One of the Judges favorites last week on America's Got Talent, was a rap group (using music and costumes from the 20's and 30's) The James Gang, I was doing some reading on the net and a group member also performs magic during their show... so their may be some upcoming rap/magic.

I'm not a fan of rap but I found the musical premiss interesting.

They did a GREAT job! They're from Harlem and are very unique, original and fun!
You can catch them around the city.

That young man in the back of the group "The James Gang" is David Boyd from New York. He is also competing in the stage competition at the combined SAM/ IBM Convention being held this week.

Did they perform "The Bomber", "Funk 49", or "Midnight Man"? Smile

It's cool that a band that's been around such a long time is open to new musical genres such as rap.

maybe with their backing rap will really catch on, and we'll be able to listen to it for ever and ever and EVER .................

Wrong "James Gang," the group I write of are from the hood, not rednecks from the 70's.

Can you imagine Joe Walsh doing rap? He can hardly talk... Smile

This 'James Gang' (calling all lawyers!) isn't as good as some seem to think in my geezer honkified position. I prefer my rap with an edge not a cup of warm milk.

Hope you guys get voted through again David.

I'm not a rap fan but your music blows me away, just my opinion.

I'm rooting for you and will actually vote this season just to help ya guys out!

Hey where can a guy buy the giant James Gange card, those are sweet?

I voted for you guys last night, David. You guys should make the top 5 tonight.

Being a fan of old time radio shows I love the period as well. To quote one of your songs: They've reached back and made something old out of something new.

Also download their EP Big Daddys Wit Canes (there are explicit lyrics)

I made a edited version of your EP for him and he has been listening to it over and over since Tuesday. Even if you guys don't go on you've got a fan base, young and old.

Take Care

It was a bummer to see you guys go! I voted for you. I performed all over Harlem, (shout out 135th & Lenox) midtown and WSP in the village. You and my boys the Calypso Tumblers (from last year) should have gone way further. Too hip for the room. We get it because we're cosmopolitan hip…

Keep rockin'

I thought the concept was great. As much as I hate to agree with Piers, however, I think the vocals cost you on the last show.

I do think you are future headline material, though!
