Switch was an American R&B/funk band formed in Ohio in the late 1960s. The band initially consisted of members Bobby DeBarge, Tommy DeBarge, Jody Sims, Eddie Fluellen, and Phillip Ingram, though the lineup changed over time. Switch is perhaps best known for their hit songs "There'll Never Be" and "I Call Your Name," reaching the top 10 on the US R&B charts in the late 1970s. Their music blended R&B, funk, and soul elements with smooth vocal harmonies and intricate musical arrangements. 

In addition to its commercial success, Switch is also notable for its influence on the development of funk and R&B music in the 1970s and 1980s. Their innovative use of synthesizers and electronic instrumentation helped pave the way for the emergence of electro-funk and other electronic genres. In addition, the band is well-known as a strong influence on the band DeBarge. 

Although the band does not perform as frequently today, their music continues to be celebrated by fans and musicians alike, with their songs sampled by artists such as Ice Cube and Jay-Z. As a result, Switch remains an integral part of the legacy of American funk and R&B music. Today, they continue to tour with the original members, including Michael McGloiry on guitar and new lead vocalist Akili Nickson.
