Formed in Minneapolis in 1981, the Time was the brainchild of Prince, who put the group together as an outlet for his funkier leaning. Fronted by the colorful and charismatic Morris Day and featuring a talented cast of players, the Time racked up a string of hits in the early ‘80s, gaining an additional popularity boost from their featured role in Prince’s classic 1984 rock musical, Purple Rain. With his dynamic dancing and smooth yet gutsy vocals, Morris Day and the Time played and essential role in the development of the Twin City dance/club sound of the 1980’s. Ice Cream Castle, the groups most popular album, is best remembered for the infectious singles Jungle Love and the Rufus Thomas influenced, The Bird. With their palpable pop energy and catchy choruses, both songs were hits on both urban and pop radio.
Morris Day and the Time will get Wild and Loose together again on the Kalamazoo State Theatre stage, Friday, September 21st.
