The band was formed in 1980 and initially consisted of Isaiah Taylor, Dyson Knight, Herschel Small, Patrick Carey, and Rick Carey.

Their unique sound quickly gained attention and popularity in the Bahamas.

In 1991, Baha Men released their debut album “Junkanoo,” which captured the spirit of their homeland’s music and introduced them to a wider audience. The album showcased their ability to merge traditional Caribbean sounds with contemporary pop and reggae elements. However, it was their 2000 album “Who Let the Dogs Out” that catapulted them to global fame.

Albums like “Move It Like This” (2002) and “Ride With Me” (2015) featured a mix of party anthems and feel-good tracks that captured the essence of their music.
