Barenaked Ladies

Genre:RockDemo:25-35,35-50

Barenaked Ladies

  Toronto, Canada's quirky popsters Barenaked Ladies were never ones to follow a trend. They were more interested in making someone laugh than being astute and serious. Most of all, a friendship consumed this band, and that bond cemented their place in alternative rock.   Teenage friends Ed Robertson and Steven Page found themselves laughing at the innocent and childlike term "barenaked lady" while atte...

Ben Folds

Genre:RockDemo:25-35,35-50

Ben Folds

Singer/pianist Ben Folds (born September 12, 1966, in Winston-Salem, NC) is best-known as the leader of the power pop trio Ben Folds Five, but has also struck out on his own as a solo artist. Despite playing in bands in high school, his musical career didn't really get off the ground until the late '80s, as a bassist for Majosha (the outfit issued such obscure releases as Party Night: Five Songs About Jesus and Shut Up and Listen to Majosha). Proving ...

Beverly Lee's Shirelles

Genre:50's & 60'sDemo:35-50

Beverly Lee's Shirelles

The Shirelles were the first major female vocal group of the rock era, defining the so-called girl group sound with their soft, sweet harmonies and yearning innocence. Their music was a blend of pop/rock and R&B -- especially doo wop and smooth uptown soul -- that appealed to listeners across the board, before Motown ever became a crossover phenomenon with white audiences. Even if the Shirelles were not technically the first of their kind, their success w...

Bill Haleys Comet's

Genre:50's & 60'sDemo:50 +

Bill Haleys Comet's

Bill Haley is the neglected hero of early rock & roll. Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly are ensconced in the heavens, transformed into veritable constellations in the rock music firmament, their music respected by writers and scholars as well as the record-buying public, virtually every note of music they ever recorded theoretically eligible for release. And among the living rock & roll pioneers, Chuck Berry is given his due in the music marketplace and ...

Burt Bacharach

Genre:Adult ContemporaryDemo:35-50,50 +

Burt Bacharach

With a hit-single track record spanning four decades, Burt Bacharach became one of the most important composers of popular music in the 20th century, almost equal to such classic tunesmiths as George Gershwin or Irving Berlin. His sophisticated yet breezy productions borrowed from cool jazz, soul, Brazilian bossa nova, and traditional pop to virtually define and undoubtedly transcend the staid forms of Brill Building adult pop during the 1960s. ...

Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm

Genre:Classic R&B / FunkDemo:50 +

Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm

Famed for their oft-sampled 1970 classic "Express Yourself," Charles Wright & the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm was among the pivotal forces behind soul music's metamorphosis into funk. Wright was born in Clarksdale, MS, in 1940; his family relocated to Los Angeles a dozen years later, and there he began performing with a number of local doo wop groups, eventually becoming a protégé of singer Jesse Belvin. After learning to play gu...

Chicago

Genre:Adult ContemporaryDemo:35-50,50 +

Chicago

According to Billboard chart statistics, Chicago is second only to the Beach Boys as the most successful American rock band of all time. Chicago's roots can be traced back to DePaul University, when a gaggle of music students began playing a series of late-night jams at clubs around campus. The band featured several incredible instru...

Chuck Jackson

Genre:Classic R&B / FunkDemo:35-50,50 +

Chuck Jackson

He's relatively forgotten today, and his brand of uptown soul is dismissed by the relatively vocal clique of critics who prefer their soul deep and down-home. But Chuck Jackson was a regular visitor to the R&B charts (and an occasional one to the pop listings) in the early '60s with such early pop-soul concoctions as "I Don't Want to Cry," "Any Day Now," and "Tell Him I'm Not Home." His records were very much ...

Chuck Yeager

Genre:CelebritiesDemo:35-50,50 +

Chuck Yeager

Chuck Yeager is unquestionably the most famous test pilot of all time. He won a permanent place in the history of aviation as the first pilot ever to fly faster than the speed of sound, but that is only one of the remarkable feats this pilot performed in service to his country. Charles Elwood Yeager was born in 1923 in Myra, West Virginia and grew up in the nearby village of Hamlin. Immediately upon graduation from High School he enlisted i...

Cranberries

Genre:RockDemo:35-50

Cranberries

Combining the melodic jangle of post-Smiths indie-guitar pop with the lilting, trance-inducing sonic textures of late-'80s dream pop and adding a slight Celtic tint, the Cranberries became one of the more successful groups to emerge from the pre-Brit-pop U.K. indie scene of the early '90s. Led by vocalist Dolores O'Riordan, whose keening, powerful voice is the most distinctive element of the group's sound, the group initially made little impac...

Cyndi Lauper

Genre:Adult ContemporaryDemo:35-50

Cyndi Lauper

Cyndi Lauper was one of the biggest stars of the early MTV era, selling five million copies of her debut album, She's So Unusual, as well as scoring a string of four Top Ten hits from the record, including the major hits "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" and "Time After Time." Lauper's thin, girlish voice and gleefully ragtag appearance became one of the most distinctive images of the early '80s, which helped lead her not only to t...

Danny & the Juniors

Genre:50's & 60'sDemo:50 +

Danny & the Juniors

Danny & the Juniors shot straight to the top of the charts in early 1958 with their biggest hit ever, the gold-selling "At the Hop" (penned by the songwriting team of Dave White and John Madara), though they reached the charts again with eight more singles through 1963, notably the Top 40 charters "Rock and Roll Is Here to Stay," "Dottie," and "Twistin' U.S.A." Danny Rapp (lead tenor), Frank Maffei (s...
