Yes you and I seen’t it with our own eyes, or if you haven’t check out the clip below of the reunion of The Deele! Yes, that Deele with those guys, who are responsible for a large portion of the wellspring of modern Black Popular Music flows from. Not that The Deele needed to prove anything to anyone, their legacy in my opinion is quite in tact but man do they have it – the energy, the moves, the coordination of the stage, showmanship, musicianship I could go on… suffice to say that’s how you put on a show!

Did I mention that we were treated to “Body Talk” and “Two Occasions”? Man… look. No really press that button below and be prepared to get up out of your seat!
