Raw Deal 954 Drops New Go-Go Track, “See It Through”

by The Alchemist

Originated in Glenarden, MD in 1988, The Raw Deal Band has spanned over 30 years of Go-go Music history. The band’s first release was under Ivan Goff Records and Bad Boy Records with a go-go cover of Craig Mack’s “Flava In Ya Ear” (1995). The band was started by natives of PG County and some University of Maryland Eastern Shore residents.


Now they are based in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and they continue to provide grown, sexy and Latin flavored jams with an authentic go-go pocket.


Their newest song is called, “See It Through” and we are very excited to share a new go-go song with our audience! The track has that classic funky feel bringing joy to the listener from beginning to end. When asking them about the song, they said, “”This is our debut singl. We are a Florida GoGo band. GoGo is the original sound of Washington DC. It is a mix of R&B, Hip Hop, Funk, Gospel infused with heavy percussion beats, help us make GoGo HUGE!”

Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__]( exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.

The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
