BRICK, is 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.
