They were all born in Portland, Oregon, and had known each other since they were kids. The band had been playing together since early 1972 and were discovered at a club in Portland by Wayne Henderson (Trombonist, writer and producer of Crusaders) who brought them to Fantasy Records in 1974. This was the beginning of a six year relationship with the label and a four year relationship with Wayne Henderson who, through his own production company "At Home Productions", was the band's producer and mentor. Pleasure was a very versatile band. Their music can best be described as a fusion of jazz and rock, soul, funk and R&B. Very distinctive, funky and definitely danceable.The group disbanded in the early 1980's.
