Name: Michele Baresi
Founded as a ska band in mid-1986 by the brothers Oliver and Marco Baresi (a.k.a. Frohn). After quick successes in the small two-tone scene of the GDR, the departure of Knaack and Fröhnke to Torpedo Mahlsdorf and the addition of Marco Leu and Dirk Grützmacher (as second drummer) led to a musical reorientation towards reggae / Africa-Pop .
History: Active from 1977 – 1988. Later they formed the Herbman Band.
