The American R&B group known as the Bar-Kays was founded in the mid 1960’s in Memphis, Tennessee. Initially, the members of the Bar-Kays were studio session musicians who played for such notable performers as Booker T. Jones and Otis Redding. Eventually, the musicians decided to create their own group, releasing the debut single “Soul Finger” in 1967.
The song rose into the top five on the R&B charts, but shortly thereafter a tragic plane crash took the lives of many of the original group members. The Bar-Kays were regrouped with Ben Cauley, James Alexander, Harvey Henderson, Larry Dodson, Ronnie Gorden, Willie Hall, and Michael Toles. In 1975, the Bar-Kays signed with Mercury Records, and throughout the 1960’s, 1970’s, and 1980’s, the Bar-Kays enjoyed a number of high charting singles, including “Son of Shaft” and “Boogie Body Land.” The song “Soul Finger” has gone on to appear multiple times in a variety of films, including Spies Like Us (1985) and Superbad (2007.)
The Bar-Kays has continued performing and recording into the new millennium. The group’s most recent single, “Grown Folks,” was released in 2012.
