All Night Thing

  

 
The Invisible Man's Band was a pseudonym for the Five Stairsteps, known for "Ooh Child" in the early 70s.  As time went on, the group explored harder sounds that were incongrous with their established persona, so brothers Clarnce (guitar), Keni (bass), Jams (vibes), and Dennis (guitar) teamed with drummer Steve Ferrone of the Average White Band and keyboardist Dean Gant for two albums as the Invisible Man's Band in the 80s.   Their biggest hit was "All Night Thing," taken from their first LP.   Other notable cuts include "Really Wanna See You" and "Along The Way,"  They disbanded in 1983. 

Invisible Man's Band's Deepest Grooves

Invisible Man's Band (Mango, 1980) 
A departure from previous work, this LP recalls Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band with their dreamy arrangements and pointed lyrics, but these tracks have a more pronounced disco-funk flavor.  "9 Times Out Of Ten" is in the classic soul mold of the Stairsteps, while "Full Moon" and "Rent Strike" deserve to be more widely known. 

Really Wanna See You (Boardwalk, 1981)

"Sunday Afternoon" (Move 'N Groove, 1983)
