As a recording artist, I found myself between a rock and a hard place, should I address today's racial topic? How could I not, as an African American man, I simply had to, I did not want to look at it like everyone else, I noticed something different, so I decided to speak to both sides of the fence.  My point of view is passionate, blunt, and expressed using strong langue, not more normal it's how I see the topic of race in this country and the world, you might not share my views and that's ok.

In spring 1976, I set out to become a bass player and recording artist. It was a decision I made just weeks after my little brother tragically lost his life. I never once thought it would take me over four decades to achieve my goal! And while achieving it was joyous and celebratory, as it was unfolding in realtime, the reality of what I had accomplished didn't hit me until twenty-four hours later, when I emotionally broke down!
A sea of female guitar players, how do you stand out? Life challenges never stop, the joy and pain dancing in the rain, still finding a way to bring it all together in a single instance of life while expressing it through her music. Vicki Genfan, "percussive" acoustic guitar player and vocalist, Vicki takes us through her life and music, sit back, listen, and embrace one beautiful human being and outstanding recording artist.

As a bass player, the drummer is my clock. My job is to stay locked in with the clock and to put the "bottom" in the song. When I think of the many drummers I've played, with and the famous drummers I admire like Buddy Rich, Billy Cobham, Steve Gadd, and many more, one of the badest drummers is RAH. We've been close friends for over twenty years! Introducing you to RAH and his music has me so "gassed up" it's crazy. He's recently released his latest album, Gods Music and you're about to experience one of the badest drummers on the planet!

Their arent many people who can say that they've traveled the world, walked arm-in-arm with Martin Luther King Jr., helped mankind, fought for equal rights and became a music super icon in a single life. But at the age of 93, Harry Belafonte is one of the few. As a child, Belafonte's music often played in the background, as I and my little brother run in and out of the house, slamming the screen door! Yet I didn't know much about Harry, past his music. What I discovered was more powerful then any song he could ever sing!

Sharp stabbing pains in my heart, dizziness, and sweating is how I remember feeling coming off stage after a college performance in 1984. I had no idea that playing my bass guitar and performing so hard that night would make me sick and awaken me to healing myself thirty years later. And it was all in my heart!

Humans are 99.99% all the same. Our culture is one of the things that makes us feel as if we're different. It can also throw us for a real loop! I got thrown from the mountain top one day due to cultural differences. I learned a valuable lesson, but not before I went spinning around in circles trying to figure out what to do and who's bamboozling me, ugh!

At times, we take for granted the experiences in life that have profound meaning and impact on our lives. We think nothing of it. In 1979, my family had a final break down. Leaving a home that once flourished with life, in darkness. When the dust settled. My dad and I found ourselves together and alone. It became a five-year education I never expected.

Happy New Year! Today marks the beginning of a new year and a new decade! That started me think about back in the day. It's now 2020, which means 1980 was forty years ago! Let's take a ride back 40yrs when we all walked out of the 1970s and into the crazy '80s! It's hard to believe that 1980 was forty years ago, WOW!

Starting during the holiday season of 1981 at the age of 19, until the spring of 1986. I worked part-time as a floor manager for A&S department store, Abraham and Strauss. God, such a unique time in life and for my life! During that period. I met so many great people who go on to become life-long friends. Walter Allison, my long-time friend, joins me as we talk about the "fast times at A&S department store!" The stories are endless and funny! Including why I was called down and questioned by security, scandalous!

Thanksgiving is down the block! It's the kickoff to the Christmas and holiday season. Like many, I use this time to express thanks. As usual, I take things too far, and since 2007-2008, the holiday has become my time to dig deeper into my spirt. The reason being is, after experiencing so many losses, I wanted to learn all that I could about how we transition from our physical selves, I wanted answers to my question "what happens when we die?" Ultimately, I was taken on a life-changing spiritual adventure. I got more than the answers I was looking for and I'm so "thankful."

I was told Tony was part of the package when I asked her to marry me. I was like, ok, "cool to me!" Together Tony and I listen to some of the most awesome Salsa music during the 20th century.
