Description: Once upon a time there were great funk and R&B bands like Earth, Wind & Fire, The Meters, War, Kool & The Gang, Slave, and numerous others who constantly broke down musical barriers. In the '90s, a dynamic young new band emerged to continue this tradition: Mint Condition, now the greatest self-contained R&B band of our time. 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. The much sought-after band, which last year marked its 20th anniversary, has amassed a string of hits and performs hundreds of live shows each year.
