Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
    Born in Cicero, Illinois
    Original Line-Up:
    Gary Loizzo, vocals and guitar
    Al Ciner, guitar
    Kevin Murphy, keyboards
    Charles Colbert, bass guitar
    Lee Graziano, drums
    Recorded the singles 'Step Out Of Your Mind' (1967), 'Bend Me, Shape Me' (1968) and 'Green Light' (1969)
    They were originally called Gary and the Nite Lites.
    After their hits stopped, they shortened their name to the Breed.
    They may not technically be one-hit wonders, but 'Bend Me, Shape Me' is the only one of their hits anyone remembers.
    'Bend Me, Shape Me' was used in commercials for Flexon eyeglass frames, Mercedes Benz station wagons and Gap stretch jeans.
    After further changes in name and personnel, the band evolved into the funk group Rufus.
    Loizzo founded his own recording studio and was twice nominated for a Grammy for 'best engineered album' for Styx's records 'Cornerstone' and 'Kilroy Was Here.'
    After the Chicago White Sox won the 2005 World Series, they reunited to record the song 'Rock with the Sox.'
