CONCERT-THE INTRUDERSThe Intruders, founded in Philadelphia in the late 60s was one of the first groups to have hit songs under the directions of famed record producers, songwriters, Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff. They had a major influence on the development of Philadelphia ‘Soul’. The group originally
consisted of Sam “Little Sonny” Brown, Eugene “Bird” Daughtry, Phillip “Phil” Terry, and Robert “Big Sonny” Edwards. In 1969, Sam Brown was replaced as lead singer by Bobby Starr, only to rejoin the group in 1973. The Intruders developed a vocal sound that was both theirs and uniquely ‘Philadelphia’. Gamble and Huff’s success with The Intruders helped convince Columbia Records to launch Philadelphia International, thus The Intruders became what they called “The Sound of Philadelphia”. The group had several major hits in the early 70s including “When We Get Married”, “I Wanna Know Your Name”, and “I’ll Always Love My Mama”. It was their recording of chartbusting “Cowboys to Girls” that gave them their one and only #1 song on the R&B charts.
