Ricky Dillard & New G (2013)
A long, but memorable evening ensued as New G (with superior musicianship coming from a well assembled band fronted by Rick Robinson "and nem") sang its way down memory lane. The choir was elegantly dressed in silver and black. A slew of former lead singers were positioned for "pass the mic" opportunities including Steve Jones, Keshia McFarland and Bridgette Campbell and the choir, captained by its very capable leader, launched into their hits. Among them were "More Abundantly", "The Promise", "Things Will Work Out (for me)", "If You Miss Me" and "There Is No Way" (getting a little help from Pastor Leandria Johnson).
Cheering the choir on from the audience were Dillard's peers in the industry, namely Dr. Bobby Jones, Byron Cage, Donald Lawrence, James Hall and Lexi.
Chicago came out in full strength to show their support. Among the ranks were Mark Hubbard, Bryant Jones, Dexter Walker, Malcolm Williams, Cinque
AND there was new music!!! Now, some things you'll just have to wait for. But be sure to look out for "You're Amazing" and a stellar performance from Ms. Tiff Joy. Lastly (and as everyone knows), there can't be a Ricky Dillard project without a shout. Trust and believe it has been duly covered. It's called "Everything", and we can only pray that the CD will allow you to experience the pandemonium that broke out as a result of the song being sung on that night.
Conclusion? Job well done by Ricky Dillard and New G. We can't wait to see what the second 25 years will have in store.
Special thanks to Jason McCoy Photography for capturing the very essence of the evening in pictures.
