However, Breakfast Club was Madonna's first band in New York. Yes, that Madonna (and yes, that New York). The Material Girl was briefly the drummer of Breakfast Club, in 1979, I believe. She left to become the lead singer of her own band, Emmy, and then, of course, went out on her own.
Breakfast Club continued on, eventually signing a record deal and releasing their self-titled first album in 1987. "Right on Track," helped out by a catchy, if somewhat bizarre video went on to become a top 10 hit, peaking at #7. No doubt the grooving chickens helped (check out the video if you do not know what I am talking about -- coolest chickens ever.)
While Breakfast Club recorded a second album, it was never released and the band broke up in the late 1980's.
Coll trivia fact: Stephen Bray, the Breakfast Club's drummer, was an old friend of Madonna's from Michigan. He co-wrote "Right on Track," and co-wrote (with Madonna) "Into the Groove," "True Blue," and "Express Yourself" among others. Impressive.
