This spot is all about the music. Well mostly. Disco funk soul are the foundation for what we love. So get up get funky get loose, get up and get down, get back jack, throw your hands in the air and twist and shout then shimmy and shake!

1980 THE GAP BAND III

http://open.spotify.com/track/1V4d7eV4geOPtQr1Q6nBKN

"When Gap Band III came out in 1980, the Wilson Brothers were widely regarded as true heavyweights in the funk field. Many funk experts will tell you that creatively, they were right up there with the likes of Cameo, Rick James, the Isley Brothers, and the Bar-Kays in the early ’80s. Over the years, The Gap Band III (which was the group’s fifth album, not its third) has often been described as the ultimate Gap Band album — and it’s hard to disagree with that assertion. Produced by Lonnie Simmons, this exceptional album boasts three of the Wilson Brothers’ biggest radio hits: "Burn Rubber on Me" (a funk classic), the Parliament-minded "Humpin’," and the quiet storm slow jam "Yearning for Your Love." But The Gap Band III is also full of gems that weren’t big radio hits, including "Gash Gash Gash" (another funk classic), the perky, Earth, Wind & Fire-ish "Are You Living" and the ballad "Nothin’ Comes to Sleepers." There isn’t a dull moment on The Gap Band III, which is excellent from start to finish and is essential listening for funk addicts."

Whether it’s early Elvis, the Beatles, Tom Jones, Roy Orbison, or even Al Jolson, white people doing black music has always been a tried-and-true formula. Especially when white listeners have no idea they’re really listening to black music.
