Band/artist history
PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT IN 1991, R&B MUSIC WAS UNDERGOING ONE OF ITS USUAL TRANSITIONS. ELECTRONIC NEW-JACK BEATS WERE MATURING INTO IMPRESSIVE COMBINATIONS OF BLUES, SOUL, CLASSICAL, & JAZZ, RIDING HEAVY BASSLINES & SMOOTH SYNTH TONES. WITH MELODIC PIANO & KEYBOARD ARRANGEMENTS TAKING THE LEAD, A YOUTHFUL QUINTET FROM CHICAGO WAS LEADING THE CHARGE. R. KELLY & PUBLIC ANNOUNCENMENT SPOKE FREELY ABOUT LOVE, EROTIC THOUGHTS, THE STREETS & THE PARTY. WITH HITS LIKE DEDICATED,SHES GOT THAT VIBE, & HONEY LOVE, R. KELLY & PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT WERE RE-INVENTING THE FACE OF CONTEMPORARY R&B MUSIC & FORGING WHAT IS NOW KNOWN AS THE CHICAGO SOUND: R&B FUSED WITH FUNK, JAZZ, HIP-HOP, & AN ELECTRIC UNDERCURRENT OF BLUES. WHEN R. KELLY MOVED AMICABLY TO A SOLO CAREER, THE PERCEPTION WAS THAT PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT WAS MORE A FOOTNOTE OR AN AFTERTHOUGHT THAN A PLATFORM, LEFT BEHIND TO WATCH SUCCESS THROUGH LIFES WINDOW. EVERYONE WAS WRONG.. HONING THEIR CRAFT, & PERFECTING ONE OF THE STRONGEST STAGE SHOWS EVER SEEN, FELONY DAVIS, EARL ROBINSON, EUCLID GRAY & GLENN WRIGHT WAITED PATIENTLY BEFORE UNLEASHING BODY BUMPIN (YIPPIE-YI-YO) ON AN UNSUSPECTING PUBLIC IN 1998. THE EXPLOSION WAS INSTANT AND SO WERE THE PHONES. THE RESULT WAS THE PHENOMENAL ALL WORK, NO PLAY ALBUM, FEATURING HITS LIKE TURN THE HANDS, ITS ABOUT TIME, & THE INNOVATIVE Y-TO-THE-YIPPIE (STEP ON). SHOWS WERE EVENTS & CELEBRATIONS, COMPANIONS TO A GOLD CD THAT, TO THIS DAY, DISPLAYS TIMELESS STAYING POWER. WERE PERFORMERS. WE BELIEVE YOU SHOULD GET A PACKAGE WHEN YOU SEE PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT. PERIOD! SAYS LEAD SINGER FELONY DAVIS. FANS FROM AGE 18 TO 34 AGREE: PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT IS THE TRUTH! WITH MILITARY PRECISION, PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENTS BLEND OF FUNK, BLUES, & TREND-SETTING SOUL HARMONIES MARCHED ACROSS THE CHARTS, SUPPORTED BY SOLD-OUT SHOWS. WHEN RECORD LABEL A&M MET ITS DEMISE, PREPARATION KEPT P.A. ON THE ROAD & IN THE STUDIO. WHEN RCA CAME CALLING, THE SLINKY, INFECUTOUS JOHN DOE WAS MAKIN MAD NOISE ON ITS OWN AT RADIO STATIONS EVERYWHERE. SO MUCH SO, IN FACT, THAT THE LABEL HAD TO RUSH-RELEASE AN ALBUM, THE SOPHOMORE EFFORT DONT HOLD BACK. WITH JOHN DOE GENERATING SEXUALLY-CHARGED CONTROVERSY, THE BOUNCY, ELECTRIC MAMACITA TOOK ON LIFE OF ITS OWN, RUSHING THE CROSSOVER CHARTS. ONCE AGAIN, THE ANNOUNCEMENT HAD BEEN MADE TO THE WORLD: P.A WAS FOR REAL! SAYS GROUP LEADER EARL ROBINSON: OBVIOUSLY, WE SPEAK MOSTLY TO THE LADIES. BUT OUR MUSIC IS FOR EVERYONE, ABOUT THE SOUL, THE HEART, & THE BODY. MEN & WOMEN OF ALL AGES CAN FEEL WHAT WE TALK ABOUT WITH ACE WATKINS REPLACING THE DEPARTED EUCLID GRAY, THE MACHINE THAT GAVE US JOHN DOE, MAMACITA, & BODY BUMPIN STRUCK GOLD AGAIN WITH MAN AINT SUPPOSED TO CRY, ONCE AGAIN SOLIDIFYING THEIR PLACE IN CONTEMPORARY MUSIC AS A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH. NO CHART WAS LEFT UNTOUCHED. PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT HAD MOVED SEAMLESSLY FROM THE R&B, CROSSOVER, TOP 40, & URBAN AC CHARTS, A FEAT THAT, UNTIL THAT TIME, HAD BEEN RESERVED ONLY FOR THE PHENOMANAL SUPERGROUP BOYZ II MEN. BUT ONCE AGAIN ADVERSITY REARED ITS FAMILIAR HEAD, THIS TIME AT RCA. THE LABEL WAS SHUT DOWN, LEAVING ITS STABLE OF ARTISTS TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES & CONTEMPLATE THEIR FUTURE. BUT WITH 1 MULTI PLATINUM SINGLE, 2 GOLD SINGLES, AND 2 GOLD ALBUMS, & A HISTORY RICH WITH PERSEVERANCE, PROFESSIONALISM, & CREATIVITY, P.A WENT DEEP INTO THE LAB ONCE AGAIN, AWAITING THE PASSING OF THE STORM. NOW, THE STORM IS OVER. AND SHOWTIME IS BACK. ARMED WITH A STORIED PAST, AN ARSENAL OF NEW SONGS & NEWEST MEMBER MAR-K, LC, FELONY, & GLENN "MACK" ARE READY ONCE AGAIN TO TAKE THE WORLD BY STORM! ALREADY, SONGS LIKE SHES THE ONE, WHAT IF HE KNEW?, IN DA CLUB, & THE INCREDIBLE TRIBUTE SONG WOMAN ARE BUZZING , UNDERGROUND & ON-LINE! PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT III IS A TRIBUTE TO THE GROWTH & MATURITY ONE WOULD EXPECT FROM SUCH A CONSISTENT, RESPECTED MUSICAL FORCE & FANS ACROSS THE COUNTRY, HUNGRY FOR THE RETURN OF TRUE R&B, WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED. IF IT IS INDEED TRUE THAT HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF, THE TIME HAS COME ONCE AGAINPUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT IS HERE TO STAY & THATS WHATS UP!
