Dave Zup Try


Dave Zup

Dayton, Ohio may not be the first location that comes to mind when one thinks about Funk music. However, Dayton musicians such as Ohio Players, Zapp and Lakeside contributed enormously to the commercial success of the genre in the 1970s. Dave Zup wrote “Try” to pay homage to both his home state’s rich musical history and his father, a man who spent the 1970s and 1980s grooving on stages across the Midwest. This 3-minute dance jam blends Zup’s smooth delivery as an emcee with a Funk-inspired beat by The Dreamcatchers. Zup uses his time on the mic to address people who deal with their insecurities by putting others down. “Try” further suggests that no matter what anyone tries to do or say, Dave Zup is not going anywhere.
