Probably the most charming group of the disco era, this outfit formed in the Bronx and fused 30s dance-band music with the disco sound of the 70s.  Others attempted to take disco in similar directions, but nobody pulled it off like this band.  While some songs clearly fit into the disco category, elements of the older styles are dominant in others.  It’s definitely one of a kind.
