Dedicated to favorite musical siblings

I thought I'd start a thread about musical sister and brother acts. For me one of the most enjoyable groups was the Mills Brothers. I think I saw them twice in a live performance and to say they were a polished act would be an understatement. It was pretty late in their careers, in fact one of the original brothers was no longer performing and another one had difficulty seeing. But it was great seeing them and hearing their beautiful voices.

    From as far back as I can remember I've always loved the Jackson's, Earth Wind & Fire, and many other sibling groups.

    Around the late 70's there was a band named 'Switch' (out of Ohio) that got that name because they would switch lead vocals and instruments during songs. They got turned on and signed to Motown by Jermaine Jackson. They had some songs featuring lead vocalist Bobby DeBarge from Grand Rapids, MI (His brother Tommy DeBarge was in the group as well), that really caught my attention.

    Around the early 80's the younger DeBarge siblings formed their own group named 'DeBarge'. The whole family are singers and as a group they have wonderful harmony. IMO, they were/ are as talented or more so than many other R&B / Pop groups out and were on the way to super stardom. However, personal issues got in the way at the time of their peak. I really love their songs!

    ^^^ Not one of my favorite top pop family groups, but worth mentioning them.

    Jake and Elwood probably don't count? :)

    Oh, Listen here mister. We got no way of understandin' this world. But we got as much sense of this bird flyin in the sky. Now there is a lot that bird don't know, but it don't change the fact that the world is happening to him all the same. What I am tryin to say is, is that the course of your life, well its changing, and you don't even see it- Forest Bondurant

    Heart. Ann and Nancy, I think.

    I think there were 2 bothers in CCR as well. John Fogerty and maybe Tom?
  • While I never saw Cannonball perform live I did have the pleasure of seeing Nat at the Left Bank Jazz Society in Baltimore. He was a teacher like his brother and explained what the next song he would play was about in musical terms. Great experience.

  • Another sibling jazz group that I enjoy are the Heath Brothers, Jimmy, Percy and Tootie. Of course Percy Heath played with the Modern Jazz Quartet as well as with his brothers.

  • Then there is the Marsalis family, (Ellis, Wynton, Delfeayo, Jason, Branford). I heard Papa Ellis on piano and Delfeayo on drums perform at a small jazz club in Annapolis.

    This video of the Osmonds needs to be here. :p

  • I first became aware of Randy Brecker from the Blood Sweat and Tears introduction album, then he and his brother Michael started appearing on loads of jazz fusion records.

  • Wow @WLDock what a fantastic post! I am a huge Tommy Flanagan and James Carter fan! Thanks for information on your fellow Detroit HS alumni. I remember attending a lecture given by Thelonius Monk Jr. about his father and then watching a documentary with Mr. Flanagan demonstrating some of Monk's piano style. Please tell your wife how much her uncle meant to jazz lovers around the world.

    Yes, will do!

    I saw him with Ella Fitzgerald when I was in middle school. I was floored years later when the wife and I were dating to find out that Tommy Flanagan was her Uncle and that we were both at that concert.
    Through the years, he was always touring but during the Detroit stents I got the chance to meet and talk with him a few times and see a few concerts before he passed. I spoke at his homegoing ceremony in Detroit about seeing him live with Ella at a young age and his jazz influence.
  • Just playing on John Coltrane's "Giant Steps" is enough to make him a jazz immortal let alone everything else he did.
