Yarbrough and Peoples was an American R&B duo from Dallas, Texas. Their biggest selling release was “Don’t Stop the Music”, a US Billboard R&B chart topper in 1981.
Cavin Yarbrough and Alisa Peoples, both grew up in Dallas. They knew each other since they were children, as they had met taking piano lessons. They remained friends throughout their childhood.
Yarbrough met the Wilson brothers while on tour in the band of Leon Russell. He returned to Dallas, and started a band (Grand Theft), of which he and Peoples were the lead singers and keyboardists. In 1977, the Wilson brothers (who had just joined Total Experience Records as the Gap Band) went down to Dallas to perform a concert, and saw Yarbrough and Peoples, who were performing at a club in Dallas.
