Legendary American R&B and funk band, The Gap Band, rose to fame in the early 80s with hits such as “Early in the Morning,” “You Dropped a Bomb on Me,” “Outstanding,” and more. Their legendary music continues to live on in today’s pop culture with artists such as Snoop Dogg, Warren G, Nas and so many more sampling some of their biggest hits in addition to being featured on major motion picture soundtracks to movies such as Next Friday and I’m Gonna Git You Sucka. Mega Funkfest is just one stop of many on their 2019 revival.
Initially formed under the name Total Concept Unlimited, this funky and talented R&B group from LA was introduced to Motown Music Producer, Norman Whitfield who then renamed the band to Rose Royce and added the charismatic and ultra-talented Gwen Dickey to the group. They catapulted to fame after providing several songs to the comedy film “Car Wash,” and became icons in the R&B and pop music world. With songs like “I Wanna Get Next to You,” “I’m Going Down,” and “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore” the future of R&B was influenced with artists like Beyonce, Madonna, Patti LaBelle, Christina Aguilera and more covering their hit songs.
Soul Power Band has evolved into one of the hottest acts in the Metro-Phoenix area and has gained a tremendous base of loyal fans. This group brings you vintage soul, funk and R&B like never before heard in Phoenix and is ready to share their smooth vocal harmonies and tight rhythms at Mega Funk Fest.
