The BlackbyrdsVisit Website
The Blackbyrds are one of the pioneers of jazz funk and smooth jazz who were a major influence on generations of musicians and bands around the world. They came together almost 50 years ago as Howard University students under the guidance of their music professor, the late great jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd, who also became their manager and producer. They created a unique jazz funk sound combined with soulful harmonies that made a big impact on the music charts in the 1970s.
The Blackbyrds biggest hit songs were "Walking In Rhythm", their Grammy nominated million selling smash hit on both the R&B and pop charts, "Happy Music", an uplifting party anthem that was their biggest R&B hit, and "Rock Creek Park", their most beloved song known for its infectious groove and famous verse “doin’ it in the park, doin’ it after dark, oh yeah…Rock Creek Park!” Among their other hit songs were "Do It Fluid", "Flying High", "Time Is Moving", "Soft And Easy" and "Supernatural Feeling."
The Blackbyrds are still touring around the world with original core members as well as new members led by original drummer Keith Killgo. Their crowd pleasing performance features all of their most popular songs plus those by their late mentor Donald Byrd including "Black Byrd". "Flight Time" and "(Fallin' Like) Dominoes." Don't miss the opportunity to experience this legendary band!
