Fathers Children is back to stay, with top-notch, crowd-pleasing musical entertainment and unyielding professionalism.

Fathers Children, a self-contained musical group from the Washington D.C. area, has stood the proverbial “test of time.” Emerging during the 70’s from the Adams-Morgan area in D.C., the group was known for their strong vocals, tight harmonies and distinct musical sound—a tradition they continue today.

The group has performed with a host of notable artists, including Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder, Teddy Pendergrass, Stephanie Mills, Frankie Beverly and Maze and many others. Fathers Children released a self-titled album on Mercury Records in 1979 in collaboration with, and produced by, Wayne Henderson of the Crusaders. That album generated both national and international airplay and popularity, particularly from the track titled “Hollywood Dreaming.”

Fathers Children album from 1979 has been one of the most in demand albums on the Rare Groove scene over the past 25 years. Now available on CD re-mastered from the Original tapes this Wayne Henderson produced album sounds fresher than ever. ‘Hollywood Dreamin’ epitomises the rare groove era, a great track that was totally ignored when released. The mid tempo shuffler ‘Got To Get Away’ which features Augie Johnson, Miki Howard and Gregory Matta and the upbeat ‘You Can Get It’ are also highlights.
