N.C.C.U., or New Central Connection Unlimited, was a band formed at North Carolina Central University in the mid-1970s.
Several members previously worked with bands in Durham, Asheville, and Chapel Hill. N.C.C.U. released their sole album Super Trick with the national label United Artists in 1977.
N.C.C.U.’s big break came when famed jazz trumpeter and NCCU professor of music Donald Byrd agreed to manage and produce the group. Through Byrd’s connections, the band secured a recording deal with the national label United Artists and produced the album Super Trick. Among the songs on the album was the disco-funk tribute to Durham, “Bull City Party.”
