The house band for Henry Stone's T.K. Records after KC & the Sunshine Band, Foxy was based around Ish Ledesma (lead vocals), Arnold Pasiero (bass), Richie Puente Jr. (percussion), Charlie Murchiano (keyboards), and Joe Galdo (drums). Even while working for T.K., they supplemented their income by gigging; it was at a club in Maryland that the idea for "Get Off," a number one R&B hit, first struck. The boys worked the number up back in Miami at T.K.'s studio, adding female vocals for the chorus. The subsequent release, "Rrrrrrock," did little, and they disbanded after recording three LPs in three years: Get Off, Hot Numbers, and Party Boys. Since then, two CDs have dropped: Get Off: The Best of Foxy in 1995, and Get Off: Hot Numbers in 1998. Ledesma's next venture was the band Oxo ("Whirly Girl") and then a solo album before delving full-time into producing other artists. ~ Andrew HamiltonPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
