The Bar-kays have officially released their first physical CD in over a decade and their first CD released through the Universal Music Group Distribution family by the way of Bungalo Records. The initial CD has sold over 50% of the total shipment in less than 30 days, a sales record for the Barkays and a record for a Bungalo Records Official Recording Artist.
All star appearances related to the upcoming music launch are soon to be announced with the Bar-Kays currently preparing to embark on a 50 city world tour first quarter of 2013.
"This is a historical sales event for the Bungalo family, not since our #1 Patti Labelle record, that we have seen record sales like this, congrats to the "Legends of Funk", says Robert (Leo) Rodgers, VP of Bungalo Records, Universal Music Group Dist.
The Bar-Kays’ music continues to prove itself timeless with NBC’s Today Show saluting “Freak Show” as Hoda Kotb’s and Kathy Lee Gifford’s favorite dance tracks to start their mornings. The Bar-Kays are preparing to kick off a global tour coming to a city near you playing the classic favorites as well as debuting their new release, “Grown Folks’.
