Neil Brathwaite Group ( NBG - Not Bad Guys) is led by Neil "Bee" Brathwaite on tenor sax and soprano with Eric Boucher on piano, Fender Rhodes and organ, Clark Johnston on bass and Ben Riley on drums.
The history of this group dates back to their many years playing together as the regular Monday night house band for a Soul Food/Caribbean restaurant in downtown Toronto called Harlem Underground. Unfortunately in 2019 the restaurant closed its doors but the vibes that echoed through those walls every Monday night are still alive and captured in their debut album titled "Bee Thankful". It features 12 original compositions written by the leader Neil Brathwaite and an interesting cover of the Blondie classic "Rapture".
