bio

The Hues Corporation is a pop and soul trio of the mid ’70s. They began their music career performing at the Circus Circus Hotel in Las Vegas and as an opening act for such artists as Frank Sinatra, Milton Berle, Nancy Sinatra, and Glen Campbell. They are best known for their 1974 classic and infectious hit, “Rock The Boat”, a U.S. #1 single and two million-seller which is considered by many an early classic of disco music; and by some as the first disco song to hit #1.

The Hues Corporation’s four other singles to reach the U.S. pop charts were:
• “Freedom For The Stallion” (1973, #63)
• “Rockin’ Soul” (1974, #18)
• “Love Corporation” (1975, #62), and
• “I Caught Your Act” (1977, #92).

The original group was composed of St. Clair Lee, Flemming Williams, and Ann Kelley. Despite their initial success, the group took a hiatus in 1977. In 1992 The Hues Corporation reemerged with lead singer Wendell E. Anderson, Sr., Elaine Woodard, and St. Clair Lee performing in the Far East, Europe, major venues in the U.S. including Asbury Park in NJ, The Greek Theater in LA, and Madison Square Garden. In 2004 they performed in Get Down Tonight: The Disco Explosion a musical documentary special which aired on PBS.

The Hues Corporation led by long-time lead singer, Wendell E. Anderson, Sr., Jinnerva Shelery, and Deondra Means continues to entertain enthusiastic crowds. During 2018 The Hues Corporation performed at the Ford Amphitheater’s 40th Anniversary of Dance Fever, Bald Hill MC Amphitheater, Disco Fever at St. George Theater, and Bar 360 World Resorts Casino all in New York. In 2019, they performed at the Saturday Night Dance Fever show at Thunder Valley Casino Resort in Sacramento California.

The Hues Corporation currently based out of Cincinnati Ohio continues to “Rock the Boat”.
