Written by on November 19, 2016

Lakeside is a funk band, best known for their 1980 number one R&B hit, “Fantastic Voyage”.

In early 1969, The Nomads met The Montereys, and formed a band and a singing group consisting of lead guitarist and founding member Stephen Shockley, Mark Wood, Tiemeyer McCain, Tony White, and Brian Marbury. The two groups played together in musical revues in the tri-state area of Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky.

It was in 1977 that Lakeside’s success really started to accelerate. That year, the group, going by the name Lakeside released their self-titled debut album, which featured the single, “If I Didn’t Have You”. It was also around this time that the group debuted on Soul Train, performing a Beloyd Taylor and Peter Cor composition “Shine On”, which helped pave the way for what was to come. As fate would have it the time had come for Lakeside to be a major player in creating the next chapter, with the addition of barefoot drummer Fred Alexander Jr. At this time the group was being approached by Whitfield Records, Motown and Solar Records. In the end, the band chose Solar Records, owned by Dick Griffey, with stable mates The Whispers, Shalamar, Midnight Star, Klymaxx, and Carrie Lucas.
