Wadadli's principle member, Sly Mongoose, spent the first 16 years of life in the sister-island nation of Antigua and Barbuda in the West Indies. Moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin area at the end of 1989. Did some schooling, 'nuff messing around for years, all the while exploring, recording and performing solo, and with various bands ranging in styles from punk, pop, soul, blues, funk and of course, reggae. Played venues from the smallest cafes to the largest stages and festivals in the state. You've probably seen Sly Mongoose before and know him by other names. You've probably been pumped up by his energy in a different incarnation and been hit hard by the one of a kind beauty and soul in his voice before. Be certain that soon, Wadadli's Sly Mongoose will make a name for himself and for the infectious, uplifing type of reggae he creates. Bless up.
