According to Ozzfest.com, WICKED WISDOM — the five-piece band featuring actress Jada Pinkett Smith (wife of Will Smith) — has been confirmed as the final “mystery act” on the second stage of this year’s Ozzfest.
The band, which includes “Pocket” on guitar, “Rio” on bass, Cameron Graves on keys, Satnam Ramgotra on drums, and Jada performing the lead vocals, reportedly has a rock edge with a slight metal influence. Background singers Devin Vasquez and La Shanda Dendy are said to be “a perfect complement” to Jada’s strong persona.
