The Houston R&B group H-Town referenced classic soul on steamy ’90s hits like the unforgettable “Knockin’ Da Boots.”
• Brothers Keven “Dino” Conner and Solomon “Shazam” Conner formed the group—originally known as The Gents—with Darryl “GI” Jackon while the three were in high school. They were signed by Luther “Luke” Campbell of 2 Live Crew fame and renamed H-Town, with Dino positioned as the lead singer.
• Their 1993 debut album, Fever for da Flavor, went platinum and topped the R&B chart on the strength of their libidinous debut single, “Knockin’ Da Boots,” which reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.
• H-Town enjoyed mild success for the rest of the decade, releasing two more albums— Beggin' After Dark and Ladies Edition, Woman’s World—that went gold but failed to match the popularity of their debut.
