Foundation Legend Denroy Mogan & Perfect ( Greg Rose)

He was immediately seduced by the weekly live concerts at the Apollo Theatre in the 60s where he could see musical giants like James Brown, Wilson Pickett, O’Jays, Al Green and The Temptations. Denroy enrolled  at the New York School of Music.  There he briefly studied guitar and piano, and it wasn’t long before he started two bands in New York, Mad Creators, and later, Black Eagles. The latter enjoyed the distinction of becoming the first roots & culture reggae band in New York City.  A chance meeting with Denroy and Bert Reid, the saxophonist from the then flashy and popular Crown Heights Affair band led to a label deal and a chart topper with the radio anthems I’ll Do Anything and Sweet Tender Love in the early 1980s. Suddenly he found himself performing in unlikely venues like New York’s shrine to club music, the Paradise Garage, and he was instantly on tour with unlikely artists such as Frankie Beverly & Maz
