The Tribe was a funk/disco band consisting of keyboardist/vocalist Earl Foster Jr., guitarist Edward Romias, bassist Robert Apodaga, drummer Benton Miles Little, and violinist Gelon Lau. They issued two albums on ABC, Ethnic Stew and Tribal Bumpin', over 1974-1975; both sold respectably, with the former reaching the Top 50 on the R&B album charts. They subsequently switched over to Farr for the 1976 12" single "Share It," and released another album, Dedication, in 1977. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi
