CAMEO CELEBRATES MORE THAN 33 YEARS of FUNK!
Cameo topped the R&B charts for more than a decade, and has sold more than 17 million albums; and Cameo is one of the most popular Funk/ Rock and Soul bands of its era! Line-ups change, styles evolve, and record labels merge, but Cameo has maintained its core funkiness for nearly four decades.
From the seventies through today, CAMEO has been churning out trailblazing hits. The group’s pivotal sounds are a part of music history. Cameo has permanently marked major turning points in music and set the standard that many have tried to duplicate and follow.
Now, CAMEO’s creator and producer; Larry Blackmon, along with founding member Tomi Jenkins, is once again ready to challenge the way the world listens to music! CAMEO is ready to introduce a new generation to their Music.
The New York City-based band, led by drummer Larry Blackmon, debuted with a single called "Find My Way" on Chocolate City Records, (a label managed by Cecil Holmes through Casablanca Records). Larry Blackmon has been synonymous with CAMEO since the beginning of his career in the music industry, growing up in New York City, and digesting the sounds of the city streets. The kind of non-stop activity that Blackmon creates has consistently propelled the across-the-board success that CAMEO has enjoyed for over three decades. Blackmon & Jenkins posses a creative determined mind, spirit and dedication to MUSIC! This team is unstoppable!
