Foxy is a latin disco band that formed in 1976, it's lineup included Richie Puente - son of the late bandleader Tito Puente. The other four members of the Miami-based band had moved to Miami from Cuba in 1959. The band's biggest hit was the title track on their second album - 1978's Get Off. The song came about when the band was playing a club in California. They had gotten the crowd going with a a "ooh-wah ooh-wah" chant, and the club owner hated the chant so much he threatened to throw the band out. The song was written by lead singer/guitarist Ish Ledesma, his purpose was to get back at the club owner, and annoy him. Originally the other band member didn't want to perform the song because the knew it would cause trouble - which it did. In one incident, the annoyed club owner shut them down in the middle of the song and threw them out of the club. Foxy released two more studio albums before they broke up in 1983. After the band broke up Ledesma started the band Oxo, and in 1986 he formed the band Company B with his wife and her sister.
