This classic concert tee dates back to the 1970s at what appears to be a joined musical act. It featured groups from Houston, Philly, and Brooklyn each talented in a range of genres including American disco and soul, R&B, and funk. These bands were Brass Contruction, The Trammps, and Archie Bell & the Drells. It looks like this concert may have played in Boston, Massachusetts with Stimer Macolini as the promoter.
Brass Construction was a funk group from Brooklyn, New York active from 1968-1985. Some of their most popular singles included "Movin," "Give and Take," and "Partyline."
The Trammps performed disco and soul tracks out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They found major success in '72 for their cover of "Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart." Then in '76 won a Grammy for the hit single "Disco Inferno." As of 2020, the band remains active.
Archie Bell & The Drells were an R&B vocal group from Houston, Texas circa 1966-1981. They cranked out a number of hits like "Tighten Up," I Can't Stop Dancing," and "Soul City Walk."
