Gap Band 8 is the 10th album contrary to the title by American R&B and funk band The Gap Band, released in 1986 on Total Experience Records. It is the first and only album in the band's self-titled series to be subtitled with a regular number instead of a Roman numeral, as well as their final self-titled album. The album includes the singles Big Fun, How Music Came About and Zibble, Zibble Get the Money also known as Get Loose, Get Funky. The album was expanded and remastered in 2011. The Gap Band 8. Their third LP for Total Experience, The Gap Band 8 wasn't nearly as good as the Gap Band's heyday material, but nevertheless proved that they were still a markedly popular commercial entity. With lighthearted and high-spirited songs, the band continued to incorporate eminently danceable music within a loose funk framework. Although, by the middle of the decade, the emphasis was off the funk and on to a popped-out dance ethic, still it was a winning mix that allowed the Gap Band to remain one of the funk genre's most viable 1980s acts.
