About Village People
Village People is a concept disco group formed in United States in 1977, well known for their on-stage costumes as well as their catchy tunes and suggestive lyrics. Original members were: Victor Willis (police officer), Felipe Rose (Native American), Randy Jones (cowboy), Glenn Hughes (biker), David Hodo (construction worker) and Alex Briley (GI). For the release of "In the Navy", Willis and Briley appeared as an admiral and a sailor, respectively. Originally created to target disco's primarily gay audience by featuring stereotypical gay fantasy personas, the band's popularity quickly brought them into mainstream.
