"The Family Stone" carries on the legacy and the music of "Sly and the Family Stone." They joined us on "Bridge Street" before their show at Chevy Court. And they offered up an a capella version of one of the group's best known hits, "Everyday People."
The group has been honored by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Grammy Hall of Fame, and Billboard's "500 Greatest Songs of All Time." Their hits include such classics as "Thank You (Falletinme Be Mice Elf Again)," "Dance to the Music," and "Hot Fun in the Summertime."
The group is acknowledged as rock music's first fully integrated band, interracial and mixed gender. Founding members Jerry Martini and Gregg Errico are still at it after 50 years. Now, they're joined by Phunne Stone, daughter of two other founding members... Sylvester "Sly" Stewart and Cynthia Robinson, along with Blaise Sison, Nate Wingfield, Swang and Jimmy McKinney.
