Not hard!  Cameo all the way!  Larry Blackmon & crew keeping it all the way live.. I'm thinking they moved to Atlanta before it became super-trendy in the music biz..

I'll have to organize my ammo for the battle:

Word Up

I just want to be

Would have been great to see them collaborate with rappers more often.  Seems like the rise of hip-hop in the late 1980s coincided with the funk bands becoming marginalized on radio and with record companies-- but of course they all came back in some form or other..

I'm going with Cameo. I really liked the GAP Band, but Cameo had more songs I liked.
