Raphael Saadiq @ Terminal 5

A group of us came out on Friday night to see Raphael Saadiq at Terminal 5 in NYC. An R&B legend, Saadiq was part of the late 80's group Tony! Toni! Toné!.

Of all the shows we've seen this year, this was by far the absolute best. The crowd was really into the music and the performance was amazing. These photos were taken in the middle and end of the performance, but when they appeared on stage, Saadiq and the entire band were fitted in extremely well-tailored suits. It reminded me of what it would have been like seeing the Temptations or The Spinners in their hayday.

I'm a big fan of Motown music and I had a great time seeing a performace filled with so much talent and energy. It was really inspiring.

For more information on Saadiq, visit his website or check out his latest album, The Way I See It.
