While the rappers tend to get all the credit, Hip-Hop music - particularly the southern kind, which relies heavily on live instrumentation, doesn't get made without the work of musicians like the ones that make up Whild Peach. Among other recordings, Khujo Goodie/Joi/Cool Breeze/Lil' Will/Goodie Mob, the group has graced Outkast's backing tracks for years and they've served as the live band on the Hip-Hop duo's tours. Wild Peach has also performed on their own over the last few years opening for Erica Badu, Goodie Mob, Ohio Players, War and Fishbone. This Soul-Rock, Slam-Down group's tight ensemble includes guitarist/vocalist David Whild, fhunktress/lead vocalist Peach, drummer Tuesday Henderson, bassist Blu Gomes, guitarist Matt Hollums and keyboardist/vocalist Hezekiah Nixon.

I cannot possibly say enough about Whild Peach. They were absolutely incredible! I can't tell you how many people have come up to me to tell me what a good time they had and that Whild Peach was hands down the best band they've ever seen at Princeton. I personally got to spend a little bit of time with a few members of the band and they were all so much fun, nice and easy to work with, so please pass along a personal thank you to them from me. Again, this email does not even scratch the surface of telling you how great everything was yesterday! If they are ever going to be back in the area, please let me know--I would absolutely LOVE to get them back here again. - Cheryl S.
