Emerald, Sapphire and Gold, better known as ESG, the trio of sisters from the South Bronx in New York, reunited for a special show on September 23, 2009 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, supporting New York darlings the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.ESG were pioneers in the 1980s of fat beats and lush grooves that eventually would be sampled for decades to come by the elite in hip-hop such as the Beastie Boys, Tricky and Wu-Tang Clan.  A fun fact about ESG: they were produced by Joy Division’s producer Martin Hannett.  Just a few nights ago, they played their first show since 2007 and the crowd in New York City was sure glad to have them back!
