Tampa Bay Garage Bands


Faith, Hope & Charity

This Tampa trio featuring Brenda Hillard, Albert Bailey, and Zulema Cusseaux began recording for Maxwell in 1970, produced by Van McCoy, who wrote their first three singles. "So Much Love" reached 14 on the R&B charts for Maxwell, and they scored their only number one R&B hit with "To Each His Own" on RCA in 1975.

Cusseaux departed in 1971, and Hillard and Bailey were a duo until Diane Destry joined them in 1974. They stayed on RCA until 1978, when they moved to 20th Century. The group had one last hit, "Don't Pity Me" in 1978, which was an R&B Top 20 release. -- by Ron Wynn
