Team Familiar

"When all is said and done, I want more done than said." D. Floyd

Team Familiar (formerly 911/Familiar Faces) was formed in 2001 from the vision and under the leadership of the legendary GoGo great, Donnell Floyd. The band developed quite a reputation in the city, earning them the title “Grown & Sexy Band” of the DMV. Performing with the likes of national recording artists’ greats, such as Montell Jordan, Tony Terry, Fantasia, Marsha Ambrosius, and R. Kelly, Raheem DeVaughn and Melanie Fiona, Team Familiar fast became one of the best bands to see.

After a ten year, strong run in the city, there was great excitement when Floyd, DP and Bojack decided to return to Rare Essence in 2010. Although that reunion was short lived, it didn’t take long for Floyd, and some of the original Team Familiar crew to figure out, that you can’t fit a round peg in a square hole; and so returns Team Familiar.

Continuing to gel its chemistry, Familiar’s leader, Floyd never stops seeking perfection, in his artists or his band. Now with several GoGo legends in the band, this group is sure to achieve the success that GoGo has longed for.

Team Familiar is back, Familiar as ever, and still spectacular as ever. The new line up of Team Familiar consists of go-go veterans including some that have fronted their own bands.
• Donnell Floyd – vocals/saxophone
• Frank “Scooby” Marshall – vocals/guitar
• Jeffrey "Jammin Jeff" Warren – drums
• Marquis “Quisy” Melvin – vocals
• Kimberly “Ms. Kim” Graham – vocals
• Derek “DP” Paige, Sr – trumpet/vocals
• Jasen “O” Holland – trumpet/vocals
• Byron "BJ" Jackson – keyboards/vocals
• Mike Arnold – keyboards
• Sean Geason – bass
• Eric “Bojack” Butler – percussion
• Milton “GoGo Mickey” Freeman - congas
With Scooby (Lissen Band), Ms. Kim (Rare Essence, Chuck Brown), and Quisy sharing the mic, there’s some serious vocal talent in the group. It’s also exciting to see a full horn section. The combination of Bojack and GoGo Mickey promise some intense pocket beats. This band will be versatile enough to move from jazz and pop to hip-hop oriented go-go crank.

We are still Familiar.
