"Get Off" was a hit song by Miami-based Latin/disco band Foxy in 1978. Released from their LP of the same name, the song became a crossover hit. It spent two weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot Soul Singles chart during the fall of that year and also peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Along with the track "Tena's Song", "Get Off" peaked at number eighteen on the disco chart. Foxy was a Latin dance/disco group formed in 1976 in Miami, Florida. The group consisted of Cuban vocalist-guitarist Ish 'Angel' Ledesma, percussionist Richard 'Richie' Puente, keyboardist Charlie Murciano, bass guitarist Arnold Paseiro and drummer Joe Galdo. Carl 'Carlo' Driggs contributed vocals/percussion and shared songwriting credits on their second album, "Get Off". Puente, who died on July 18, 2004 at age 51, was the son of the late, famous bandleader Tito Puente. Their biggest hit was "Get Off" in 1978 (written by Ledesma and Driggs), which was their only single release from the album "Get Off". Brian Avnet managed Foxy at the peak of their success and now manages the career of Josh Groban. Ledesma later formed the groups Oxo in 1983 and Company B in 1986. Driggs, in addition to his involvement and writing credits with Foxy, was the lead singer of Kracker, a group touted by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, who released three albums. Driggs was also the lead singer of Paul Revere and The Raiders for over 20 years.
