Biography

Formed in 1969, US vocalists Tiemeyer McCain, Thomas Oliver Shelby, Otis Stokes and Mark Woods were augmented by an instrumental unit comprising Steve Shockley (guitar), Norman Beavers (keyboards), Marvin Craig (bass), Fred Alexander (drums) and Fred Lewis (percussion). Originally based in Dayton, Ohio, USA, this funk group secured its first hit in 1978 with ‘It’s All The Way Live’. Released on the Solar label, it was the first of a series of popular singles including ‘Fantastic Voyage’ (1980), ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’ (1982) and ‘Outrageous’ (1984), all of which reached the US R&B Top 10. Although guitarist Shockley was an integral part of the Solar house band, Lakeside lacked the profile of labelmates Shalamar. A three-year chart hiatus ended in 1987, but that year’s ‘Bullseye’ remains the group’s last chart entry to date.
