ADY CRAMPTON CHATS TO THE STARS

Oliver C Brown – KC & The Sunshine Band

May 1, 2019

Californian Oliver Brown went to Miami to seek his fortune and certainly found it.  His talent soon brought him to the attention of Henry Stone of TK Records who employed him as the label’s house percussionist, recording with Betty Wright, George & Gwen McCrae, KC and The Sunshine Band and many more artists.

It was as part of KC and The Sunshine Band that he gained international recognition and Oliver moved to the west coast going on to record with The Supremes, Terry Callier, Cher, Taka Boom, The Originals and others.

Here he met the extremely talented duo Clydene Jackson and Harold Payne and completed the trio that now record and perform as Gravity 180
