The Lincolns (jazz, blues, rock)

The Lincolns are a rhythm and blues band, fronted by Prakash John and based in Toronto, Ontario. The band performs music in the style of the 1960s and 1970s. In 1979, after leaving the Alice Cooper tours, Prakash John returned to Toronto and founded an R&B band, The Lincolns. He recruited musicians from previous tours. The Lincolns performed locally in Toronto and also toured around Ontario. The band has released two albums, Take One on Attic Records and the independently released Funky Funky Funky, originally commissioned by the CBC. With various personnel changes, the Lincolns continue to play around Canada, performing R&B music in the style of the 1960s and 70s.
