With roots in London's early 90's acid-jazz scene, Jamiroquai has been inspired by funk, disco and soul for more than 15 years. With lots of retro-disco flavor wrapped around the Stevie Wonder-ful voice of founder Jay Kay, the group found a loyal following on the dance floors in clubs around the world. It wasn't until 1996 that Jamiroquai scored its biggest hit stateside with the highly grooveable "Virtual Insanity." The song's accompanying video featured the remarkable dance talents of lead singer Jay Kay and some innovative editing techniques. It got locked into heavy rotation on MTV, won loads of MTV Video Awards, and sold lots and lots of copies of Jamiroquai's Traveling Without Moving album. In the years following, Jamiroquai has shifted band members and pursued a stronger funk sound, releasing a string of singles available through film, television and game soundtracks and three more albums. In 2006, they delivered a 10 year retrospective of greatest hits, entitled High Times: Singles 1996-2006.
