Happy Birthday Butch Tavares! (May 18)

Happy birthday to Butch Tavares of the group Tavares, born May 18, 1948.

When asked to name the Soul Music supergroups of the '70s and early '80s, folks tend to gravitate to familiar names such as Earth, Wind and Fire, the Spinners, the Commodores and the Isley Brothers.  However, five brothers from New Bedford, Massachusetts - Ralph, Tiny, Chubby, Butch and Pooch Tavares - arguably created the most consistently high quality soul music of that period.
