Born in Martinique, these three talented brothers, Chris, Patrick, and Alex Gibson, began performing together in 1976. Their sound has been called disco-salsa by some, simply hot by others.
The single, "Come to America," was recorded that first year, 1976. It landed on many European music charts, becoming a number one hit on some. In 1977, the Gibson Brothers' tune, "Non Stop Dance," was a million seller. This hit single found the European charts as well. Three years later the brothers broke onto the charts worldwide, including the American Billboard Top Ten, with a little number called "Cuba." It sold over four million copies and earned 14 gold records. The course seemed set, and other releases like "Ooh What a Life" and "Que Sera Mi Vida" did as well, and even better.
The Gibson Brothers' album, Emily, was released in 1987 and won them a Group of the Year award. In 1995 and 1996, the threesome released two compilations, Cuba and the Best of the Gibson Brothers. The albums are filled with disco rock sounds like "You" and "Better Do It Salsa." The Belgian-produced album, Move on Up, was released worldwide in 1997. It held a mix of old tunes along with new. ~ Charlotte Dillon, Rovi
