From the wiki: Rose Royce is an American soul and R&B band. The group is best known for several hit singles including “Car Wash,” “I Wanna Get Next to You,” “Wishing on A Star”, “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore” and “I’m Going Down“.
The Los Angeles-based group composed of Henry Garner (drums), Terral “Terry” Santiel (congas), Lequeint “Duke” Jobe (bass), Michael Moore (saxophone), Gwen Dickey (lead vocals), Kenny Copeland (trumpet, lead vocals), Kenji Brown (guitar, lead vocals), Freddie Dunn (trumpet), and Michael Nash (keyboards). The group began in the early 1970s, when members of several backup bands from the Watts and Inglewood areas of Los Angeles united under the name Total Concept Unlimited. In 1973, this collective toured England and Japan behind Motown soul star Edwin Starr. Starr introduced them to Norman Whitfield, Motown‘s ‘psychedelic shaman’ who was responsible for bringing a progressive funk-rock slant to the company, via such productions as Starr’s “War“, The Undisputed Truth‘s “Smiling Faces Sometimes” and The Temptations “Papa Was A Rolling Stone”.
