Mambo Sauce

Named after a popular condiment found in D.C. Chinese take-out restaurants, Mambo Sauce came on the scene in 2007 with their songs "Miracles" and "Welcome to D.C." Their debut album, The Recipe, would follow a couple years later in 2009. The band features Alfred "Black Boo" Duncan and Joi "J.C." Carter as lead vocalists, Jermaine "Lil Pep" Cole on percussion, Patricia "Twink" Little on the drums, Christian "Lil' Chris" Wright on the keyboard and Khari Pratt on bass. Some former members, who went on to play with other legendary go-go bands, include lead vocalist Yendy Brown, lead guitar Andrew "Drew" White, and drummer Barrington "Barry" Talbert.
