The Band was started in 1992, by Andy Hewitt (Bass and Vocals). His love for music and desire to play in a band, prompted him to enlist his school friends, Adrian Reeves (Trumpet), and Jean Fidelia (Tenor Sax), along with his brother John Hewitt (Keyboard), to start the band. Seeing the need for more versatility to "branch out" to other forms of Music, such as Ballads, Oldies, and Lovers Rock, Barbados' popular balladeer, Lee Grant joined the group As the band started to grow, the need for an engineer became increasingly important. Since the band wanted a distinct sound that would differentiate them from the other bands, Technic then inducted Ronald Haynes as the Engineer for their performances. Later, Ronny Kirton (Vocals), Kevyn Allman Stuart (Vocals), Shernell Clarke (Vocals), Ronald Headley (Guitar) and Kerwin Alexander (Drums) were the last to join the band.
