Zapp Band Booking Agency Profile

Book Zapp Band for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Zapp is an ‘80s soul/funk band, initially formed by The Troutman Brothers: Roger, Larry, Terry, and Lester. Their eponymous debut album achieved Platinum certification and emerged on the Top 20 of the Billboard Top 200, spawning the groovy hit single “More Bounce to the Ounce”. The Zapp Band continued to captivate the world with their music, while Roger pioneered methods for using the talkbox that set their music apart from the rest. In a span of five years, the group landed over four Gold records and numerous Top Ten R&B hits, including “Doo Wa Ditty”, “I Can Make You Dance”, “Heartbreaker”, “Computer Love”, and their rendition of The Miracles’ “Ooo Baby Baby”. “Dance Floor, Part 1” became a number one R&B hit, while Roger’s solo pieces “I Want to be Your Man” and a cover of “I Heard it Through the Grapevine” were also huge successes. Many of today’s hottest artists have sampled Zapp & Roger’s music in their own work, especially west coast hip-hop artists like Jay Z, Lil’ Kim, Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, and Ice Cube, just to name a few. Roger collaborated with 2Pac and Dr. Dre to create “California Love”, which became 2Pac’s greatest hit, rising to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and earning a Grammy for Best Rap Performance..
