Turn It Up Tuesday!

Bump City, Baby!

Some days, only Emilio and the Funky Doctor can scratch my musical itch (not to mention with Rocco driving the bus). If you can listen to this and sit still, check your pulse!


Since DaGoddess has has already snagged the “Two-fer Tuesday” moniker, I thought I’d start “Turn It Up Tuesdays” here. Something to break up the heavy discussions and lighten the load. I’ve also created a new category so you can check all the “Turn It Up Tuesday” posts in one place. Enjoy!

    I saw TOP a couple times back in the early 70s at Winterland. Looks and sounds like they’ve still got it. I sure love those horns……. the TOP wall of sound. Thanks for posting and great idea buddy! :-)

    I was wondering about how many members in the current line-up are from the original band. It looks like quite a few…… a rarity for such a large ensemble that has been in existence for over 40 years.

      5 of the 10 current members were founding members of the band; 3 of the horn section (Emilio Castillo, Stephen “The Funky Doctor” Kupka and Mic Gillete), the bassist (Francis “Rocco” Prestia) and the drummer (David Garibaldi).

      I’ve seen them a few times in recent years and they’re still, “As tight as a clenched fist.”

    I have a friend or two who worship Prestia. For good reason, too, I might add.

    Now where’s “What is Hip”? That’s THE song for TOP.

    I like Turn It Up Tuesday. Wish I’d thought of it.
