Sly and the Family Stone
Sly and the Family Stone's 1968 album "Dance to the Music" was a mega hit for the funky family.

From 1966-1983, San Francisco, California-bred Sly and the Family Stone (1968's "Dance to the Music" and "Everyday People," 1969's "Hot Fun in the Summertime") was a popular rock/funk/soul band. The group was lead by multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriter/producer Sly Stone, and included his friends and family members. Band member and brother of Sly, Freddie Stone, served as singer and guitarist. The brothers combined their own individual groups to form Sly & the Family Stone in 1967. Their sister, Rose Stone, contributed to the family effort with her vocal and keyboardist skills. The group's achievements included five Billboard Hot 100 Hits, four influential albums, and an induction into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. Rose's daughter, Lisa Stone, is a singer with her aunt Vet Stone (little sister of Sly, Freddie, and Rose) in a tribute band called Family Stone, which Sly produces. Family Stone also includes Cynthia Robinson, veteran member (vocals and trumpet) of the original Sly and the Family Stone. Vet Stone was the lead singer of Sly & the Family Stone's background group, appropriately called Little Sister, which had a hit in 1970 with "You're the One." More recently, daughter Lisa and mother Rose sang backup vocals together for Elton John during his 2011-2012 tour performances.
