Throwback: Oliver Cheatham-Get Down Saturday Night


Oliver Cheatham’s “Get Down Saturday Night” was a culmination of all the work he did with 4 local bands in his native Detroit and members of One Way. Cheatham and keyboardist Kevin McCord co-wrote the song that was featured on his 1983 debut album for MCA. He followed “Get Down Saturday Night” with “Bless The Ladies” and another dance track “Make Up Your Mind.” Cheatham recorded a total of three albums in the ’80’s and five singles including “SOS,” “Wish On A Star” and “Be Thankful For What You Got.” The singer who currently lives in England released the independent album Stand For Love in 2004.
