BRICK, the tremendously talented platinum recording band, hails from Atlanta, Georgia. Formed in 1976 by lead guitarist Regi Hargis, BRICK created a successful merger of dance and jazz music for a unique sound we call “Dazz.”
BRICK recorded “Music Matic” for Main Street Records in 1976, before signing to CBS-distributed record label Bang. Their first Bang single “Dazz” was #1 on the R&B charts and was #3 on the pop charts in 1976, and they continued on Bang until 1982. Brick scored two more huge hits in 1977, “Dusic” and “Ain’t Gonna Hurt Nobody”, each with a chunky, propulsive, catchy beat and light pop-jazz refrain. BRICK’s last top ten R&B hit was “Sweat (Til You Get Wet)” in 1981.
BRICK’S members include Jimmy Brown - lead and background vocals, alto sax, trombone, trumpet and flute; Founder Regi Hargis - lead and rhythm guitar, lead and background vocals; Jyrin Cox - keyboards; Eric Florence- bass guitar; for the past 20 years Victor Alexander - drums and percussion, newest members Terri Brown - background vocals and Rod Lawrence keys and organ.
BRICK has received gold and platinum albums for their hits: “Dazz”, “Ain’t Gonna Hurt Nobody”, “Dusic”, “That’s What It’s All About”, “We Don’t Wanna’ Sit Down (We Wanna Get Down)”, “Push Push”, “Happy”, “Honey Chile”, and “Sweat (Til You Get Wet)” which were all recorded on the Bang/CBS record label.
BRICK still performs around the world to thousands of loyal fans. The group has performed with many major artists including Frankie Beverly & Maze, The Bar-Kays, Cameo, The Gap Band, Isley Brothers, Lionel Richie, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, The O’Jays and Quincy Jones just to name a few.
