Legendary band Rufus label "funk band" does not begin to describe the multi-faceted musical legacy of Rufus, the ever-changing interracial group formed in the seventies that launched vocal superstar Chaka Khan. With ten gold and/or platinum albums (seven of which were #1 R&B charters) and eight #1 charting R&B singles (five of which went multi platinum), Rufus' material spanned from the sublime balladry of "Sweet Thing" and "Hollywood" to the hard-thumpin’ grooves of "Ain’t Nobody" and "Tell Me Something Good." Over a total of thirteen albums (ten with Chaka), Rufus honed a fierce reputation that resulted in them sharing stages with everyone from Santana and the Commodores to Elton John and the Rolling Stones. Their position in pop history is as among the most versatile soul bands to spring forth from the fertile years of the seventies.
Their hits include “At Midnight (My Love Will Lift You Up),” “Sweet Thing,” “Dance Wit Me,” “You Got the Love,” “Do You Love What You Feel,” “Tell Me Something Good,” “Heaven Bound,” “Feel Good,” “Please Pardon Me (You Remind Me of a Friend)”
