First Choice is a female disco vocal group from Philadelphia that produced MAJOR hits such as “Dr. Love”, “Armed and Extremely Dangerous”, “Smarty Pants”, “The Player”, “Love Thang”, and “Let No Man Put Asunder”. They were signed to soul label Philly Groove Records, Gold Mine Records, and to disco label Salsoul Records in the U.S. They are one of the most significant disco groups of the 1970s, appearing on Soul Train in 1973, Soul Alive in 1977, The Midnight Special in 1979, and New American Bandstand 1965 in 1979. Their music has appeared in countless films and is frequently sampled. It has been mixed by great masters such as Tom Moulton, Shep Pettibone, Walter Gibbons, and Frankie Knuckles. Active members are Ursula Herring, Annette Guest, Wardell Piper, and Rochelle Fleming (founder). First Choice continues to perform in the States and Worldwide.
Tavares (also known as The Tavares Brothers) is a Disco, R&B, Funk, and Soul music group composed of five Cape-Verdean-American brothers. Born and raised in Providence, RI, they would later move to New Bedford, MA. They started performing as children in 1959 as Chubby and the Turnpikes, and signed with Capitol Records in 1967. By 1973, they had changed their name to Tavares and scored their first R&B Top 10 hit with “Check it Out”; and 1974 had a #1 R&B hit with Hall & Oates’ “She’s Gone”. They continued with a string of hits with 1975 turning out to be their most successful year chart-wise, with a Top 40 Pop album “In The City”, and their biggest hit, the #1 R&B song “It Only Takes a Minute”, followed by “Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel” 1976, “Don’t Take Away the Music” 1976, and “Whodunit” 1977. In 1977 they appeared on the soundtrack to the film Saturday Night Fever recording the Bee Gees song “More Than a Woman”. The soundtrack became one of the most successful in history, giving Tavares their only Grammy Award. Tavares was inducted into the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame in 2014. Active members of Tavares continue to perform in the States and Worldwide.
