· Name the last live music performance you attended.

Rahsaan Patterson at B.B. King's on July 23, 2011 (Avery Sunshine was the opening act).

· What Neo-Soul artist is on your Ipod, MP3 or CD player?

Rahsaan Patterson, Avery Sunshine, Maxwell, Floetry, The Floacist, Ledisi, Raheem DaVaughn, Lalah Hathaway, Yahzarah, Anthony Hamilton (that's just on my iPhone). :-) I just got Jill Scott's "The Real Thing: Words and Sounds Vol. 3, Deluxe Limited Edition" (late, I know), so that's what's in my CD player at the moment.

What Neo-Soul or Spoken Word Artist Would You Like To Meet?

Wow! That's a hard one. I did have the pleasure of meeting Floetry a couple years ago, and would love to talk to Natalie again (a very deep sister; love, love, love her "Floetic Soul" CD). Otherwise, I'd have to say Lalah Hathaway. She seems very down to earth with a great sense of humor (recently checked out the "Lah & Rah Show" on YouTube with her and Rahsaan Patterson—pure silliness).

Which activity from another culture/country have you most enjoyed doing in NYC ?

No answer yet

Introduction

Hello, I'm Melanie, and I'm glad I came across this group. These talented artists deserve all the love and support they can get since they get so little mainstream airplay. I hope to discover even more of them through your events and other members.

What Melanie is saying about this Meetup Group

So far, so good. Dwight (Double D) was a good host; kept the conversation flowing. Look forward to meeting more people at other events.
