Biography

Cameo is an American soul-influenced funk group that formed in the early 1970s. Cameo was initially a 13-member group known as the New York City Players; this name was later changed to Cameo to avoid a lawsuit from Ohio Players,[citation needed] another group from that era.

As of 2009, some of the original members continue to perform together, while two others were hired by the hip hop group Outkast. Cameo was a top R&B/Funk band in an era with notable peers such as: Rick James, Parliament-Funkadelic, Bar-Kays, Earth, Wind & Fire, Ohio Players, The Isley Brothers, etc. and singers like Marvin Gaye, Billy Paul, Prince, Isaac Hayes, Stevie Wonder, and Bootsy Collins.
