In The Beginning!
In 1978, John started a group called the Flamingo Dancers. They were picked up by the Al-Alberts Show Case (WPVI TV - Channel
6) in Philadelphia PA.
The Flamingo Dancers appeared on numerous television shows in Philadelphia, and was chosen as the Opening act for Club Harlem in
Atlantic City NJ.
They also opened for a variety of groups such as the The Chi-Lites, Keith Sweat, New
Edition, The Intruders, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Ready for the
World, etc. Their young ages, talent and debonair attire became known throughout the entertainment industry.
In 1980, the Flamingo Dancers went on tour with the Godfather of Soul, Mr James
Brown for about six months.
met Mr. James Brown in the 1980 at the legendary Uptown Theater.
John still remembers the excitement he felt when The Flamingo's was called in to be the opening act for -of all people - Mr. James
Brown. And when he saw John perform one of his songs, he told him that in spite of his young age John was the best James Brown impersonator he had ever seen.
"That memory is as alive today as when it first happened"
The Flamingo Dancers later
changed their name to “The Broadway Thriller" and released a hit song called
“Let’s do the Michael Jackson” in 1984. (YouTube)
