Peaches & Herb
Peaches & Herb
This internationally-known R&B/pop duo continues to enchant audiences with hits like “We’re Still Together” 2 Hot, which went gold, “Shake Your Groove Thing” which also went gold, and of course, “Reunited” which not only reached #1 on both the Hot 100 and the Billboard R&B charts, but was nominated for a Grammy Award for Song of the Year in 1980! “I Pledge My Love,” another Peaches & Herb hit, has, by conservative estimates, been played at thousands of weddings.
They packed the house in Las Vegas just recently, and will play Washington D.C. on May 13, 2010 after several in-between engagements, delighting huge fan audiences.
Peaches & Herb’s disco hit “Shake Your Groove Thing” was featured prominently in almost too many films to mention such as An Extremely Goofy Movie, Monster, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Connie and Carla and Marock, as well as others.
“Shake Your Groove Thing” was featured in an Intel advertisement campaign in the late 1990s. Alvin and the Chipmunks and Drew Seeley sang in on their Undeniable album, and again on the soundtrack for Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, this time with the Chipettes. The cast of “That 70s Show” sang “Shake Your Groove Thing” in the episode “That 70s Musical”.
In June 2009, the rock band Faith No More opened their set at Brixton Academy with their own version of “Reunited” alluding to the band’s eleven year break up and subsequent reunion. They did the same for their headlining slot at Download Festival a few weeks later.
Through many years and several Peaches reincarnations, the duo has wowed audiences worldwide since December 1966 when a St-Louis radio DJ decided to flip the single “We’re in this Thing Together,” and play its B-side instead, “Let’s Fall in Love.” It, of course, became a worldwide hit. Nine more worldwide hits later, they’re still wowing them…all over the world.
