Shomari

Shomari was an R&B trio from New Haven, Connecticut which consisted of brothers N'mandi and Rahsaan Langley & their cousin, Troy Frost.
In 1992, Shomari released their debut album, "Every Day Has a Sun" on Mercury Records, which peaked at #77 on Billboard's R&B Albums chart.
The first single, "If You Feel the Need" peaked at #27 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 13 weeks.

The follow-up single, "Let it Be Me (Say You Love Me)" peaked at #59 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 6 weeks.

After that, it seemed that the group had faded into obscurity. These days, the Langley brothers continue to perform in Connecticut, but it's unknown what Troy Frost is up to.

They had a fabulous album. I was disappointed that they didn't continue with the group.

I discovered these guys in 2006 or so in CT. They are producing and performing locally. Rahsaan is working on solo work and sings with multiple groups. Super, super, super nice guys.

It was also Hilliard’s all-time favorite gig because they had their six-piece group with the rich sound of the Hammond B3 organ. webpage
