The R&B Club and Classic Album Sundays Washington D.C.
Saturday May 19, 2018
The R & B Club is a group founded by music aficionado Ashley-Dior Thomas, entrepreneur, broadcaster, and writer, Marcus K. Dowling, plus well-respected journalist Justin Tinsley, to celebrate the legacy of soul music. Foremost in this quest is the "Diary of an R & B Classic" series, which will highlight key album and song releases from R & B's golden era of the 1990s.
Up next is Dru Hill (official) "Enter the Dru"! Enter the Dru is the second studio album from American R&B group Dru Hill, released October 27, 1998 on Island Records. The album's name comes from Bruce Lee's film, Enter the Dragon. This is the first album that the group were credited as executive producers as all four members wrote and produced several of the songs. It released three singles "How Deep Is Your Love", "These Are the Times" and "You Are Everything".
The quartet known as Dru Hill might have had a similar come up as New Edition (gospel singers tempted by the chords of secular sounds) founder Tamir “Nokio” Ruffin with Mark “Sisqó” Andrews, Larry “Jazz” Anthony, and James “Woody Rock” Green knew they had voices, but unlike their peers, they were true creatives.
On Saturday, May 19th, from 1:30-3 PM, join Thomas, Dowling, and Tinsley as The R & B Club both listens to in-full, and discusses at-length, the impact of this release as the next installment of many ultimate celebrations of the legacy of iconic soul music.
