    A Conversation with Malvin Dino Vice

    in Lifestyle

    Malvin Dino Vice began entertaining professionally at the age of twelve where he and Gap Band legend Charlie Wilson, along with some other childhood friends started their first performing band, “The Carver GTs” later to become “The Majestic Soul”. The band performed at the local Y.M.C.A, private parties, teen hops, and nightclubs. Additionally, this band was the warm up act for a Beach Boys concert at the Tulsa Fairgrounds which initiated instant local appeal, and fans were awe struck at the professionalism of this group because of group’s young members. By high school, the name of this band changed to The Spinadas (the name of a mild alcoholic beverage that flourished in the 70s).  In their early teen years, Dino and Charlie were asked to fill-in for Charlie’s older brother (Ronnie Wilson, another Gap Band legend), and another musician in a group called The Magnificent Seven, which was co-founded by the older Wilson brother. Immediately, Dino and Charlie were recruited into this band, and continued to back black music dignitaries at the larger venues. Sam & Dave (Hold on I’m Comin”), The Ike & Tina Turner Review, Mel & Tim (Backfield In Motion), The Chi-Lites, Lowell Fulsom, Bobby Bland, Joe Simon, The Festivals, are to name a few of the many acts that were backed by this band.  It's going to be a great conversation with a super person.

    Raymond Calhoun (formerly of the Gap Band)

    in Entertainment

    Growing up with a Pentecostal minister father, the Wilson brothers formed the Greenwood, Archer, and Pine Street Band in 1967, with Tuck Andress (later of Tuck and Patti). Early on, the group took on a funk sound more reminiscent of the early 70s[1]. This style failed to catch on, and their first two LP's, 1974's Magician's Holiday and 1977's The Gap Band (Not to be confused with their 1979 album) failed to chart or produce any charting singles. However, they were introduced to LA producer Lonnie Simmons, who signed them to his record label, Total Experience Records[2]. Simmons had recently gotten a distribution deal with Mercury/Polygram. When Lonnie signed them, the group had twelve musicians. The group dropped most of their personnel. Raymond Calhoun (writer "Outstanding"), Oliver Scott (co-writer "Yearning For Your Love), and arranger/producer Malvin Dino Vice (co-writer "Boys Are Back in Town") were retained as members of the backing band and major contributors to the Gap Band's later recordings. On their first Simmons-produced album, The Gap Band, they found chart success with songs such as "I'm in Love" and "Shake", the latter becoming a Top 10 R&B hit in 1979.
