>Mandrill — House of Wood


Mandrill  was formed by three brothers: Carlos Wilson (trombone, vocals), Lou Wilson (trumpet, vocals) and Ric Wilson (sax, vocals). Born in Panama, they grew up in Broollyn NY. The band included Bundy Cenac (Bass), Neftali Santiago (drums, percussion, vocals), Juaquin Jessup (lead guitar, percussion, vocals), Charles Padro (drums), Claude ‘Coffee’ Cave II (keyboards, percussion, vocals) and Fudgie Kae Solomon (bass) and Omar Mesa (Guitar). They are a Funk band, but they also combined latin, salsa, rock, soul and blues to create their own very distinct style.
House of Wood is a real dark song … If you’re brooding over life’s downs, you’d better not listen.
