I would love a RW2C tour, with Cheme and a solid drummer. I know Robert needs to support his fam but the Greyboys always make me feel like he isn’t getting enough time to shine.

Karl Denson will be awesome! 20th Congress is working on their new CD – new music and also some great GBA favs. Robert Walter will shine cuz it is his band! It will be off the hook and I can’t wait!

Cheme was certainly slated but had changes to his schedule. Karl D is a great sub! Peace, love and funk… Barb

It ain’t 20th Congress without Cochemea!

Agreed. Wheres Cheme? He sounded great when i saw him with Sharon Jones a few months ago. I know it’s Robert Walters 20th Congress, but it would be lacking without Cheme. I guess he’s busy.
