Topper's longevity is unheard of in the music business. The band has been touring and recording for over thirty years, remaining as vital and exciting as they have been from the beginning of their incredible,long run. Originally formed in Atlanta, GA, as an eight piece horn driven funk/jazz/fusion recording project in the late seventies, Topper was poised to become a super group along the lines of Earth, Wind & Fire, The Commodores, KC & The Sunshine Band and Tower Of Power. When negotiations with record company management broke down, the group began playing live venues worldwide, continuing to write, record and release original music on their indie record label, Ring Records.

Currently a four piece band, the group can present four different formats, depending on the event, venue, clientele, etc. Topper's Dance / Variety / Party Music format utilizes a massive song list of all genres / decades of music, all performed true to form with high energy, one on one crowd interaction. Topper's vocals, stage presence and musicianship are second to none!

The band's Classic Rock Tribute Show, Voices Of Rock, showcases short sets of over ten Classic Rock super groups. (Journey, U2, Foreigner, AC/DC, Bad Company, Rod Stewart, Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Santana and Jimi Hendrix, to name a few!) Vocalist Pete George's uncanny ability to nail the characteristics of virtually any legendary singer has to be heard and seen to believe, hence the name 'Voices Of Rock!

Topper can present a concert of all original Rock material from their eighteen track compilation album, Only For The Money-Deluxe Edition. The album has been distributed worldwide in both CD and digital downloads at all major music retailers.

Topper's music has received airplay on FM and internet radio stations for over fifteen years. 

Bassist/Vocalist Joey Hill has recently released an R&B / Soul / Blues / Funk project titled, Right Stuff!, to rave reviews and consistent sales, everywhere the group performs.Joey has been writing and recording his original Gospel and R&B material for over twenty years. He is a wonderful singer/song writer and multi-instrumentalist.

Topper can present an R&B presentation featuring Joey's material, along with like minded R&B, Blues, Soul and Funk classics.

In short, there has never been a band with the talent, scope, versatility, longevity and most of all, positive energy and confidence, as Topper. This legendary band is un-stoppable!
