The group was formed by Derrick Crooks of The Pioneers and Winston Bailey around 1965. However, with Derrick as the only constant member the line-up has been pretty fluid, overlapping with both The Pioneers and The Reggae Boys. Other known members were Derrick's brother Sydney Crooks, Roy Beckford, George Dekker and Abraham Green (later known as Ras Abraham) who is said to have handled the lead vocal on "Johnny Too Bad" when it was recorded for producer Byron Lee in 1970.
