A splinter group of a splinter group, the Sweat Band was folded out of the original Bootsy's Rubber Band. That group came out of the original Parliament/Funkadelic empire. Bassist Bootsy Collins played with them on the single "Freak To Freak," which he co-produced with George Clinton. The Sweat Band included saxophonist Maceo Parker, keybardist Joel Johnson, and drummer Carl Smalls, but they didn't last very long on Uncle Jam Records as a separate part of the Parliament/Funkadelic axis.
