American multi-genre band formed in Brooklyn, New York City in 1968. Members of the band included three brothers: Carlos Wilson, Lou Wilson, and Ric Wilson. The brothers were born in Panama and grew up in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn. Other members included Claude 'Coffee' Cave II; Bundy Cenac on the band's eponymous first album, replaced by Fudgie Kae Solomon in 1972; Charles Padro for two albums, replaced by Neftali Santiago; and Omar Mesa, replaced in 1974 by Doug Rodriguez. This completed the Mandrill line-up from the Polydor years 1970-1975 which make up the Mandrill sound. Other members of the band in later years included Juaquin Jessup and Tommy Trujillo. Also a fourth brother was added to the group known as Wolf.
