Yarbrough & Peoples
Cavin Yarbrough and Alisa Peoples Yarbrough both started entertaining at an early age. Alisa’s early life musical experiences were in Gospel music – traveling, performing and attending workshops with such greats as James Cleveland and Mattie Moss Clark. She also performed with the Texas Northeast gospel Chorale Ensemble (a community choir), as well as her family group “The Peoples Singers”. Cavin followed his musical dreams after training in the church, and toured with Leon Russell, where he met Charlie Wilson and the Wilson Brothers (the Gap Band). Charlie Wilson later introduced Cavin & Alisa to Lonnie Simmons (Total Experience Records) who signed the duo to Total Experience Productions…and the story began.
The liaison between Yarbrough & Peoples (Y & P) & the Total Experience produced five (5) Albums, which housed top 10 singles such as “Guilty”, I Wouldn’t Lie to You and more! Y & P are most known for their 1981 smash hit, “Don’t Stop the Music” – which dominated the
R & B and Pop Charts, and was nominated for a Grammy Award. Y & P received several awards, including the Jack the Rapper award, and more recently – several BMI Awards for writing…and Doctorate of Divinity Degrees!
Y & P performed on many, many television shows as guest Artists and as judges, and more recently, had an episode on TV One’s UnSung…which drew phenomenal ratings!
Live performances connect Y & P with their fans and audiences. Their shows are very energetic and upbeat…yet never losing the intimacy shared with AWESOME Musicians!! Thrilling audiences all over the world, Y& P are timeless as they continue to perform in the US and abroad, performing in Concerts and Stage Plays …never stopping the music!
THE BAND BRICK
American Funk Since 1976
The Band BRICK, the tremendously talented platinum recording band, hails from Atlanta, Georgia. Formed in 1976 by lead guitarist Regi Hargis, BRICK created a successful merger of dance and jazz music for a unique sound we call “dazz.”
The Band BRICK recorded Music Matic for Main Street in 1976, before signing to CBS-distributed label Bang. Their first Bang single, Dazz, topped the R&B charts and was number three on the pop charts in 1976, and they continued on Bang until 1982. BRICK scored two more huge hits in 1977, Dusic and Ain’t Gonna Hurt Nobody, each with a chunky, propulsive and catchy beat, light pop-jazz refrain. BRICK’s last top ten R&B hit was Sweat (Til You Get Wet) in 1981.
