The NEW MFSB made its debut performance
across the street from the headquarters of the world famous
Philadelphia International Records. They played the Kimmel
Center (home of the Philadelphia Orchestra) in the fall
of 05. Since then they have played many successful engagements,
including the Wachovia Center, and Unity Day with Steve
Harvey, for over a million people. Everyone agrees that
The NEW MFSB is special. It kept all of
the soul of the original funky orchestra, yet it has expanded
the audio and visual excitement, even further.
One of the things that makeThe NEW MFSB
so unique is that the members have recorded or performed
with more Platinum-selling acts than any group in history.
So they understand R&B music and entertainment in a
way few other artists have been able to. MFSB
knows how to have a good time at a concert setting, in the
studio, or in any situation in which they find themselves.
Their specialty is getting the audience “in the zone”
John Ingram – lead vocals –
was a staff writer at Philadelphia International Records.
He recorded, and toured with Patti La Belle, was featured
in the film, “Standing in the Shadows of Motown,”
and occasionally tours with the Funk Brothers as their
lead singer. Carla Benson – background
vocals – was with MFSB from the beginning. She recorded
80% of all of the Philly Sound Hits. She is quick to point
out she only recorded 50% of the duds. She has over two
hundred Gold and Platinum Albums to her credit. Her brother,
Keith Benson – drummer - recorded
almost all of the Philadelphia International artists. He
recorded the Sound of Philadelphia’s anthem, and their
biggest hit, ever, “Ain’t No Stopping Us
Now.” Dennis Harris –
guitar - has more Gold and Platinum Albums than anyone in
the business. He is one of few musicians in the world with
over 30 Gold and Platinum Record Awards. Michael
Clark represents “New MFSB.”
Jazzy, Funky, Fresh, Cool, Talented, he’s from New
York and completes the front line of the group. They represent
the core of The NEW MFSB. They are committed
to keeping the Sound of Philadelphia alive, and they are
committed to keeping classic R&B alive, and vibrant,
by "playing it the right way."
MFSB is as current today as they were
in the 1970’s. They are the hottest group in advertising.
Television commercials, advertising everything from beer
to trucks use their music. And Hollywood is in the MFSB
Mother, Father Sister, Brother. “MFSB”
- feel them for the first time, all over again.
