Their Sound: a thick roux of unapologetic funk transformed into a musical gumbo thanks to the infusion of R&B, soul, and even disco
Their Roots: Originally formed as the 13-member New York City Players, the band soon pared down, adopted the name Cameo, and unleashed their debut stunner, 1977’s Cardiac Arrest.
Their Super Power: Aside from their ability to churn out one Top-20 hit after the next, and aside from every human’s natural ability to fly, Cameo has been able to crisscross genres and influence younger artists, making them trendsetters for nearly 40 years.
Their Leader: Larry Ernest Blackmon, whose nasally voice is instantly recognizable—especially when its urging you to “Throw your hands in the air” like it did throughout…
“Word Up!”: The group’s 1986 smash hit. It peaked at No. 6 on the pop charts back then, and today has more than 14 million views on Youtube, further affirming Cameo’s multi-generational appeal.
