LOS ANGELES…. IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN! THIXOTIX 8th Annual Mother’s Day Fashion Show Extravaganza featuring funk and soul group Cameo.
Produced by HollywoodT Production, this year’s theme is “THIX IN THE CITY 3 – A SOUL TRAIN SALUTE” with a 70’s Style Dress Code and the always exciting fashion show performance. In addition, there will be a SOUL TRAIN DANCE LINE CONTEST w/ Cash Prizes!
It only makes sense that Cameo highlights this yearly extravaganza. Known for such hits as “Candy”, “Word Up”, “Single Life” and others; as the late Don Cornelius would say, “it’s all gonna be a stone gas, honey.” Lawrence Ernest Blackmon (born May 24, 1956) is the lead singer and founder frontman of the funk and R&B band Cameo. The snare drum sound that Blackmon created for “Word Up!” and “Candy” was duplicated on releases by a wide range of artists throughout the years.
Starting the band “East Coast”, Blackmon and Tomi Jenkins formed the “New York City Players” as compliment to the Ohio Players. Having to rename the group due to a conflict, the band later called itself Cameo. Blackmon lived in Harlem and played drums on several hits for the band Black Ivory. He is the son of Lee Black, a former boxer. Along with his unique vocal style, Blackmon’s other personal touches included sporting an elaborate hi-top fade haircut and a codpiece over his pants. His signature “ow!” was used as the intro for some of the band’s songs.
Blackmon appeared as a backing vocalist on Ry Cooder’s 1987 album “Get Rhythm” and Cyndi Lauper’s 1989 album, A Night to Remember. He also had co-producer credits for Eddie Murphy’s 1989 album So Happy.
THIXOTIX 8th Annual Mother’s Day Fashion Show Extravaganza featuring Cameo takes place at The Warner Grand Theater located at 478 W 6th St, San Pedro, CA 90731.
