Harold Sargent, Bernard McDonald and Otha Stokes were among the members of Wood, Brass and Steel, a funk act from the mid 70s.  As a studio band for the acts on Sylvia Robinson's stable of labels, they played on sessions for the Moments and Eddie Fisher before cutting their sole album in 1976.  From the self-titled LP came "Funkanova," a monster groove that was reborn as Black Science Orchestra's "New Jersey Deep."  On the basis of that song, the album became a highly sought after item among dance afficiandos.  Although they never recorded another album, McDonald went on to become an integral member of the Sugarhill studio band.
