Funk’d Up: Roger & Zapp

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Zapp (also known as the Zapp Band or Zapp and Roger) is a soul and funk band formed in 1978 by brothers Roger Troutman, Larry Troutman, Lester Troutman, Tony Troutman and Terry “Zapp” Troutman. Known for hits such as “More Bounce to the Ounce”, “Dance Floor” and “Computer Love”, the group was a partial source of inspiration to West Coast hip-hop and G-funk, which came out of the hand clapped-drum beat styled funk of Zapp’s records, with Roger’s use of the talk boxbecoming another reason for the group’s impact and its success. (as found on wikipedia)

Check out the audio clip of Zapp & Roger’s “More Bounce To The Ounce”. Can you handle 9 minutes of funk?
