18marAll DayThe Dazz Band and Tom Browne

Event Details

The Cleveland-based Dazz Band was one of the more popular funk groups of the early ’80s. The original concept for the group was “danceable jazz”; which was shortened to description of “dazz,” but the band veered away from the more melodic pop-oriented dance music and started playing a tougher, more groove-oriented funk – and the Dazz Band began racking up the hits. “Let It Whip,” taken from their second album Keep It Live (1982), reached number five and won a Grammy Award for Best Performance by an R&B Vocal Duo or Group. The Dazz Band had a string of six consecutive Top 100 albums and scored two other Top 100 singles, “Joystick” and “Let It All Blow.”

Tom Browne scored two major hits in 1980 and 1981: the No. 1 US Billboard R&B single “Funkin’ for Jamaica (N.Y.)” and the No. 4 US R&B single, “Thighs High (Grip Your Hips and Move)”. With over three decades of recordings and sharing the concert stage with luminary figures of jazz music, Tom Browne continues to captivate listeners as an entertainer who has successfully mixed stage presence and musical artistry with a sincere audience connection and warmth. “People don’t just come to hear your music,” says Browne, “they come to connect with you!”
