Respect - Mr. A.L.I.


Phil Asher

Mr. A.L.I.

This band was created with the intention of bringing back a live element to the world of soulful dance music. Put together by dance industry veteran producer Jere McAllister (the person who wrote "Let The Music Move You" for Frankie Knuckles, played keyboards for Michael Jackson's "Remember the Time" and worked on remixes for Diana Ross, INXS and Dajae) and his partner Vick Lavender (from Glenn Underground's “Strictly JazZ Unit”), it features an ever-changing, multi-cultural melting pot, of musicians. Anchored by the vocal stylings of singer/songwriter Carla Prather, the group showcases everything from Afro-Latin rhythms to soulful harmonies to a touch of Jazz. All contained within a package that is made to get your dance groove on.
The core of the band is Jere McAllister (Keys, MD), Carla Prather (Vox), Dajae (Vox), Clyde Davis (Drums), Dave Hiltebrand (Bass), Chris Greene (Sax), Rick Gehrenbeck (Keys), Joe Rendon (Percussion), & David Risque (The Groove Guru). With Keith Henderson or Gerry Johnson, occasionally, sitting in on guitar.
