They look alike, rock the mic, and kill the game with their pens. This melodic tongue twister-Wendi, Wyann, Witny, and Waren Vaughn-got their start in music from their parents-industry legends Wayne Vaughn, writer & composer for groups like The Brother’s Johnson and Earth, Wind & Fire; and Wanda Vaughn, lead singer of the Grammy award winning sister trio, The Emotions. Tha Fam has worked with many greats across the musical spectrum such as Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight, Shanice Wilson, Dr. Dre, Miki Howard, DJ Quik, Maurice White and Snoop Dogg as well as various international artists. Three Generations of Groove (3GG) is a family band led by producer/songwriter Wayne Vaughn, who is best known for writing Earth, Wind, and Fire’s 1980’s smash “Let’s Groove Tonight.” The group’s name originates from Vaughn’s first solo jazz album entitled Three Generations of Groove, which features live performances from his father; the late Harvey Vaughn; wife, Wanda Vaughn lead singer of Grammy Award winning trio The Emotions; and children, Wendi and Wyann Vaughn. As a true family affair, 3GG brings their blend of R&B, jazz, and funk to the stage through classic hits and new melodic innovations. In the 1950’s in Chicago, Illinois, Joe and Lillian Hutchinson began raising a family filled with love, creativity and talent. Born in this decade were three ladies considered by the rest of us as true legends and national treasures collectively known as The Emotions. Jeanette, Wanda and Sheila Hutchinson began singing at ages three, four and five under the tutelage of their father.  This is the foundation of the intricate harmonies and solid musicianship that has given The Emotions their sound which is recognized by so many today.
