    Maceo Musiciology Webcast #28 - Dayton Funk '76-'80






    "Detroit, Memphis, Philadelipha, Minneapolis, Seattle
    and others all had turns as a musical centers of a 'sound.'  
    From 1976 to 1980, Dayton, Ohio was
    the Funk Capital of the World"





    Dayton, Ohio, the small industrial city of approximately 200,000 people located 50 miles north of Cincinnati, produced a series of popular funk bands with a string of national hits during the 1970s. Dayton?s Black community, in the 1960s and 70s, had a rich night life with numerous bars, clubs, and after-hours establishments. Street-wise tales drawing from experiences in the places like the Astro House, Fat Daddy's, and the Ebony club frequently surfaced in the lyrical content of Dayton's first nationally-renowned funk band, the Ohio Players.

    During the 1970s, industries such as a Chrysler plant, the Harrison Radiator factory, and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base provided a stable income base for a population that was roughly 50 percent African-American. From this base came high-school bands who sought the stardom first achieved by the founders of Dayton funk, the Ohio Players. Their number one pop hits “Fire” (1974) and “Love Rollercoaster” (1975) set a standard for local bands to aspire to, and six different record labels had signed Dayton bands by 1978.

    The Ohio Players, Lakeside, Slave (featuring Steve Arrington), Heatwave, Sun, Faze-O, Zapp (featuring Roger) and Wood Brass & Steel all claimed Dayton as their home. Members of these bands were recent high school graduates in the early 1970s and relatively new as professional musicians, having received formal and informal musical training in Dayton?s public schools and social networks with older musicians.

    These bands were among the most prolific hit makers of the era, compiling more than 110 charting rhythm-and-blues singles between 1972 and 1988. Dayton funk bands all featured dance music with an emphasis on heavy bass, aggressive rhythms, complex horn arrangements, ensemble vocals, and showstopping choreography.

    Slave, which had strong ties to the Ohio Players, scored a national hit with “Slide” in 1977 and continued to make hits through 1983. Crosstown rival Lakeside moved to Los Angeles before striking it big with “It’s All the Way Live” in 1978. Keith and Johnnie Wilder developed their band, Heatwave, while stationed in West Germany and returned to the United States with a global hit, “Boogie Nights,” in 1977. Roger Troutman and his band, Zapp, lasted into the 1990s with a slick, high-tech sound and dynamic show.

    The Dayton crew are currently winging their way in my door, they are taking their time though. So much funk would carry some added baggage. lol!

    OOOHHH GOODIE!!!
    More bounce to the ounce...
    Slave were a favourite from my 6th form days due to their phenomenal Santana type guitar sounds.. Zapp - we used to play them in Our Price in Slough ( this was around the "Parade " Era as the P singles were in heavy rotation too..
    Heatwave - yup, "Boogie Nights" has wormed it's self into my cortex, the others... well, new to me is good to me.. Thanks Maceo..

    By the time I had started webcasting, Maxim had already posted 3 Masters of Funk webcasts.


    His includes the long version of Zapp, so the short version is included here. Might be one other duplication with that series, but seem unfair to penalize the salute to Dayton.

    Another great podcast Maceo, how do you do it?

    There is only one and Mace2theO be his name.

    Wonderful mix of funk, slow funk and cool funk.

    On reading this I wanted to pimp my ride, take a trip into town, grow some hair, sit back and relax and whack out this podcast.

    I never really know much about Zapp until now, very groovy.

    Sun and the Ohio Players are newish to me too. I heard of them but did not really get to hear them until now.
    I am going to take a 3rd listen and chill in the kitchen with some Gumbo Greased Chicken.

    A comment like this every now and then is the fuel that feeds the webcasting engine. Thanks CK
    Turning someone on to a new song, jam or artist is what makes it fun

    I know exactly what you mean. The lack of comments also throw water on the fire.

    Strange the effect of da fonk... around here, we're all suffering from spontaneous flaring of the trouser and the widening of the shirt collar, not to mention the st Vitus dance of the body reacting to the fonky beats... afro

    The effect on me, after listening to it on the bus, is that I wanted to come home, run upstairs and plug in the guitar and funk! Cool

    Unfortanuately the children were home already, so I ended up watching Mary Poppins while reading In The Night Garden books ... ... ...

    One day!

    I'm definitely in the mood for trying another one chord funk vamp!
