Their funky origins: formed in Dayton, Ohio (home to aviation pioneers and acclaimed funk duo The Wright Brothers), they started out as featured members of a band called Liquid Funk
Early singles displaying their love of the groove: “It’s All the Way Live” and “Pull My Strings”
The hit you know by heart: 1980’s “Fantastic Voyage”
Other artists who have performed “Fantastic Voyage,” albeit without nearly as much funk: Coolio, Cedric the Entertainer, and the cast of Johnson Family Vacation
The lineup: includes original members such as lead guitarist Stephen Shockley and drummer Fred Alexander, Jr.
Cherrelle: Her airy, emotion-packed soprano lit up the ’80s with jams such as “I Didn’t Mean to Turn You On,” and her frequent collaboration with Alexander O’Neal created the hits “Saturday Love” and “Never Knew Love Like This.”
Alexander O’Neal: With a voice as earnest and gritty as Otis Redding’s, this soul singer posted heart-tugging hits such as “If You Were Here Tonight” and “Love Makes No Sense” to the Top 40.
D. Elli$: The “Dallas King of Comedy” adds some levity as the evening’s host.
