MotorCity Casino Hotel to Welcome The Ohio Players, 3/6
MotorCity Casino Hotel has announced The Ohio Players, at Sound Board on Thursday, March 6 at 8:00 p.m.
In 1959, legendary funk band The Ohio Players began in Dayton, OH as the Ohio Untouchables, led by vocalist/lead guitarist Leroy "Sugarfoot" Bonner - one of R&B's most unique vocal stylists. Combining the genres of funk, rock, jazz and soul the group crafted a new sound, one that would be best described as "Street Funk" -a music that would eventually pave the way for the success of both Rap and Hip Hop. The Ohio Players emerged as one of the top American funk and R&B bands in the mid-70's with No. 1 hits like "Fire" and "Love Rollercoaster" and has been providing fans with musical hits ever since.
