  • Eric Matthew, real name Joseph William Tucci "Joe Tucci" (born 1954), has been a record label owner, record producer, engineer, and guitarist, previously involved in New York post-disco scene of the early 1980s. Matthew, originally, performed at weddings, bar mitzvahs, parties in the New York metropolitan area with his friends, then after producing a demo with a fellow bandmember Gary E. Turnier he landed a record deal with an indie label SAM Records owned by Sam Weiss which by then had major label Columbia as their distribution company. Essentially a minimal rock combo with musical influences ranging from deep funk, pop, jazz to disco that consisted of saxophonist, trombonist, flutist, percussionist, and keyboardists was named Gary's Gang by Matthew. His second album Keep on Dancing performed well on the music charts, peaking at #27 on the Billboard R&B Albums and #42 on the Billboard 200. This accomplishment led Matthews to open his own record label and produce other artists. Among those he produced were "Reach Up" by Toney Lee (on his own label) or the album Redd Hott by Sharon Redd (for Prelude Records). (en)
