(Tony Thompson, pictured 2nd from left / Photo credit: YouTube video)Tony Thompson, Roderick “Pooh” Clark, Marcus Sanders, Russell Neal and Toriano Easley were just a group of boys from Waco, Texas when the 90’s R&B group Hi-Five was formed. In 1990 and it wasn’t long after that their self-titled album–produced by the legendary Teddy Riley–went platinum, thrusting them into fame.

Local talent and up-and-coming artist William Walton reached out to Thompson in hopes of making his musical dreams a reality. He was noticed by the first R&B group signed by Jive Records, which consisted of Toriano Easley (who is the only native of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and was later replaced by Treston Irby), Marcus Sanders, Russell Neal, and Roderick “Pooh” Clark who were also from Waco. Taking the name Hi-Five, the group signed with Jive Records in 1990.
