Familiar Faces (#TeamFamiliar) was formed in 2001 through the vision and leadership of legendary Go-Go great, Donnell Floyd. Known as the premiere “Grown & Sexy Band” of the DMV, they have quickly risen to one of the hottest bands on the scene. They have performed with the likes of national recording artist greats, such as Montell Jordan, Tony Terry, Fantasia, Marsha Ambrosius, R. Kelly, Raheem DeVaughn and Melanie Fiona. They are the hosts of the wildly popular Go-Go Miami – an annual party that shuts down South Beach with exclusive live performances and parties.
Familiar Faces’ chemistry is powered by the Go-Go legends that make up the band, many of whom have fronted their own bands. With serious vocal talent, a full horn section, and intense pocket beats, Familiar Faces is versatile enough to move from jazz and pop to hip-hop oriented go-go crank. The band lineup includes: Donnell Floyd – vocals/saxophone; Frank “Scooby” Marshall – vocals/guitar; Jeffery “Jammin Jeff” Warren – drums; Marquis “Quisy” Melvin – vocals; Kimberly “Kim Michelle” Graham – vocals; Derek “DP” Paige, Sr. – trumpet/vocals; Jasen “O” Holland – trumpet/vocals; Byron “BJ” Jackson – keyboards; Mike Arnold – keyboards; Sean Geason – bass; Eric “Bojack” Butler – percussion; and Milton “Go-Go Mickey” Freeman – congas.
Always in demand, still familiar, and still spectacular, Familiar Faces is here to keep the party going. The group’s latest project celebrates the contributions of D. Floyd, The King of the GoGo Beat, to the Go-Go industry. D. Floyd’s 30th Anniversary is available on CD and DVD at http://familiarfaces.org/shopping/music/.
