Float On" singer Larry Cunningham of The Floaters dies



(January 10, 2019) The Floaters had one big hit back in 1977, but wow was it a hit. The Floaters came out of the clubs of Detroit and shot right to the top of the pop and R&B charts with their first single, "Float On." And folks still love the ballad four decades later

Oh man shaka64 that song messed my nieces and nephews heads up in the 70's like the Dells "Stay In My Corner" messed me and my cousins heads up in the 60's. Basement parties with the red light, chicks taking the chewing gum out our mouths with their tongues, grinding in the corner, hickeys on the neck then heading out to our muscle cars with some Boone's Farm Apple Wine and of course the chicks would act all high not realizing that we knew it had only 7% alcohol. It was all good though. Stuff like this makes me wish I had a time machine. Thanks bro you made my weekend.

This is them in concert.

 

Live Sunday 12 Noon ET!

Sister Destee how have you been? It's been a while but I'm glad to be back. I see many changes so I'll browse around to get my feel of things again

Jambo! I deleted a post that was a duplication. Both were deleted!!! Can you find it and repost it for me? I put a lot of work into it!

Hi Brother shaka64 ... Welcome Home! :heart:
Destee, my Sister!! I am sending you greetings with love from a rainy and relentless overcast Michigan! But you continue to bring sunshine into my life and for that I am eternally grateful! I LOVE the new look and features in the community. I hope you're enjoying your best life. Love and peace...:heart:
