About Timex Social Club


No one can forget the #1 summer jam of 1986, "RUMORS" hailed as one of the best selling 12-inch singles of all time! The Bay Area based group, TIMEX SOCIAL CLUB, took the music industry by storm fusing Hip Hop beats and R&B vocals and topped the billboard charts in sales, radio airplay and club play. The group has been nominated for: American Music Award, Soul Train Music Award, Juno Award (Canada), Bammie Award and Bay Area Top Star Award.

Founder and original member Marcus Thompson has revived that classic 80's TIMEX SOCIAL CLUB sound, by adding Samuelle an Fred "Buz" Busby.
