This seminal New York City funk and disco band, now in its fourth decade of performing, is responsible for driving hits like “Backstrokin’, “Gotta Get My Hands on Some (Money),” and “King Tim III (Personality Jock),” which is considered by many to be the first-ever rap recording. Legendary drummer Bill “Fatback” Curtis is the group’s indomitable leader, propelling horns, guitar, bass, and background vocals with “street funk” beats inspired by rhythms from New Orleans and the Caribbean alike.
