Sons of Soul

This group I’m about to bring on hails from Oakland , CA . I like them because they were able to do what these artists today have been unable to do, make timeless music. I’ve liked them since they hit the scene back in 1988 with the hit “Little Walter”. By now you must know I’m referring to the group, Tony Toni Tone which is comprised of brothers Dwayne and Raphael (Saadiq) Wiggins and cousin Timothy Christian.

Their music has managed to create some lasting memories for me, and hearing them is like seeing an old friend. So, let’s give a warm Rich House welcome to Tony, Toni, Tone’.

If you are wondering what happened to him, here is a little something to bring you up to date.

In 2003, most members of Tony! Toni! Toné! except for Saadiq were invited by Alicia Keys to guest on her album The Diary of Alicia Keys. The song that resulted from that session was called "Diary", and when it was released as a single in the fall of 2004, it gave them their first Top 10 US hit in eleven years. In 2005, Dwayne Wiggins became the band leader for the Weekends at the D.L. television show hosted by comedian D. L. Hughley, which airs on the Comedy Central cable network.

In 2006, the group reunited for the 'New Jack Reunion Tour'.
