Naughty by Nature


On July 17, 2015, Treach and Kaygee of Naughty by Nature performed at Bright House Field in Clearwater, Florida as part of the Clearwater Threshers Summer Concert Series.

I met Kaygee first. During the opening act, he walked right next to me to see the show. I recognized him immediately and asked him to sign my CD.
An employee of the Threshers saw that I was getting my CD signed and said he'd help me get Treach to sign it. A few minutes later the employee tells me to follow him. He leads me into the front office of the stadium where Treach and Kaygee are sitting, waiting their turn to go on stage.


Six months later, on January 30, 2016, Naughty by Nature returned to Florida, this time, it was all 3 members performing at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg, Florida. Before the show, I was able to get VinRock to sign my CD cover. Unfortunately, the pen didn't work out so well.


Naughty by Nature (Kaygee, Vin Rock, and Treach signed their self-titled Naughty by Nature CD.
