed at various private functions and fundraising events, including the Greater Cincinnati Urban League's Gala in 2003 and 2006 - 2008, and the Catholic Women of Cincinnati's 2003 - 2005 WineFests. Basic Truth is a "Featured Member" and "Top Member" of the Web site 411 TV Online, and was a featured "Local Artist of the Week" on the Web site Since 1998, several of Cincinnati's best old-school R&B/funk musicians and vocalists have performed with Basic Truth. With its current line-up of C.C. (lead and background vocals), MarTinez Butts (guitar, background and lead vocals), Bill Dandridge (bass, background and lead vocals) and Wes Dandridge (drums), Basic Truth continues to play the old-school R&B, soul and funk jams that Cincinnati loves to dance to.
