House Guests was an early-1970s American funk group that consisted of bassist William "Bootsy" Collins, his older brother Phelps "Catfish" Collins on guitar, Frank "Kash" Waddy on drums, Clayton "Chicken" Gunnells on trumpet, and Robert McCullough on saxophone.
House Guests was formed in 1971 after the Collins brothers left The J.B.'s, James Brown's band. The band released two singles on their own House Guests label in 1971, "What So Never The Dance" becoming a minor hit.
During 1971 several members of Funkadelic quit, and George Clinton invited the members of House Guests to join Funkadelic in their place. Their unique contributions to Funkadelic's sound can be heard on that band's 1972 release, America Eats Its Young.
In 1976 several members of House Guests became members of Bootsy's Rubber Band, Bootsy Collins' band within the P-Funk musical collective.

Famous quotes containing the words house and/or guests:
“When we of the so-called better classes are scared as men were never scared in history at material ugliness and hardship; when we put off marriage until our house can be artistic, and quake at the thought of having a child without a bank-account and doomed to manual labor, it is time for thinking men to protest against so unmanly and irreligious a state of opinion.”
—William James (18421910)
“When the guests have left, the host is at peace.”
