391. Ohio Players

As one of the great Funk bands of the 70’s, the Ohio Players put their stamp on the R&B charts (and the Pop charts too) with a powerful horn section and a not so subtle sexual imagery. Their brand of Funk translated well into the Disco era and they had a run that was only matched by a handful of other Funk groups. They probably won’t be the next Funk band in, but they may have done enough to be considered for it.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 1991   Country of Origin: U.S.A.
