The Gap Band seemed to me more of a fusion between Funk and Hard Rock, even moreso than Kool & the Gang. The distortion that bass player gets really distinguishes them.

Speaking of them, I remember closing down a number of night clubs back in the day, to "Party Train" by The Gap Band. That song is a huge line dance just waiting to happen. So long as the locomotive and the caboose are sober enough to stay on their feet, it works pretty well, too.
