Morris Day and The Time are back

To quote from the Flamingo website:
The greatest party band of all-time is back! The Time have reunited for the first time in 20 years and is set to explode back onto the scene with an extended summer engagement at the fabulous Flamingo Las Vegas.

Are they best-known for their irresistible hits, their outrageous stage performances or their many collaborations with Prince? Whatever the answer, this streetwise funk band is nothing short of legendary.

Lead singer Morris Day will reunite with original Time bandmates Jerome Benton, Jellybean Johnson, Jesse Johnson, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, and Monte Moir, performing hits like “Jungle Love,” “Get It Up,” “Jerk Out” , "Cool," and “The Bird.”...

IIRC, Jellybean was at the Santa Fe gig Monday night. He got a set of Santa Fe CDs.
