Grammy Award Winner Keith Harrison Stopped By Hidden Gem Music Club


It's not everyday that you are in a room with a Grammy winner... and then actually get to meet the person... and then, realize he helped record/perform one of the greatest "Disco" songs you spent many nights dancing to.

CENTERVILLE, OH -- Saturday night while visiting the Hidden Gem Music Club in Centerville to hear Big Gil & His Funky All Stars, Grammy Winner Keith Harrison was in the audience. Harrison, who was just there to listen to some good music from his friends in Big Gil's band, shared that he won a Grammy in 1982 for the hit Let It Whip when he was in the Dazz Band.
