Did you purchase a Vernon Reid guitar pick from any recent tour?

I want to reach out to all the folks who have purchased "Signed & Numbered Picks" from me over the last couple of years of Living Colour & Masque tours- I set up a special mail address - vernonsnumberedpicks@mac.com

What I want is for fans to send in pics of the picks so that I can keep track of the numbers and the emails of the owners-most of the people who wrote their email addresses in the logs after the shows are unreadable and I want to keep track and be able to get stuff out to people who win things.

You won't be added to mass e lists, all communication will be numbered pick related and that I'll only ask for a mailing address when necessary from individuals...


Here's what we have so far, please keep 'em coming in. We've sold numbered/autographed picks at Masque shows as well as Living Colour's Collideoscope tour and subsequent tours as well. Again, please send a photo of the pic and number, your name, and email address to :

Steve Jenkins/Vernon Reid/Tobias Ralph trio

Steve Jenkins, Vernon Reid, and Tobias Ralph are three musicians who are in the same musical universe but have never played together in this combination until now. One glance at some of the names in each person’s bio and one can see how much their musical backgrounds overlap. The music that these three make is an intense reflection of a vast array of influences ranging from funk, electronic music, jazz, metal, and free music.

Steve Jenkins has been involved with music since the age of three but found his instrument when he discovered the electric bass at age 13. In the fall of 2004, right before relocating to NYC, Steve released his first solo album; the critically acclaimed "mad science". Some of the musicians that he has performed or recorded with include : David Fiuczynski’s KIF, Screaming Headless Torsos, Vernon Reid, Masque, Ingrid Michaelson, Corey Glover, DJ Logic, Eric Krasno, Stephanie McKay, Adam Deitch, Steve Hunt, and current Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen.

Vernon Reid is probably best known for leading Living Colour. He founded Living Colour in New York City circa 1985 and piloted the band through a successful career that continues to this day. He also has a prolific session output in a variety of contexts. He has played live or on record with the Roots, Eye & I, Mick Jagger, Rollins Band, Spearhead, Public Enemy, Mariah Carey, Tracey Chapman, Ronald Shannon Jackson, Don Byron, Defunkt , Santana, Bernie Worrell, MC 900 Foot Jesus, B.B. King, Madalyne Peyroux, Meridiem, Jack Bruce, Terry Bozzio, and DJ Spooky among many others.

Tobias Ralph was born and raised in New York City. A child prodigy, Tobias began playing the drums at the age of 4 years. He has developed his own creative, innovative style as he has combined the influences of many different types of music.Tobias has toured the US, Europe and more with a wide variety of artists including: Michael Cavanaugh, Defunkt, Screaming Headless Torsos, Nena, Tony C and the Truth, 24-7 Spyz, Duncan Sheik and many others.
