I love the back up singers. I thin they add a dimension to the vocals that most post-GD bands lacked. Lets face it, Phils vocals are rough, Bobbys are killer at times, and JKs prob got the best. I think the singers really allow harmonies and what not to occur.

Now, if they wrent there, I still thinkl the music would rock, but there be something missing from the vocals.

If they drop Sunshine and Jeff they'd better get another Keyboard player while their at it.
they will need someone to do the high end part's like Brent did

That's ridiculous. The keyboard player isn't going anywhere. You must have grabbed that out of thin air. You must have typed that on the wrong thread

Keep Jeff and Sunshine.
In fact, pull a song or two from Jeff's Box Set catalogue and let him lead. He would blow away the audience. I can think of several of his songs that would fit.

i haven't really heard the back up singers to much.........they need to turn bobby's mic up.......some how the sound needs to be carried to the back top of the venues....the sound isn't heavy up there.......Jk's allright.....he needs a push with back ups......some more force, give the songs strength again.... he seems kinda shy and soft......which is nice.......I think Phil likes a girls up there....Joan and Susan..........

Just to weigh in, I think the the singers fill in the sound nicely.

Phil sings well (I think) on the things he sings, but benefits from the background fill. So does Bob. I personally think that part of the reason these guys like this band is that the vocals are distributed. Let's face it, they are not 20, 30, or 40, and have spent- especially Bob - decades fronting vocals. Having some harmony behind them is both a nice touch musically and probably makes for a more gentle evening for them (and thus for US).

Not all change is good, but a lot of it actually IS.

I really like the back-up singers. I have a disc of GD songs done by Reggae artists, and I think it's Marcia Ball that does Row Jimmy so very beautifully. I'd like to hear Sunshine sing that one, reggae style. And I'm always down for some Motown!
