The Trammps

Disco's most soulful vocal group began in the '60s as the Volcanos, and were also called the Moods. Gene Faith was the original lead vocalist, with Earl Young, Jimmy Ellis, guitarist Dennis Harris, keyboardist Ron Kersey, organist John Hart, bassist Stanley Wade, and drummer Michael Thomas. But by the time they'd gone through various identities and emerged as the Trammps in the mid-'70s, the lineup featured lead vocalist Ellis, Norman Harris, and Stanley Wade, Robert Upchurch and Young. A snappy revival of Judy Garland's '40s tune "Zing Went the Strings of My Heart" was their first chart single, reaching number 17 on the R&B list in 1972. Despite their well-deserved reputation and boisterous, jubilant harmonies and sound, the Trammps were never a huge commercial success even during disco's heyday. Indeed, they had only three R&B Top Ten hits from 1972 through 1978, and such wonderful records as "Soul Bones," "Ninety-Nine and a Half," and "I Feel Like I've Been Livin' (On the Dark Side of the Moon)" stiffed on the charts though they were beloved by club audiences and R&B fans alike. Their only huge hit was "Disco Inferno" in 1977, which was a number nine R&B single in 1977 and was also featured on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. Yet it missed the pop Top Ten, peaking at number 11. But the Trammps' prowess can't be measured by chart popularity; Ellis' booming, joyous vocals brilliantly championed the celebratory fervor and atmosphere that made disco both loved and hated among music fans. ~ Ron Wynn

That's Where the Happy People Go is a lost gem. Really gets me going.

They should really update this... They still have some of the original members including Stanley. Jimmy Ellis passed away a couple years back, God rest his beautiful soul. My dad, Michael Natalini, joined The Trammps in 1994 in time to do The Best of The Trammps & they currently still tour :)

Awesome memories, great times, being with my very special girl dancing to the Trammps, flashing, pulsating lights to the music, it was wonderful. Two children ,a mortgage, and many years later now married to that very special girl and when we hear this and many other Disco songs we still get up and dance. She still can take command of the dance floor and I love to watch her shake her grove thing. God blessed me with her and the world with Disco. Dance on!!

1977. Some Place Else, Night Club Cherry Hill, New Jersey, one of the homes of Jimmy Ellis and the Trammps. Saw them there three times they all somehow managed to all fit on the postage stamp size stage. Great memories. Thanks Mr. Ellis (RIP) and Trammps!

Don't read this because it actually works.You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in at least143 minutes when if done press F6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is scary cuz it actually works.
