I heard this little fact on the radio one afternoon. Ohio, specifically Dayton, was home to some of the most successful funk bands of the 70s and 80s. There were strong band competitions every week and it fostered that creative environment (and horn sections that were ON POINT) – thus were born The Ohio Players, Slave, The Dazz Band, Lakeside, Heatwave, Sun and Zapp. So all week, get your groove on to Dayton’s finest!
The Ohio Players – Fire
Lakeside – Its All The Way Live
Slave – Just A Touch Of Love
Heatwave – Boogie Nights
