Cameo is an American funk and soul outfit hailing from New York City, New York. Formed in 1974, the group currently consists of Larry Blackmon, Tomi Jenkins, Anthony Lockett, Aaron Mills, and Charlie Singleton, though originally Cameo performed as a 13-piece band, and boasts a lengthy list of former members.
Originally started as the New York City Players, Cameo would sign their first deal with Casablanca Records imprint Chocolate City, and went on to put out a load of singles, albums, and recordings via the label. However, it was their deal with Atlanta Artists that saw them go big time.
Today, Cameo are best recognised for their 1986 LP ‘Word Up!’, which features their hit single of the same name and Candy. Reaching Top 10 both sides of the pond and earning them a platinum disc, it is still regarded as one of the most popular R&B/funk tracks of all time, having been covered by artists ranging from Korn to Mel B, and Gun to Little Mix.
Years later and the band are still performing to this day, albeit with a different line-up, and are making a return to the UK for a special, one-off Valentine’s Day performance in London’s Indigo2 in 2015. Check below to get your tickets - make sure you grab them before they inevitably sell out!
