Biography

Tony! Toni! Toné! is an American soul/R&B group from Oakland, California, popular during the late 1980s and early to mid-1990s. During the band's heyday, it was composed of Dwayne Wiggins on lead vocals and guitar, his brother Raphael Saadiq (born Charles Ray Wiggins) on lead vocals and bass, and their cousin Timothy Christian Riley on drums and keyboards. Other members were Elijah Baker, Carl Wheeler, Randall Wiggins, and Amar Khalil, who is the current lead singer of the group, and Antron Haile.

Originally, the band went by "Tony, Toni, Toné" as a joke, until they realized it had a nice ring to it.

After making their debut with Who? in 1988, the group released albums to enormous success, particularly The Revival (1990) and Sons of Soul (1993), which gave them their greatest commercial success and was certified double platinum in the United States. Tony! Toni! Toné! disbanded after the release of their fourth album House of Music (1996), which critics cite as their greatest work.
