Hailing from the gritty streets of S.E. Washington, DC , in 1970, a group named Strength & Power was formed. A very high energetic group full of funk and melodic vocals that performed and competed against the likes of the great Sugar Bear of Experience Unlimited and Mousey Thompson (drummer for the legendary James Brown band) as well as other great local bands throughout the DC area for 6 years.
Four decades later, Strength & Power arose again like a Phoenix out of the pits of fire with the same frame of mind; to be one of the funkiest groups in the area and keeping the same influences of music like Earth Wind & Fire and George Clinton. Today, Strength & Power still delivers a funky blow to all that witness them on stage. The group consist of the brainchild and founder of the group Mr. Ivan Rush, Kevin Satterfield and Yahya Kamau. Our tag for the millennium is “WE MAKE IT FUNKY!”
