The music's full of joy and laughter
And it's such a thrill
Free your mind from all the pressure
Head on up the hill
A Bronx group that effectively mixed East Coast disco and Chicago soul covers in the late ’70s and early ’80s, GQ began as Sabu & the Survivors in 1968. Lead vocalist Emmanuel Rahiem LeBlanc, Keith Crier, Herb Lane, and Paul Service were original members, but by 1980 GQ were a trio following Service’s departure. They had two Top Ten R&B and Top 20 pop hits, as well as a number one R&B single in 1979, with “Disco Nights (Rock-Freak)” also peaking at number 12 pop; the single also won GQ an American Music Award.
