Dunn & Bruce Street

Dunn & Bruce Street were an R&B duo from the early 80's. The members consisted of Dunn Pearson (from Cleveland, Ohio) and Bruce Gray (from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania).
In 1982, the duo released their debut and only album, "Official Business" on Devaki Records. The album didn't appear to make the charts.
The first single, "If You Come With Me" peaked at #45 on Billboard's Hot Soul Singles chart in January of 1982, staying on the chart for 10 weeks.
The second single, "Shout For Joy" peaked at #36 on Billboard's Black Singles chart in July of 1982, staying on the chart for 12 weeks, making it their highest chart appearance on the R&B charts to date.
The last single from the album, "I Owe it To Me" peaked at #63 on Billboard's Black Singles chart in December of 1982, staying on the chart for only 9 weeks. After that, it seems as if Dunn & Bruce Street have faded into obscurity.
