Major Lance - Monkey Time


Major Lance attended the same High school as Curtis Mayfield and Jerry Butler where not surprisingly his interests soon veered towards music. He was also pretty nimble on his feet and his dancing earned him his first break with a spot on a local program hosted by disc jockey Jim Lounsbury. Many of his hits were written and produced by Curtis Mayfield, including 'Hey Little Girl', 'Um Um Um Um Um Um', 'The Matador' 'Rhythm' and of course 'Monkey Time'.
