The members, all from Englewood, New Jersey consisted of Michael "Wonder Mike" Wright, Henry "Big Bank Hank" Jackson, and Guy "Master Gee" O'Brien. The three were assembled into a group by producer Sylvia Robinson, who founded Sugar Hill Records with her husband, record mogul Joe Robinson. The group and the record company are named after the Sugar Hill, Manhattan neighborhood.
The Sugarhill Gang never again topped the charts, though it had a few minor hits, such as "Apache", "Eighth Wonder", "Rapper's Reprise," and "Showdown". In 1999, the trio reunited and recorded Jump on It! a hip hop children's album. The group continue to tour. "Here I Am," a track on their album sang by Craig Derry, achieved moderate success despite not being released as a single.
Bob Sinclar collaborated with Wonder Mike and Master Gee on his 2009 release "Lala Song". The Sugarhill Gang is also known as the Original Sugar.
