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 Records. Their first Bang single “Dazz” was #1 on the R&B charts and was #3 on the pop charts in 1976. BRICK scored two more huge hits in 1977 “Dusic” and “Ain’t Gonna Hurt Nobody” each with a chunky, propulsive and catchy beat with a pop-jazz refrained sound. Brick’s last top ten R&B hit was “Sweat (Til You Get Wet)” released in 1981.
BRICK’S current members include Regi Hargis lead and rhythm guitar, lead and background vocals; Jimmy Brown lead and background vocals, alto sax, trombone, trumpet and flute; Eric Florence, bass guitar; and Victor Alexander, drums and percussion.
BRICK has received gold and platinum albums for their hit records: “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 and introducing funk music to a new generation. The group have 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. Planned for 2018 BRICK will record a Live performance album of some of their greatest hits.
