Village People

Village People are a concept disco group formed in the late 1970s.

The group is well known for their on-stage costumes as for their catchy tunes and suggestive lyrics.

Original members were: police officer (Victor Willis), American Indian chief, cowboy, construction worker, biker and Military man For the release of "In the Navy", both Willis and Briley appeared temporarily as sailors.

Originally created to target disco's primarily gay fan base by featuring stereotypical gay fantasy personas, the band's popularity quickly brought them into mainstream.

The group is seen by some music critics as less serious for their camp style, appearance and musical choices.

Village People scored a number of disco and dance hits, including their trademark "Macho Man", "Go West", the classic club medley of "San Francisco / In Hollywood ", "In the Navy", "Can't Stop the Music", "Sex Over the Phone" and their biggest hit, "Y.M.C.A.".
