New Guys on the Block

New Guys on the Block (not to be confused with New Kids on the Block) were a male R&B vocal group from New Jersey that were signed to Sugar Hill Records.

In 1984, they released their debut album, "The New Guys on the Block" which didn't appear to make the charts at all.
Their first single, "On the Dance Floor" peaked at #63 on Billboard's Black Singles chart in June of 1983, staying on the chart for 7 weeks.

Their follow-up singles "What I Wouldn't Give" and "Ahh Dance" failed to chart and after that, it seems as if the New Guys on the Block have faded into obscurity.
