Weekend Classics #3 – Zapp

Ooowwweeeeeee! Zapp, baby! One of main influences and inspiring artists for the whole West Coast Hi-Hop scene, especially G-Funk. This soul-funk band was formed in the late 70s, and remains to be one of the funkiest bands to play on your stereo. The band consisted of four brothers:  Larry, Roger, Lester and Terry Troutman, with Greg Jackson on keyboards and background vocals.

Shortly after meeting George Clinton, the band was able to strike a record deal with Warner Brothers, and released their first album in the summer of 1980. Immediately following its release they began opening up for acts such as Prince, The Commodores, and Kool and the Gang. Just five years later,1985, the group had scored five gold records, and had become a top concert draw all around the world.

Sit back, vibe-out, and enjoy the funkedelic-groove by ZAPP….That TALK BOX BABY!!!
