The Legendary Intruders Onstage in Harlem

By Deardra Shuler

On Friday, December 10, the Legendary Intruders got the fans on their feet dancing the night away at the St Marks Church on 138th Street, off Lennox Avenue in Harlem.

The thrill of hearing the group perform prompted the ladies in the audience to yell out their names and asking just to touch their singing idols as Legendary Intruders Mac McKenzie, Lee Bradley, Jubar Jones and Johnny Waiters (aka LJ) sang their hits "I Wanna Know Your Name,"Cowboys to Girls," and "I'll Always Love My Mama," among others.

Wine, sodas, fried chicken and macaroni and potato salads graced the tables of audience members who came out to eat and be entertained and it seemed by their reaction they were sated both musically and gastronomically.

Before the night ended, Legendary Intruder Jubar Jones and Johnny Waiters bowed to customer requests at the legendary Harlem jazz spot "Showmans" on 125th Street off Morningside and St. Nicholas Avenues)by singing "Rainy Night in Georgia" and "Since I Fell For You." In fact, so impressed were the owners they engaged the Legendary Intruders to perform at the club in May 2011. We may also catch the group at the world famous Apollo Theatre in May as well.

Fans of the Legendary Intruders can also catch them at the Martin Luther King Jr. celebration on January 15, 2011 at the renowned Paradise Theatre in the Bronx. Once the date is confirmed, Boston fans may catch the singers performing during the February 12th Valentine Day weekend. Further info to be announced.
