One of the first Disco bands!
Best known for their hugely successful single Disco Inferno, The Trammps was one of the world’s first Disco bands.
Formed in 1972 and still active, The Trammps had decent success early on in the R&B charts although nothing compares to their 1976 hit Disco Inferno.
Helped by appearing in the soundtrack of Saturday Night Fever the following year and a Tina Turner cover in 1993, Disco Inferno and therefore The Trammps have remained in the public consciousness since the day their signature song first hit the airwaves.
Even as late as the 2016 election, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders used the tune as his fans would chant Bern, Baby, Bern!
Let’s also not forget the thousands of Disco bands that have kept this classic on their setlist since the late 70s.
However, to say that all of the Trammps’ success was only down to Disco Inferno would be a slight exaggeration, the band has had other hits, most notably with Hold Back the Night, That’s Where the Happy People Go, and The Night the Lights Went Out.
