*Lafayette Afro Rock Band Profile : The group was
formed in Long Island, NY as the Bobby Boyd Congress; deciding America
was already overloaded with funk acts, in 1971 they relocated to
France, but when frontman Bobby Boyd returned stateside the remaining
members renamed themselves Ice and became the house session band at
producer Pierre Jaubert's Parisound studio.
