A dynamic instrumental group formed in Johannesburg in 1983, fusing elements of ska, reggae, mbaqanga and township jazz, it was this line-up that recorded (at Downtown Studios) and released its seven-track debut album, "It's The Dynamics", on cassette tape.
The following year, they recorded (at [a=Hugh Masekela]'s mobile studio in Botswana) and released a five-track mini-album on 12-inch vinyl called "Switch It On and Wind It Up".
After reforming in Cape Town a decade later, their third album, "Organic", was recorded in 1996 at The Nuthouse, an independent Capetonian studio. 500 self-financed CD albums were mastered and manufactured in Taiwan and distributed by the band in 1996.
The band's core members are:
Harvey Roberts: tenor saxophone, vocals
Jimmy Florence: keyboards, bass, trombone
Winston Nyaunda: alto saxophone
Steve Howells: drums
