R.I.P. Patrick Gibson of disco group The Gibson Brothers

(April 5, 2020) In a week that was just too much for many of us, we’re sad to report another musical death. Patrick Gibson, vocalist and drummer for the group has died, reportedly from the coronavirus. The France-based trio scored on charts around the world in the late 70s with the dance hits "Cuba" and "Que Sera Mi Vida".

Consisting of West Indies-born brothers Chris, Patrick and Alex, The Gibson Brothers began recording in Paris during the early days of the disco boom, but failed to make an impact with their first two singles, "Come to America" and "Non Stop Dance."

Then, in 1978 they issued "Cuba," a blend of latin and disco that became a hit in Europe and around the world. It began a string of European hits, and led to another top 10 smash the following year with "Que Sera Mi Vida."

The Gibson brothers continued to record with some success throughout the 1980s, and performed their hits in tours for decades to come. They will continue to be remembered for their joyous blend of international sounds in infectious dance numbers that get us shaking right up to today.

Thanks to Gary Van den Bussche for letting us know.
