The next big boy band, The Gore Boyz (TGB), has released their new R&B hit “Spend A Bag,” which entices listeners to turn on their speaker and dance all night. The Gore Boys, consisting of three brothers, Herman, Edwin, and Sean-Michael, were born and raised in Gastonia/Charlotte, NC. The R&B and pop boy band is now becoming a global phenomenon after their recent single went viral online.
The Gore Boyz’ latest single gained its popularity in just only a month. Now their song has more than 700,000 streams on Spotify and Youtube. The song’s popularity even received various positive reactions, which can be seen through the listeners’ and fans’ dance challenge, which were posted on YouTube and Twitter.
“Spend A Bag” is produced by the Grammy Award-winning artist Theron ‘Neff-u’ Feemster, who worked with other R&B and pop artists, such as Ne-Yo and Justin Beiber, and who made the theme song for the hit movie Men In Black.
Herman shared that the song is for all audiences, whether they are young or old. “It’s a song that lets people have a great time, which is what we want our music to be about. We create clean and great music—songs that won’t phase out over time,” he says.
Since 2009, Herman III (19), Edwin (17), and Sean Michael (15) have been inspired by the Motown method. The three brothers’ journey in creating music was heavily influenced and motivated by The Jackson Five’s and Michael Jackson’s songs. These Motown-inspired artists became their inspiration to craft their fresh music, play an instrument, and learn dancing.
The Gore Boyz persistence and passion in playing instruments, dancing, and singing, aside from their appeal to the listeners and music lovers, led them to different opportunities, such as performing with major names in the music industry just as Justin Bieber. This huge success and collaboration prove that this newest boy band will continue to flourish and shine.
Herman, the eldest among the brothers, provides the harmonies and also plays supporting instruments, while Sean Michael, who is the band’s lead singer, plays the drums. On the other hand, Edwin, who is the main rapper, plays the guitar.
R&B and hip-hop superstar Usher, and even the legendary Jackson Five, have mentored the brothers. In their early career, Tommy Hill of Fuzion Force Charlotte choreographed The Gore Boyz, but for the past seven years until today, their current choreographer Chuck Maldonado reinforced their career. Maldonado is the four-time award-winning choreographer of the movie Stomp the Yard, and he is also the director of the band’s video, “Spend A Bag.”
Maldonado has an impressive background as he has worked with artists such as Chris Brown. Aside from being an award-winning choreographer, he is also the chief choreographer of Victorious, a Nickelodeon show, where the pop superstar and multi-awarded artist Ariana Grande started her career. For The Gore Boyz’ day to day affairs, Big Mike of Day 26 manages them. He also does their performance and vocal coaching.
The Gore Boyz does not only manifest excellence in music, but also in their personal lives. Each of the boys is an honor roll student and actively participates in the activities in their community aside from their success in the music industry. Herman has a full-ride scholarship to Morehouse College where he studies biology, while his younger brothers, Edwin and Sean, exhibit leadership at their schools.
As their latest single continues to grow and get viral on the internet and music streaming platforms, The Gore Boyz said that they are excited about their future as artists in this generation.
“We just want to create music that’s for everybody,” Edwin said. “We make great music you can listen to, dance to, vibe to, and enjoy anywhere you want.”
