Washington, D.C., bandleader, performer, and songwriter Chuck Brown was a prominent figure on the city’s go-go scene. Chuck Brown & the Soul Searchers were also one of the rare go-go acts to gain national attention, even though they were short-lived. The Soul Searchers included trombonist/keyboardist John “JB” Buchanan, trumpeter Donald Tillery, saxophonist/flutist Leroy Fleming, bassist Jerry Wilder, percussionist Gregory Gerran, organist Curtis Johnson, keyboardist Skip Fennell, drummer Ricardo Wellman, and guitarist LeRon Young. They vaulted into the spotlight with “Bustin’ Loose,” the top R&B single for four consecutive weeks at the end of 1978.
