On April 23, 2015 Atlanta’s own, BRICK was interviewed for the documentary “We Were Funky” by Rod Whittaker Executive Producer. BRICK put Atlanta on the map in 1976 with their smash hit, Dazz followed by the hit, Ain’t Gonna Hurt Nobody from their sophomore album BRICK in 1977. Hear their story about coming up in the 70’s Atlanta music scene, and their views on their music and music industry of today.
Jimmy Brown and Regi Hargas will share their views on such topics as, the live entertainment club scene, the musicians, the band concept, and the music industry. All topics will be discussed from a 70’s to present day perspective, in order to see the clear distinction between then and now. Furthermore, solutions to making Funk/R&B music popular again without the help of the big machine, will be discussed.
