1) The Boogie Boys originally were Keith Short (Kool Ski) and William Stroman (Boogie Knight). They battled Pernellio and Crew at the popular IS 201 128th and Madison Avenue to get their first record deal with Mike and Dave Records. The song was called "Rappin Aint No Thang" and was mixed live by Crash Crew D.J. Darryl C with three records (Eagles, Johnny The Fox and E.U. Freeze). Following this song (which was #1 locally in NYC) they quickly became Manhattan's top duo performing various clubs including Harlem World, Celebrity Club, Audubon Ballroom, T-Connection, Disco Connection and Ecstacy Garage Disco.
They landed a record deal on Capitol Records with producer Ted Currier who had just produced the monster hit "Atomic Dog" by funk legend George Clinton. Their first single on Capitol "Breakdancer/Zodiac" landed them an album deal. Ted Currier and Kool Ski could not see eye to eye and that left Boogie Knight with an album deal by himself while he was in the Air Force. The album was eventually completed and included the song "Fly Girl". Ted Currier was a well known remixer and had done previous work for WBLS and WKTU. At this point Currier placed Lil Rahiem and Romeo JD into the group. From there he asked HUSH productions to manage Boogie Boys as a favor since HUSH had an excellent relationship with Capitol Records.
Under HUSH Productions, Lil Rahiem and Romeo J.D. took pictures and lip-synced the video "You Ain't Fresh" without the knowledge of Boogie Knight or Currier. The songs "Fly Girl" and "You Ain't Fresh" were so popular that people to this day swear that Rahiem and Romeo are the originators. This group from Harlem entered the scene with "A Fly Girl" in 1985. The song was quite successful, but the group never again hit big. They also put out "Rappin' Ain't No Thang" on Mike & Dave Records. They released their debut album "City Life" in 1985. They followed with the LP "Survival of the Freshest" in 1986. Later on, Romeo produced many tracks for the Freestyle/Disco group Sweet Sensation that featured a lot of drum layering and a Latin influence.
Their last album "Romeo Knight" came out in early 1988.
Sadly William Stroman had just completed a solo project under the name Kid Delight when he passed away in October 2001.
Boogie Boys - trio is a first Polish piano band performing the boogie-woogie music with a touch of blues of a black origin. An absolutely incredible sound of two pianos snatches the listeners and takes them back to the age of the speedy locomotion and the crazy rhythm of the American reality.
