THE S.O.S. BAND
The band was initially famous for the hit "Take Your Time (Do It Right)" in 1980. In 1983, they joined forces with then new production team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who went on to craft a string of R&B hits for the group, including "Just Be Good to Me", "Tell Me If You Still Care", "Borrowed Love", "No One's Gonna Love You", "Just the Way You Like It" and "The Finest".
The trio was formed in 1986, in The Bronx, New York City. The original group members were Betty LeBron (lead vocals) and sisters Margie and Mari Fernandez. Originally on Next Plateau Records, in 1988, they were picked up by Atco and their debut album, Take It While It's Hot was released. Take It While It's Hot went to #63 on the Billboard pop albums chart and spawned five singles: "Hooked on You" (#23), "Victim of Love", "Take It While It's Hot", "Never Let You Go".
AL B. SURE
His debut album from 1988, In Effect Mode, sold more than two million copies, topping the Billboard R&B chart for seven straight weeks. The album included the single "Nite and Day," which topped the R&B chart and reached No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The Dazz Band is an American funk music band that was most popular in the early 1980s. Emerging from Cleveland, Ohio, the group's biggest hit songs include the Grammy Award-winning "Let It Whip" (1982), "Joystick" (1983), and "Let It All Blow" (1984).
J. J. Fad gained popularity with the new line-up that included rappers: MC J.B. (Juana Burns), Baby-D (Dania Birks), and Sassy C. (Michelle Franklin). Hailing from Los Angeles, California, the group were one of the original Ruthless Records acts signed by Eazy-E, and they sold 400,000 copies of their 1987 single "Supersonic".
Candyman’s stint atop the Hip Hop game was…well short but sweet. We all know Candyman’s song Knockin’ Boots, probably by heart. It hit in 1990, from his debut album Ain’t No Shame In My Game. For me, it was all over high school and school dances. Hip Hop was still a new thing for Fresno radio, but Knockin’ Boots sounded so radio friendly, stations played it heavily at night.
Brenton Wood is an American singer and songwriter known for his hit singles, "The Oogum Boogum Song" and "Gimme Little Sign".
