The Jacksons
The Jackson 5 (also spelled The Jackson Five, sometimes stylized The Jackson 5ive), later known as The Jacksons, or simply Jacksons, are an American popular music family group from Gary, Indiana.
Founding group members Jackie Jackson, Tito Jackson, Jermaine Jackson, Marlon Jackson and Michael Jackson formed the group after performing in an early incarnation called The Jackson Brothers, which originally consisted of a trio of the three older brothers. Active from 1964 to 1990, the Jacksons played from a repertoire of R&B, soul, pop and (in the 1970s) disco. During their six-and-a-half-year Motown tenure, The Jackson 5 was one of the biggest pop-music acts of the 1970s,[1] and the band served as the launching pad for the solo careers of their lead singers Jermaine and Michael, the latter brother later transforming his early Motown solo fame into greater success as an adult artist. The Jackson 5/The Jacksons have sold 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the best selling artists of all time.
The Jacksons are currently on their world Reunion tour known as. "The Jacksons Unity Tour"!
Marcus Johnson
With the commercial and Billboard chart success of his NAACP Image Award nominated CD, “Poetically Justified” (#4) in his rearview and having been included among the ranks of contemporary jazz greats such as Wynton Marsalis, Christian McBride, and Vanessa Williams, for that nomination, Marcus Johnson is set to release his 12th CD titled, “This is How I Rock”, on July 27th.
This album boldly signifies an evolution: Johnson’s deliberate crossing into the pop/rock genre with a jazz spin, inspired by some of pop music’s most celebrated songs, songs that remained a significant influence in the life of the award-winning keyboardist, composer and producer and motivated his desire to pay tribute to some of the greatest pop hits.
“This Is How I Rock” exemplifies Johnson’s versatility and brilliant interpretive skills. Listeners from the novice to the jazz connoisseur will be utterly engaged by Johnson’s signature jazz funk sound; and neither will be disappointed.
With an MBA and JD from Georgetown University, Johnson’s educational background compliments his career success story as both an artist and entrepreneur which led him to establish Marimelj Entertainment Group comprising Three Keys Music and Studio 8121. Johnson recently teamed up with Tarara Winery to create the FLO…™ Wines Series, a private wine label under his new company, FLO…™ Brands, LLC.
“This is How I Rock” continues to chronicle his journey, as this new offering, is an extension of his continued commitment to his art and his audience. “This is How I Rock” will be available at all major retail outlets. For more information about Marcus Johnson, visit
