“Trendin'” Live By The Original 7ven (Formerly The Time) Watch Now!

Here is the very first public performance of "Trendin'" by The Original 7ven aka The Band Formerly Known As The Time.

"Trendin' is the first single off new Album/CD "Condensate" by The Original 7ven, which just came out this past Tuesday.

They brought the funk to Club Nokia last night. This was also the first concert that the band went by the name The Original 7ven.

We had a good time last night but had to stop dancing to make sure we got some good video footage and photos for you.

Here is a closer look shot by Cody aka The Funky White Boy that has a more fuller sound and more footage of the band, as my camera was not picking up the bass.

Not sure why my camera did not pick up the bass in the mix as much but at least the footage is good. Perhaps can switch out sound later.-DocFB

When I ran into the Time in August, there was no mention of a name change. All they told me is that everything is coming together and its time, for them, to return.

In mid-September, it is announced they are now called The Original 7ven (The band Formerly Known As The Time) and have a new album, "Condensate" which is out now.  The Original 7ven consists of all the original members of The Time, Morris Day, Jimmy Jam. Terry Lewis, Jesse Johnson, Monte Moir, Jellybean Johnson, and Jerome Benton.

A member of The Time calls me about the name change.  "Ahh.  We got you on that, didn't we?  We were able to keep it a secret until we wanted it out there."
