New Photos from The Faragher Brothers Concert at the Roxy, Spring 1976

January 17, 2013 in Events, Happenings, Uncategorized

banner_faragher_brothers_play_Roxy_live_1976

New photos have emerged of The Faragher Brothers at their 1976 concert with Rufus featuring Chaka Khan. These photos were taken by Keith Johnston, who was the owner of Brothers Studio in Redondo Beach where The Faragher Brothers rehearsed and later recorded.

“It was an exciting night for music,” says Danny, “Diana Ross was dancing in the balcony.”

Coming right off the heals of their performance on Soul Train, in which they were the first all-white act, the concert culminated about 2 and a half years worth of work and kicked off a national tour. Performing many of the tunes from their self-titled “Yellow Album” (what it came to be known as), the Faragher Brothers wowed the crowd with their unique blend of blue-eyed soul and bottom shaking bass grooves. From the raw sensuality of Give it Up to the heart-felt yearning of Never Get Your Love Behind Me, the brothers proved they could deliver live sets that were as much in-the-pocket as their album material.

Playing live that night were the four brothers, Jimmy, Tommy, Davey and Danny Faragher on percussion, piano, bass and organ, respectively, with additional backing by Chuck Crews on guitar and Mouse Johnson on drums.

“We were excited to unveil our sound,” remarks Danny, “We really thought we had something special and we wanted to let the world know we were here!”

It was truly a night to remember.

 

 

Be sure to be on the look out for an upcoming interview with  Jimmy and Danny Faragher, who also be performing live February 17th at 1:30-4:00 pm on Cold Cuts with DJ Tibonious, KCSB 91.9 FM radio out of Santa Barbara,

Stay tuned for more information.

 

Special thanks to Keith Johnston for providing the photos,
and to Bryan Faragher for photo retouching the images.
